Transcutaneous oxygen monitor is a medical equipment which used to calculate the amount of oxygen diffusing through the layers of skin into the capillaries. Transcutaneous oxygen measurement is an important tool for diagnosing and assessment tool for individuals. Transcutaneous oxygen monitors were intended for neonatal use; however, these have become an important tool in several clinical areas such as quantification & diagnosis of peripheral vascular diseases, revascularization, and hyperbaric treatment. Transcutaneous oxygen monitor sensors once placed over the skin surface start recording oxygen levels. It is to be noted that these electrodes must be calibrated before use.

Transcutaneous oxygen monitoring is routinely performed for premature babies in NICU, as sudden changes in oxygen levels can lead to severe complications such as hypoxia, retinopathy, and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. In order to measure the oxygen levels, a sensor is applied over the body to record and measure the rate of diffusion of blood gases through the skin. In case of infants, the optimum levels of transcutaneous oxygen should be 60 mm Hg to 70 mm Hg.
Transcutaneous oxygen monitors play an important role by providing evidence on the levels of oxygen supply to the tissue during absorption, transport, and de-oxygenation process. Transcutaneous oxygen monitoring helps to improve diagnosis of individuals with peripheral angiopathy.
