The effect of vibration on digital blood flow.

Abstract

The effect on digital blood flow of an acute exposure to vibration has been assessed. Vibration in the frequency range 40-200 Hz reduces digital blood flow, the effect being maximal at 120 Hz. Increasing the amplitude of vibration reduces digital blood flow. The results have implications in the formulation of industrial vibration standards and in the pathophysiology of vibration-induced white finger.
