Abstract

In this paper, near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and jumping optical tweezers were used to measure the tissue oxygenation and the elasticity of erythrocytes, respectively. The correlation between tissue oxygenation induced by arterial occlusion test (AOT) and the mechanical properties of individual erythrocytes from a blood sample obtained after AOT was studied. The experimental results show a linear correlation between the oxygenation signal caused by AOT and the elasticity of erythrocytes.
