Paper Abstract

Blood micro-circulation in upper skin layers has been studied experimentally in real time by advanced two-channel photoplethysmography (PPG) techniques. The blood volume changes caused by micro-vessel expansion and dilution during the cardiac cycles have been detected by infrared optical contact sensors. A newly developed portable monitoring device comprising a lap-top computer was used for accumulation and processing of the bio-signals. Shapes of the PPG signals detected at different sites of the body were compared with these obtained by computer modeling.
