NIM; coord with disease /‌blood, not /‌physiopathol; when IM, do not coord with OXYGEN /‌blood or CARBON DIOXIDE /‌blood
Scope Note
The noninvasive measurement or determination of the partial pressure (tension) of oxygen and/or carbon dioxide locally in the capillaries of a tissue by the application to the skin of a special set of electrodes. These electrodes contain photoelectric sensors capable of picking up the specific wavelengths of radiation emitted by oxygenated versus reduced hemoglobin.
