Assessment of skin microcirculation provides diagnostically valuable information during the early stages of pathologies. The simple, cost-effective and intrusive alternative to existing circulation assessment methods is remote photoplethysmography (rPPG). The objective of the present pilot study was to reveal an effect on sublingual administration of 1 mg nitroglycerin on systemic hemodynamic parameters and rPPG waveforms, at 810 nm and 530nm illumination. The protocol comprised 3 minutes of baseline recording, 15 minutes recording of NTG effect, 2 minutes of arterial occlusion and the following 3 min reactive hyperemia. Two PPG signals were acquired from glabrous skin of the middle finger distal phalange, consecutively at 530 nm and 810nm, 125 fps per channel, and systemic cardiovascular parameters were continuously registered in a beat-to-beat manner with a Finameter-midi system. The NTG effect was observed 0.7- 1.2 minutes post administration, reaching its maximum after 3 minutes. Systemic cardiovascular parameters significantly changed: mean arterial pressure decreased by 7.7±3.6%, total peripheral resistance by 10.5±9.0%, whereas the heart rate increased by 27.2±11.8%. Substantial alterations were observed for rPPG waveforms during NTG effect, decreasing reflection and stiffness indices. It has been concluded that rPPG waveform may provide information related to arterial stiffness, and could be potentially utilized in the clinics.
