Challenges in automated estimation of capillary refill time in dogs
Capillary refill time (CRT) is a part of the cardiorespiratory examination in dogs. Changes in CRT can reflect pathological conditions like shock or anemia. Visual CRT estimation has low repeatability; therefore, optical ...
Biophotonics in veterinary medicine: the first steps toward clinical translation
In this paper, we analyzed the current situation and the potential of biophotonics and biomedical optics in veterinary medicine. Promising optical techniques such as optical coherence tomography, pulse oximeter, and ...
Photoplethysmography in dogs and cats: a selection of alternative measurement sites for a pet monitor
(IOP Publishing, 2019-01-22)
Objective: Photoplethysmography (PPG) is an increasingly popular health and well-being tool for monitoring heart rate and oxygen saturation. Due to the pigmentation and hairiness of dogs and cats, a pulse oximeter is ...
Clinical evaluation of automated capillary refill time estimation in dogs and cats
In this study, we clinically evaluated a pulse oximeter-based device for automated capillary refill time (CRT) estimation in dogs and cats. CRT can reveal conditions like shock or anemia in dogs and cats. However, visual ...
Photoplethysmography for bovine heat detection: the preliminary results
(International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), 2020-02-14)
In this study, we applied photoplethysmography (PPG) as an alternative, convenient, and affordable method for bovine heat detection. Heat detection is an essential part of effective herd reproduction management. Currently, ...
Skimager for the objective erythema estimation in atopic dogs
(International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), 2020-02-19)
In this study, the severity of canine skin erythema was assessed objectively for the first time. Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common canine inflammatory and pruritic skin disease associated with an allergic reaction to ...
