Use of Laser Speckle to Study Cutaneous Blood Flow at Exercise in Healthy Subjects

2014-08-27 03:12:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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

Description

Ischemia and post occlusive reactive hyperhemia in the skin is tested in healthy normal subjects at rest and during cycle exercise.

The Effect of Pregabalin Given Preoperatively on the Tourniquet Induced Ischemia-reperfusion

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 ...

The Role of SCUBE-1 in Ischemia-reperfusion Injury

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: Pilot Study

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...

Effect of Tourniquet Use on Muscle Thigh Function.

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...

Ischemia and Reperfusion Injury in the Human: An Observational Study

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...

Civilian Prehospital Tourniquet Use Is Associated with Improved Survival in Patients with Peripheral Vascular Injuries.

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...

Lidocaine Patch to Treat Postoperative Tourniquet Pain After Total Knee Replacement: A Case Report.

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...

Non-drainage versus drainage in tourniquet-free knee arthroplasty: a prospective trial.

It is still unknown whether drainage is necessary and non-drainage is safe and acceptable after tourniquet-free total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We aim to investigate whether non-drainage use is accepte...

Influence of Personality Traits on the Effective Performance of Lifesaving Interventions: Example of the Tourniquet Application in Forward Combat Casualty Care.

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...

Reduced amputation rate with isovolemic hemodilution in critical limb ischemia patients.

Critical limb ischemia (CLI) patients are characterized by intractable pain in spite of medication, non-healing ulcers, and gangrene. The objective of this study was to investigate whether or not isov...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)
