Transcutaneous monitoring – or continuous, non-invasive monitoring – of tcpO2 and tcpCO2 can detect changes in the oxygenation and ventilation status of neonates. [2, 3, 4, 5]
Transcutaneous monitoring complements arterial and capillary blood sampling. You can reduce the number of blood samples and limit unnecessary handling of the infant, while ensuring careful control of your patient. [3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
The TCM5 FLEX transcutaneous monitor helps reduce patient discomfort with system defined limits of site time vs. temperature to reduce the risk of harm from the heated electrode by predefined combinations of time and temperature.
