Normal variation in cutaneous blood content and red blood cell velocity in humans.


This study was designed to determine normal variations in cutaneous blood content, red blood cell content and skin thickness in healthy human volunteers. The blood content (BC) of human skin and the velocity of red blood cells (RBV) has been comprehensively mapped over 30 anatomical sites in 28 volunteers between the age of 7 and 77 years using reflectance… (More)
