Photomodification of Blood Using Low-Intensity Optical Radiation
This book explores the molecular mechanism of low-intensity optical radiation action on patients undergoing phototherapy, the use of which has been expanding in recent years. The effect of phototherapy on blood oxygenation, as well as on metabolic processes, is studied here using optical radiation of various wavelengths. The book evaluates changes of blood coagulation, lipid exchange and glucose content, and considers the laws of blood photomodification and the main stages of organism photoactivation. Special attention is also given to the susceptibility of individual patients to blood irradiation and the methods for its control.
Professor Galina Zalesskaya is a former Chief Researcher of the Laboratory of Infrared Spectroscopy at the Institute of Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, where she worked until 2019. She received her PhD and habilitation degrees in Physical and Mathematical Sciences from the Institute of Physics in 1969 and 1987, respectively. Her research interests are in the fields of molecular spectroscopy of complex organic molecules, laser-tissue interactions, and applications of lasers in biology and medicine. She is the author of one book and 160 journal articles.
Professor Natalya Mitkovskaya received her PhD and DMSc from the Belarusian State Medical University in 1991 and 2004 respectively. She is currently Head of the Department of Cardiology and Internal Diseases at this institution. Her work covers a wide range of problems connected to internal diseases, including the study of cardiology metabolic syndrome in different categories of patients, as well as the treatment of cardiovascular diseases using physiotherapy with low-intensity optical radiation.
