Abstract A description is given of apparatus that has been developed for the servocontrol of arterial oxygen tension in preterm infants with respiratory problems. By using a continuous reading from an indwelling umbilical arterial-oxygen electrode, we have been able to regulate the oxygen supply to preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome and thus prevent prolonged episodes of hypoxia and hyperoxia.
