Application of intravenous laser irradiation of blood (ILIB) is considered to be the most effective method of laser therapy and its application is expedient pathogenetically in the ischemic disturbances. The aim of this study is to investigate ILIB influence with red helium-neon laser (HNL) with 630 nm wavelength and different powers on blood oxygen transport (BOT), cerebral and dermal microhaemodynamics (MGD), hydro-ion balance in normal rabbits and after modeling of local ischemia of brain (LIB). Experimental cerebral ischemia is characterized by development of BOT disturbance, ionic disbalance and edema in the ischemic brain region. Microcirculation disturbances with worsening of the cerebral and dermal MHD were revealed. ILIB with HNL radiation of 2.5 and 4.5 mW powers provokes dehydratation of brain structure alone with the K+, Na+ concentration decreasing and hemoglobin-oxygen affinity increasing in intact group of animals. There was not revealed marked changes of cerebral MHD condition here. Using of ILIB in rabbits after LIB contributes for improving function of BOT, normalizing of water content in all cerebral structures compared to operated animals. Preventive ILIB provoked improvement of speckl-optical parameters and marked protective effect on microhaemodynamics processes in superficial brain structures. HNL radiation with 1.0 mW power results in worsening of oxygen transport, cerebral and skin MHD, hydro-ion homeostasis in animals with LIB modeling. Thus, laser haemotherapy contributes for improving of hydro-ion status, blood oxygen transport and cerebral microcirculation in brain ischemia, what allows considering that helium-neon radiation with the pointed regimen is substantiated pathogenetically in brain ischaemia.
