    A transcutaneous electrochemical sensor designed to estimate arterial oxygen (Pao2) and carbon dioxide (Paco2) tensions simultaneously and continuously was evaluated in newborn infants with respiratory illnesses. After calibration with two dry gas mixtures the sensor gave estimates of Pao2 and Paco2 that were comparable with those obtained by two separate electrodes that are already established in clinical use.
