Studies of age-related changes in blood perfusion coherence using wearable blood perfusion sensor system


Laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) was used for detection of age-related changes in the blood microcirculation. The LDF signal was simultaneously recorded from the 3rd fingers' pads of both hands. Amplitudes of the blood flow oscillations and wavelet coherence of the signals were used for the data analysis. A statistical difference in the synchronisation of myogenic oscillations was found between the two studied age groups. Myogenic oscillations of blood perfusion in the younger group had a higher wavelet coherence parameter than in the older group. Observed site-specific and age-related differences in blood perfusion can be used in the future in the design of experimental studies of the blood microcirculation system in patients with different pathologies.
