Thermic MethodsThermic Methods • heat can be given to the body – positive thermotherapy , or can be taken away – negative thermotherapy • effects: hyperaemia, reflex vasodilatation, spasmolytic and analgetic effects, myorelaxation Thermotherapeutical methods use: 1. conduction of heat -packs, compresses (cold/warm, dry (45 -55°C)/moist, peloid, paraffin) 2. convection of heat 1.

Thermotherapeutic applications of ultrasound • diathermy and micromasage of the tissue, most of the heat is created on the border between fat and muscle tissue, and bet- ween skin and muscle • 1/3 of absorbed ultrasound is transformed to the heat • short wave (27 MHz) resistive connection • ultra short wave (434 MHz) condenser connection • microwave (2400 MHz) inductive connection

Light MethodsMethods 1.Phototherapy Heliotherapy – treatment by sun radiation Therapy with visible light – blue part of the spectrum – therapy of icterus (yellow coloured skin- in newborns) 2. Photodynamic Therapy Photosensitive drug is given into the body and then activated by visible or laser lights while rea- cting with oxygen. It results in disorder of tumor metabolism, and in tumor is destroyed. It do- es not affect DNA.
  16. 16. 16 3. Ultraviolet light therapyUltraviolet light therapy 4. Laser radiation therapy Types:UV-A (λ = 315 - 400nm), UV-B (280 -315nm),UV-C (100 - 280nm) •Source: Mercury lamp •Biological effects: Early erythema. Delayed pigmentation (within 48 – 72 hours). Production of vitamine D, Killing efect on bacteries, therefore it is used for disinfection of surgical and biopsy room at hospitals •light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation •consists of 3 main parts: effective substance, excitation device, optic resonator •types: solid/liquid/gas/ semiconductor, continual/pulse, soft/hard
  17. 17. 17 Principle of laser: atom of a substance reaches an exci- tation due to a drift of electrones from basic to higher energetic levels. Laser radiation is produced by massive replacement of electrons back to their basic levels, under amplification by optic resonator a/a/ LowLow PPowerower LLasersasers • soft – lasers with a maximal power of 500 mW • Treatment effects: analgetic, anti- inflamatory, biostimulating • local application – skin, the lasers of a visible light spectrum are used • deep application – muscles, bones, the lasers with longer wavelengths in IR spectrum are used,as well.
  18. 18. 18 bb// HighHigh PPowerower LLasersasers Solid YAG laser- used for photocoagulation of retinal ablation – (emits radiation in green part of light spectrum, power supply up to 1,5 W) Excimer laser – for therapy of myopy and astig- matism.This laser emits UV radiation causing pho- tochemical reaction when connecting with eye and thus takes off the corneal tissue (1 impulse remo- ves about 0.25 mm of cornea)-works as a „contac- tless“ scalpel YAG laser

Methods ofMethods of IonizingIonizing RRadiationadiation • Therapy by nuclear (α, β, γ, neutrons) and non-nuclear (X- ray) radiations • Principle of effect: direct effect -production of instabile electric charged particles (cations, anions) in cells or non-direct effect - creation of reactive radicals because water radiolysis Comparison of stochastic (non depending on dosis) and deterministic (depending on dosis) effects of ionizing radiation Radiation geometry: intensity of radiation decreases with square of the length
