A study on blood cell damage after irradiation of fresh whole blood with 630 nm laser light was carried out in vitro. Various fluence rates of laser light were used with and without cooling of blood. Damage to the blood was assessed by blood cell counts, osmotic fragility measurements and examination of blood films. Exposure of a 1 mm blood layer to 630 nm laser light without cooling led to changes in blood counts first detected at fluence rates of 130 mW/cm2. Changes in osmotic fragility first… CONTINUE READING
