Abstract

The blood gases compared in the two methods had a strong correlation for pH, PaCO(2), PaO(2), and oxygen saturation. Although the bicarbonate and base excess values showed suboptimal statistical correlation, the difference was not clinically relevant. Results of this study indicate that this technology provides an accurate means of monitoring continuous blood gas parameters in neonatal patients. It also allows reduced healthcare provider exposure to blood and decreased patient iatrogenic blood loss.
