Abstract
The blood content in cutaneous microvessels shows periodical alterations, the so-called microcirculation oscillations. Depending on measurement conditions they are based on passive reactions (cardial and respiratory oscillations) or on active regulation (e. g. Hering-Traube waves). They can be observed by means of a fiber optic sensor system. Digitized and transfered into a computer the measurement can be analysed (Fourier transformation) and several physiological tests can be evaluated. Effects on the oscillations could be achieved e. g. by temperature changes, several drugs or electromagnetic fields.
