We aim to test the hypothesis that Laser speckle contrast imaging allows for the measurement of cutaneous blood flow during exercise.

The application of tourniquet is indispensable for a bloodless surgical area in total knee arthroplasty surgery. The release of tourniquet produces reactive oxygen species which can cause ...
One consequence of tissue damage caused by tourniquet is ischemia-reperfusion injury. Short-term ischemia leads to vasodilatation and reactive hyperemia resulting in post-ischemic reperfus...
Changes in tissue microcirculation during ischemic conditioning (4 cycles of 5-min ischemia and 5-min reperfusion) has not been well documented. In previous studies, there was difference i...
The use of a pneumatic tourniquet with the purpose of maintaining an operative field free of blood is a common practice in orthopedic surgery. Its use is associated with local and systemic...
We, the researchers at Lawson Health Research Institute, propose to investigate the impact of surgical ischemia and reperfusion on skeletal muscle microcirculation using a hand-held micros...
Tourniquet use has been proven to reduce mortality on the battlefield. Although empirically transitioned to the civilian environment, data substantiating survival benefit attributable to civilian tour...
Intraoperative tourniquet-related pain is well recognized by anesthesiologists, but postoperative tourniquet-related pain has received little attention. We present a patient who underwent a total knee...
Health care delivery in military conflicts implies high-stress environments. Hemorrhage is the first cause of survivable death among combat casualties, and tourniquet application is one of the most cr...
Liver failure results in hyperammonaemia, impaired regulation of cerebral microcirculation, encephalopathy and death. However, the key mediator that alters cerebral microcirculation remains unidentifi...
Diabetes mellitus is frequently associated with vascular pathologies and hemorheological disorders.
A disorder characterized by a reduction of oxygen in the blood combined with reduced blood flow (ISCHEMIA) to the brain from a localized obstruction of a cerebral artery or from systemic hypoperfusion. Prolonged hypoxia-ischemia is associated with ISCHEMIC ATTACK, TRANSIENT; BRAIN INFARCTION; BRAIN EDEMA; COMA; and other conditions.
The circulation of the BLOOD through the MICROVASCULAR NETWORK.
The chilling of a tissue or organ during decreased BLOOD perfusion or in the absence of blood supply. Cold ischemia time during ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION begins when the organ is cooled with a cold perfusion solution after ORGAN PROCUREMENT surgery, and ends after the tissue reaches physiological temperature during implantation procedures. WARM ISCHEMIA TIME starts then and ends with completion of SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS.
Localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. This frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (HYPOXIA, BRAIN). Prolonged ischemia is associated with BRAIN INFARCTION.
A distinct and virulent form of DENGUE characterized by thrombocytopenia and hemoconcentration (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive tourniquet test. When accompanied by circulatory failure and shock (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Anything that breaks the skin is a wound because when the skin is broken, there's a risk of germs getting into the body and causing an infection. Follow and track Wound Care News on BioPortfolio: Wound Car...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
