We have investigated muscle oxygenation state during exercise using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).

We have investigated the forearm skin color of patients with chronic renal failure, heart disease or shock using spectrophotometer. The relationship between acute pathophysiological changes and skin color has been studied.ResearchAreasMedicine, dentistry, and pharmacyKeyword□COPD■muscle oxygenation□exercise■skin colorRelatedresearchSDGSkeletal muscle dysfunction in patients with COPD; Skin color and pathophysiological changeProfessorTomoko KutsuzawaUndergraduate School of MedicineFaculty of NursingMy main research field is occupational health nursing.
