Skin Anatomy and Physiology
ABSTRACT If plastic surgeons are to provide state-of-the-art care in the techniques of skin rejuvenation and minimally invasive treatments
for aging, a thorough understanding of skin, anatomy, and physiology is required. With the changing population demographics,
the plastic surgeon must also be knowledgeable about ethnic variations in skin anatomy and physiology. The changes that occur
with aging skin, inherent developmental disorders, and development of skin cancers are complex. This chapter provides a practical
guide to the understanding of skin and its application to clinical conditions.

ABSTRACT: Using continuous wave, 94-GHz millimeter-wave interferometry, a signal representing chest wall motion can be obtained that contains both the heart rate and respiration patterns of a human subject. These components have to be separated from each other in the received signal. Our method was to use the quadrature and in-phase components of the signal, after removing the mean of each, to find the phase, unwrap it, and convert it to a displacement measurement. Using this, the power spectrum was examined for peaks, which corresponded to the heart rate and respiration rate. The displacement waveform of the chest was also analyzed for discrete heartbeats using a novel wavelet decomposition technique.IEEE transactions on bio-medical engineering 02/2011; 58(6):1671-7.
