Paper Abstract

A lot of industry workers all over the world have dealings with a strong mechanical vibration as with daily technology processes. Very often such long-time professional vibration causes the so-called professional "vibration disease", in English literature "white fingers syndrome", caused by a local vibration of hands. Among different clinical features of the vibration disease a leader's part of them consists of different cardiovascular and trophic disorders of tissues. The objects of the present study were the peripheral blood microcirculation, peripheral blood oxygenation and tissues hypoxia state in a finger skin under vibration disease. For this purpose we have used a combined noninvasive spectrophotometry diagnostic technique consisting of Laser-Doppler Flowmetry (LDF), Laser Fluorescent Diagnostics (LFD) and Tissues Reflectance Oximetry (TRO). The results show good possibilities of all mentioned above diagnostic methods in estimation of different vascular disorders. A good correlation between persistent microcirculation disorders and trophic disturbances revealed in tissues of distal ends of upper extremities of the patients with vibration disease was estimated. Additionally, in present study with the use of real and long-time TRO and LDF methods a good correlation between LDF and TRO data including correlation in detected rhythms of blood microcirculation was estimated as well.
