In order to elucidate the role of mucosal blood flow in stress ulceration in critically ill patients with thermal or head injury, we applied reflectance spectrophotometry to the human gastric mucosa. During gastrofiberscopy, the spectra of the corpus and antral gastric mucosa were taken using a flexible coaxial optic bundle and a computer-equipped spectrophotometer. The subjects were 27 patients with thermal or head injury, and they were compared with 8 young healthy volunteers and 9 age… CONTINUE READING
