Evaluates the physiological testing in clinical angiology. Reliance using the patients history and physical examination for initial detection of vascular lesions as major diagnostic procedures; Detection of pulse waves using plethysmographs which utilize a variety of transducers; Revelation on the results of physiological measurements cannot be used for prognosis but are valuable as baselines in evaluating results.

    An experimental study on 12 healthy individuals was conducted over a period of six months, using the transoxode probe to assess cutaneous blood flow via measurements of transcutaneous oxygen tension (Tcp02) and relative heat power input (R.H.P.). The possible clinical use of the probe in...

    Central aortic pressure waveforms can be calculated from the radial artery pressure waveform using a generalized transfer function to correct for pressure wave distortion in the upper limb. Although validated to standards conventionally applied, reservations are still expressed on use of this...

    The article presents studies on the effects of vasoconstrictor drugs on the hepatic circulation that have been based on measurements of the blood pressure and blood flow. Those methods do not allow for separate analysis of the three hepatic vascular systems which are connected with each other....

  • Exercise-induced blood flow in relation to muscle relaxation period. Ohmori, Fumiko; Shimizu, Shizuyo; Kagaya, Atsuko // Dynamic Medicine;2007, Vol. 6, p5 

    Background: Dynamic exercise is characterized by relaxation periods between contractions. The relaxation period should be considered as a causal factor for determining the magnitude of blood flow during dynamic exercise. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of muscle...

    Demonstrates that the arrangement of arteries in which smooth-muscle elements of the wall of large arteries are located at an angle of 30-50 degrees to the vessel axis, is optimal for the durability of arteries through which blood permanently flows in pulses. Model of a blood vessel; Elastic...
