Paper Abstract

Nowadays together with known optic techniques of microcirculation blood flow monitoring, skin temperature measurements are developed as well. In this paper, a simple one-dimensional bioheat transfer model was developed to analyse the heat wave transport in biological tissue, where an arteriole vessel with pulsatile blood is located. The simulated results show that the skin temperature oscillation amplitudes attenuate with the increase of blood flow oscillation frequency which gives the same tendency as that in the experiments. The parameter analyses further show that the amplitude of oscillation is also influenced by oscillation amplitude of blood and effective thermal conductivity. When oscillation amplitude of blood flow and effective thermal conductivity increase, the amplitude of skin temperature oscillation increases nonlinearly. Variation of effective thermal convective influence to the time delay of the thermal wave on the skin surface and distort it. Combination of two measurement techniques: one for estimation blood flow oscillations in the microvessels and other to the skin temperature measurement can produce additional information about the skin properties.
