The monitoring of the bioelectric activity of acupoints by means of electroacupunctogram (EAG) represents a direct and precise recording technique of the acupoints functional state. The EAG recording is done by introduction in the acupoint at corresponding depth of a standard silvered-steel electrode-needle and the measurements are made bipolar, i.e.,(More)
The loss of sensitivity to nociceptive stimuli is one of the main factors involved in the pathogeny of diabetic gangrene. The aim of this study was to develop a simple and practical method for selecting the cases prone to such a complication. The perception threshold (either voltage, mV or current, microA) was determined in 137 randomly selected diabetic(More)
The aim of the present study was to characterize the patterns of signals associated with noninvasively detected skin sudomotor transient reflexes in a group of 221 apparently healthy people, aged between 16 and 72 years. By means of two pairs of surface electrodes applied respectively to the palm of the hand and to the sole of the foot skin impedance(More)
BlackSea TeleDiab (BSTD) is a multidisciplinary research project whose aim is to promote the exchange of healthcare information between clinicians and scientists in countries of the Black Sea area to provide a means by which the care of patients with diabetes may be enhanced. The project is built on an existing organizational framework provided by the WHO(More)
the Quality of Health Systems WHO/Europe, who passed away in October 2013. Kirsten was a very good friend of many Romanian scientists (including authors) and clinicians. She attended many national scientific events in diabetes that took place in our country (Bucharest, Craiova, Cluj, Iasi, Oradea and Eforie, Constanta). She has promoted our country at the(More)
The functional status of the cutaneous division of the orthosympathetic nervous system was indirectly and non-invasively assessed by monitoring the skin electrical relative resistance variations (SERV). The advantages of our recording system of second generation were (1) simultaneous recording on two or four channels of the evoked electrodermal response to(More)
