Paper Abstract

Intravascular low level laser irradiation (ILLLI) therapy has been applied in clinic widely since Mester et a!. reported the beneficial effects of low-level laser treatment on wound healing in the early 1980s. Clinical reports show that is an effective measure. But the mechanism of ILLLI is not very clear yet. In this article, it will be discussed why the oxygen content in the blood increases after irradiated by He-Ne laser and how does it influence the functions of body. It will be proved that the ability of blood carrying oxygen acts as a key role in the ILLLI.
