Summary of "Reliability of microvascular responsiveness measures derived from near-infrared spectroscopy across a variety of ischemic periods in young and older individuals."

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is associated with impairments in microvascular responsiveness. Therefore, reliably assessing microvascular function is clinically relevant. Thus, this study aimed to examine the reliability of the near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS)-derived oxygen saturation (StO) reperfusion slope, a measure of microvascular responsiveness, to four different vascular occlusion tests (VOT) of different durations in young and older participants.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Measurement of the regional temperature of the body or an organ by infrared sensing devices, based on self-emanating infrared radiation.

That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum usually sensed as heat. Infrared wavelengths are longer than those of visible light, extending into the microwave frequencies. They are used therapeutically as heat, and also to warm food in restaurants.

A spectroscopic technique in which a range of wavelengths is presented simultaneously with an interferometer and the spectrum is mathematically derived from the pattern thus obtained.

Spectrophotometry in the infrared region, usually for the purpose of chemical analysis through measurement of absorption spectra associated with rotational and vibrational energy levels of molecules. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

A noninvasive technique that uses the differential absorption properties of hemoglobin and myoglobin to evaluate tissue oxygenation and indirectly can measure regional hemodynamics and blood flow. Near-infrared light (NIR) can propagate through tissues and at particular wavelengths is differentially absorbed by oxygenated vs. deoxygenated forms of hemoglobin and myoglobin. Illumination of intact tissue with NIR allows qualitative assessment of changes in the tissue concentration of these molecules. The analysis is also used to determine body composition.
