Transcutaneous oxygen monitoring (TCOM / tcpO2) is a well-documented technique reflecting the nutritive flow in the capillaries. Today, TCOM / tcpO2 is commonly used in clinical applications such as wound healing assessment, hyperbaric medicine, amputation level determinations and more.
Perimed offers two different solutions for TCOM / tcpO2 monitoring; the Vascular Lab PeriFlux System 5000 or the latest generation of TCOM equipment, the PeriFlux 6000. Both systems are based on the same technique, use Clark type electrodes for measurements and include typical Perimed software for straightforward operation and automatic report generation.
The main differences between the two different options are stated below:
|PeriFlux 6000||The Vascular Lab PeriFlux System 5000|
|Operated using touchscreen interface.||Operated using PC or laptop computer.|
|Up to 8 channels tcpO2/tcpCO2 per Main Unit||Up to 4 channels tcpO2/tcpCO2 per Main Unit.|
|Portable.||Requires mobile carrier.|
|Only tcpO2/tcpCO2.||Expandable to include e.g. peripheral pressures (toe/ankle pressures), Skin Perfusion Pressure (SPP), Pulse Volume Recording (PVR) or further tcpO2/tcpCO2 channels, providing a complete solution for vascular assessments, all in one instrument.|
