This volume contains the proceedings of a three-day symposium on the clinical applications of oximetry held at Chartridge, Buckinghamshire in May 1985. The meeting was organised by the Research Department of Anaesthetics of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Ohmeda, the Life Support Equipment Division of BOC Health Care, who also acted as sponsors. It was the third such meeting on oxygen measurements held over the past 21 years under the auspices of the Research Department and under the same chairman with some of the same participants. The first, sponsored by the CIBA Foundation and held in London in 1964, was primarily concerned with the assessment of rapid and accurate methods of blood-gas analysis. Based on new technology these techniques had been developed to meet a well defined need in such fields as cardiac and peripheral vascular surgery, monitoring in intenยญ sive care units and the management of patients with severe cardioยญ respiratory disease. Although oximetry was discussed at that meeting, the emphasis was primarily on polarography and gas chromatography and on the equipment that had been designed to handle relatively minute discrete blood samples of the order of 100 J.ll or less
