Photoplethysmography is a method of screening diagnostics of the blood vessels condition. This is a simple, non-invasive, painless and reliable express method based on determination of blood volume in the micro vascular canal.
The principle of photoplethysmography is to determine the blood volume change in the area, where the measurement is taken. Using the hardware and software complex of digital photoplethysmography is performed on the terminal falange of the hand. This allows getting the maximum information about the microvasculature due to the intense capillary blood flow in the area of the fingertips.
How does it work?
Photoplethysmography as a diagnostic method of graphic study blood filling of tissues in dynamics provides adequate information about the condition peripheral hemodynamic and vascular tone. In the pathogenesis of most diseases there are microcirculation disorders, the diagnosis of which allow detecting diseases at early stages and track the treatment process. Using functional probes helps to carry out different diagnostics between organic disorders and functional changes in peripheral vessels.
This Method will help to find out
- Heart rate (pulse)
- Elasticity of blood vessels and stiffness of the aorta
- The stress level of the body
- The biological age of the vessels
- The oxygen content in the blood
