INTRODUCTION: Transcutaneous measurement of gases depends on the degree of skin perfusion. Mechanical ventilation causes alteration in the peripheral perfusion. The aim of this prospective observational study was to assess change in the accuracy of interchangeability of arterial blood gases with those obtained transcutaneously at various phases of mechanical ventilation such as controlled mandatory, synchronized intermittent mandatory, continuous positive airway pressure ventilations, spontaneous breathing trail and spontaneous ventilation after extubation of endotracheal tube. METHODS: Thirty-two adult patients who underwent uncomplicated off pump coronary artery bypass surgery in a tertiary care medical center were subjected to transcutaneous measurements of gases from the sensor placed on the chest during postoperative ventilation. Arterial blood gas analysis was performed at predetermined time intervals and transcutaneous measurements were repeated each of those time. RESULTS: Fifty-four sets of data were obtained during controlled ventilation and fifty during spontaneous. Correlation coefficient for oxygen increased from 0.46 (P = 0.0004) during controlled ventilation to 0.75 (P < 0.0001) during spontaneous. Bland-Altman and mountain plots suggested better inter- changeability of values between arterial blood gas and transcutaneous gas monitoring. The bias for oxygen changed from 21 during controlled ventilation to 25 during spontaneous ventilation and the precision from 7.1 to 6.4. There was no change in the accuracy of transcutaneous carbon dioxide values during either phase of ventilation. CONCLUSION: The accuracy of transcutaneously measured values of oxygen improved significantly during spontaneous ventilation.
