Converting far infrared image information to other physiological data

I. Fujimasa; T. Chinzei; I. Saito IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, 2000

Skin temperature is determined by blood-flow rate, structure of subcutaneous tissue, and activities of the sympathetic nervous system, which regulate heat dissipation from the body surface. Because of this, we can noninvasively detect distributions of many physiological functions from thermal images of the skin surface obtained by far infrared (FIR) imaging. If we can describe equations by which we calculate ...


Infrared Imaging Analysis for Thermal Comfort Assessment

Fabrice De Oliveira; Sophie Moreau; Claudine Gehin; Andre Dittmar 2007 29th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2007

Skin temperature is a relevant and effective indicator for objective evaluation of human sensations and thermal states according to the surrounding thermal stresses. Managed by skin blood flow, sympathetic nervous system (constriction and sweating), subcutaneous thermal structure and facial vein patterns, facial coetaneous temperature variability can give information non- invasively on many physiological functions. These informations are deduced from thermal ...


Different interference patterns among spontaneous low and high frequency oscillations and forced ventilation in sympathetic outflow

A. Porta; G. Baselli; E. Manessi; A. Manziana; S. Cerutti; N. Montano; T. Gnecchi-Ruscone; F. Lombardi; A. Malliani Computers in Cardiology 1995, 1995

In the sympathetic outflow directed to the heart of decerebrate artificially ventilated cats, nonlinear interferences among spontaneous low frequency waves, (LF, /spl sim/0.1 Hz) related to vasomotor control, an high frequency (HF, /spl sim/0.3 Hz) from respiratory centers, and forced ventilation (at 0.3 Hz) were investigated. Various methods were tested for the simultaneous processing of sympathetic activity (Sy) and ventilation ...


Non-linear Analysis of Cardiac Autonomic Nervous Activity using Principal Dynamic Fluctuation Analysis

C. Shanthi; N. Kumaravel 2005 Annual IEEE India Conference - Indicon, 2005

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a marker of sympathovagal balance of Autonomous Nervous System (ANS). The homeostasis of the cardiovascular system is properly maintained by the efficient interaction of parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. The efficiency of such interactions is understood from the computations of the ratio of the sympathetic to parasympathetic spectral powers. This paper introduces a modified Principal ...


The sympathovagal balance during control and dobutamine stress MRI

M. Bootsma; C. A. Swenne; F. P. van Rugge; E. E. van der Wall Proceedings of Computers in Cardiology Conference, 1993

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the heart precludes dynamic exercise. Therefore, stress MRI is accomplished by pharmacological stimulation, e.g., by the synthetic adrenergic agent dobutamine. With dobutamine stress, an autonomic defense (a shift of the sympathovagal balance towards vagal predominance) is to be expected. To assess this, the authors measured heart rate (HR) and the percentage 0.07-0.14 Hz low-frequency heart ...

  • Excitable Tissue

    The nervous system includes voluntary and autonomic (sympathetic and parasympathetic) systems. This book is devoted almost entirely to the voluntary system. The system consists mostly of excitable tissue - sensory receptors, neuron cell bodies, axons, and muscle fibers. If you step on a sharp object, it stimulates sensory receptors that in turn stimulate neurons; the latter send action potentials (APs) via axons to interneurons and motoneurons in the spinal cord. The motoneurons send APs to the appropriate muscles, which contract so as to make you jump off the object. Some of the activity involves atomic dimensions and, because distances are so small, time intervals are correspondingly small. It takes a factor of about 107 to transform atomic distances into dimensions that are familiar to us. For example, most atoms and simple compounds, if magnified by 107, turn out to be 3 mm (0.12 in.) in diameter. One centimeter multiplied by 107 equals 100 km (62 mi.). In time, one second multiplied by 107 is almost equal to 4 months. Sensory receptors are usually at rest when they are unstimulated. Neuron cell bodies are at rest when they are not generating APs, while muscle fibers and axons are at rest when they are not carrying APs (that is, no APs are propagating along the muscle fiber or axon). Body tissues are bathed in fluid that has an excess of sodium and chloride ions. Internally, excitable tissue at rest has an excess of potassium and large organic negative ions. This external-internal combination forms a battery that makes the inside of the tissue 60 to 90 mV more negative than the outside. The electric field across the membrane is very high - up to 12,000 V/mm. The physiologically compatible ionic concentrations are maintained by sodium and potassium pumps.
