Best Publishing has kindly granted me permission to reproduce an article on Vascular Screening which I wrote for that magazine in 2010. I briefly discuss the difference between Transcutaneous oximetry (TcPO2) and skin perfusion pressure (SPP). There are many scholarly articles which cover the topic better and in more detail. This was just meant as a quick read for the basics. Thank you, Best Publishing, for granting permission.

(And warning – since this article is a decade old, references to billing codes are likely out of date).
