The Effect of Hyperoxia and Hypoxia on Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Ophthalmoscopy in Healthy Subjects- a Randomized, Double Blind, Crossover Study

2019-09-24 05:27:36 | BioPortfolio


The present study aims to investigate whether FLIO can also detect shorttime changes in retinal metabolism induced by hyperoxia and hypoxia. For this purpose, 48 healthy subjects will be included in the present study and changes in FLIO will be assessed during breathing of 100% oxygen to induce hyperoxia as well as during breathing of 12% oxygen in nitrogen to induce hypoxia. Since stimulation with flickering light also induces a higher metabolic demand in the retina (functional hyperemia), thisprovocation test will also applied during breathing of the different gas mixtures and compared to baseline. To gain information about retinal blood flow, optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) will be performed. The results of the present study can help to gain more insight into the physiology of the retinal metabolism and might give grounds to establish new biomarkers in future studies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any method of artificial breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2).

A syndrome related to increased atmospheric pressure and characterized by tremors, nausea, dizziness, decreased motor and mental performance, and SEIZURES. This condition may occur in those who dive deeply (c. 1000 ft) usually while breathing a mixture of oxygen and helium. The condition is associated with a neuroexcitatory effect of helium.

Measurement of the intensity and quality of fluorescence.

An analytical method for detecting and measuring FLUORESCENCE in compounds or targets such as cells, proteins, or nucleotides, or targets previously labeled with FLUORESCENCE AGENTS.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
