Short Term and Day to Day Reproducibility of Reflectometric Measurement of Retinal Oxygen Saturation in Healthy Subjects

2014-08-27 03:18:47 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Adequate perfusion and oxygenation is essential for the function of the inner retina. Although this is a well known fact, measurement of oxygen saturation in the eye is still a delicate and not fully explored task. However, recently a new instrument for the non-invasive measurement of retinal vessel oxygen saturation has been introduced. Unfortunately, no data about reproducibility in humans is yet available for this instrument. Consequently, the current study seeks to evaluate the short term and day to day reproducibility of retinal vessel oxygenation in healthy volunteers.

20 healthy volunteers will be included and oxygen saturation of retinal vessels will be determined. The reproducibility of the results will be tested by repeated measurements and the collected data will be independently analyzed by two observers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A group of rare, idiopathic, congenital retinal vascular anomalies affecting the retinal capillaries. It is characterized by dilation and tortuosity of retinal vessels and formation of multiple aneurysms, with different degrees of leakage and exudates emanating from the blood vessels.

Measurement of the blood pressure of the retinal vessels. It is used also for the determination of the near point of convergence (CONVERGENCE, OCULAR). (From Cline, et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

The determination of oxygen-hemoglobin saturation of blood either by withdrawing a sample and passing it through a classical photoelectric oximeter or by electrodes attached to some translucent part of the body like finger, earlobe, or skin fold. It includes non-invasive oxygen monitoring by pulse oximetry.

Formation of new blood vessels originating from the retinal veins and extending along the inner (vitreal) surface of the retina.

The blood vessels which supply and drain the RETINA.
