C8.2 - Optochemical Sensor Intrumentation for Continuous Monitoring of Abdominal Oxygen Tension by Microdialysis

A. Bizzarri, M. Cajlakovic, M. Suppan & V. Ribitsch
The continuous monitoring of adipose tissue oxygen tension (pO2) in patients affected by obesity and type 2 diabetes is of high importance. Low levels of oxygen tension in adipose tissue may indicate an inflammatory status and play a decisive role in the development of insulin resistance from the patient. Optochemical sensor technology combined with microdialysis is particularly suitable for the development of minimally invasive instrumentation for medical application. We report about an optochemical sensor system...
