The PeriFlux System 5000 offers the possibility to monitor transcutaneous oxygen and carbon dioxide using Clark type electrodes. Remote panel systems are available to facilitate use in hyperbaric chambers.
Dedicated PSW ExM application software
The PeriFlux System 5000 is operated using the PSW ExM application software installed on a PC or laptop. PSW ExM will guide the user throughout the examination by clear instructions on the screen. At the end of the examination, results are summarized in an extensive report. A DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) compatible version of PSW ExM is available.
Up to 4 channels tcpO2/CO2 per unit
The main unit may be equipped with up to 4 channels of tcpO2/tcpCO2. Each channel is used together with one Clark type electrode (for tcpO2 only) or one combined pO2/pCO2 sensor (for tcpO2/tcpCO2). Several main units may be connected to extend the number of channels.
Extend with other peripheral pressure tests
The PeriFlux System 5000 is a modular system that can be further expanded to include other techniques for diagnosing the peripheral circulation, such as peripheral pressures (toe/ankle pressures), Skin Perfusion Pressure (SPP) and Pulse Volume Recording (PVR). This will provide you with a complete solution for vascular assessments, all in one instrument.
Why measure tcpO2?
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and microvascular impairment will influence the outcome of a wound. To prevent limb loss, the degree of ischemia has to be assessed at an early stage. Transcutaneous oxygen (tcpO2) has proven to be a useful tool to predict wound healing potential. tcpO2 is particularly important in patients with critical limb ischemia and/or diabetes, as these patients commonly have impaired microvascular function and falsely elevated ABI values.
