Abstract On two samples of rehabilitation patients of different age groups (approx. 38 years and approx. 51 years), via a placebo-controlled study series using representative features of microcirculation, the complementary therapeutic success of additional treatment complementing the biorhythmically defined physical vasomotion stimulation was determined. The results showed that in older rehabilitation patients the amounts of characteristic microcirculatory changes were greater than in younger…

Vasomotion: mechanisms and physiological importance.
A review of the causes and effects of smooth muscle oscillation (termed vasomotion) and its consequences and how it might participate in the development and maintenance of pathophysiological states is reviewed.
Handbook of physiology : microcirculation
This reference highlights the explosive growth in knowledge about the microcirculation including the biology of nitric oxide synthase (NOS), endothelial cell signaling, angiogenesis, cell adhesion molecules, lymphocyte trafficking, ion channels and receptors, and propagated vasomotor responses.
Effects of arterial wall stress on vasomotion.
A model of a blood vessel describing the calcium dynamics in a coupled population of smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells and the consequent vessel diameter variations shows that a rise in pressure increases the calcium concentration.
Vasomotion: cellular background for the oscillator and for the synchronization of smooth muscle cells
The interpretation of the experimental observations is supported by theoretical modelling of smooth muscle cells behaviour, and the new insight into the mechanisms of vasomotion has the potential to provide tools to investigate the physiological role of Vasomotion.
Simultaneous, endoscopic measurement of microvascular oxygen saturation and laser-doppler flow in gastric mucosa
This primary study shows that the developed probe can be used to monitor µHbO2, rel.Hb-con.
Simultaneous measurement of local cortical blood flow and tissue oxygen saturation by Near infra-red Laser Doppler flowmetry and remission spectroscopy in the pig brain.
Although the problem of spatial variability remains to be solved, the combined use of NiLDF and RS allows continuous and non-invasive monitoring of changes of key parameters of oxygen metabolism within the cerebral cortex.
A remission spectroscopy system for in vivo monitoring of hemoglobin oxygen saturation in murine hepatic sinusoids, in early systemic inflammation
BackgroundDuring the early stages of systemic inflammation, the liver integrity is compromised by microcirculatory disturbances and subsequent hepatocellular injury. Little is known about the
Investigation of skin by ultraviolet remittance spectroscopy
Remittance spectroscopy in the ultraviolet spectral region was used to investigate human skin in vivo and yielded a hypsochromic shift of the keratin absorption band due to changes in polarity and proton concentration in the environment of the chromophores.
