Near infrared (NIR) biomedical probes have attracted a great deal attention for many years because of its advantages of non-invasion, safety, economy, simplicity, and portability. If changes caused by re-distribution of blood volume and oxygenation level are detected, more pathophysiologic information will be revealed. But most of NIR biomedical probes use(More)
Open Access prospective study showed that smokers were younger and were more likely to experience severe snoring with increased nasal obstruction, lower nasal volumes after decongestion and a longer soft palatal length compared to nonsmokers [15]. Furthermore, Kim et al. [16] reported that smoking OSA patients presented thicker lamina propria of the uvula(More)
The goal of this work is to understand how the pressure that is applied to the surface affects the composition of the tissue and illustrate that the pressure-induced changes are significant and that are likely dependent on the tissue composition. In this paper, we propose a novel method to make continuous-wave light illuminate the vivo tissue with external(More)
