Autonomic control of skin microvessels: assessment by power spectrum of photoplethysmographic waves.

Abstract:

1. Although it is well known that the microvessels of the skin constantly undergo spontaneous variations in volume, the significance of these rhythmic changes remains uncertain. 2. In 10 healthy males and in 15 patients in intensive care, we assessed the origin of the autonomic influences on spontaneous fluctuations in the microcirculation of the skin, obtained by an infra-red photoplethysmographic device; we used spectral analysis techniques to compare these fluctuations (which were recorded...
