Microcirculation and Inflammation

Microcirculation and Inflammation

The microcirculation is a systemic circulation vascular channel composed of micro vessels with internal diameter of 20 m. These micro-vessels are made up of afferent arteriole, venules, capillaries, and with their cellular constituents. The microcirculation is the final destination of the cardiovascular system and is ultimately responsible for oxygen diffusion out from capillaries' red blood cells (RBC) to the parenchymal cells, where oxygen is supplied to meet the energy requirements of the tissue cells in support of their proper function and aid in having conducted activities involving tissue nourishment and perfusion.

Inflammation is defined as a series of localised reactions that occur in the affected area, such as redness, swelling, stiffness, and a rise in temperature, which is the result of a local defence mechanism designed to avoid invaders or foreign pathogens from attempting to fight by circulating Neutrophils and leukocytes (WBCs), increasing blood flow, and so on. There are two types of inflammation: acute and chronic. Acute inflammation includes sore throat, swelling, illness, physical trauma, and other signs that resolve within a few hours, however persistent inflammation can lead to cancer, arthritis, asthma, Crohn's disease, and some other diseases. Certain inflammatory diseases, such as inflammatory arthritis and psoriasis, could be of hereditary origin, culminating in autoimmune inflammatory disorders. Inflammatory mediators are managed via anti-inflammatory treatment. Steroids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications may be used in anti-inflammatory drugs (Aspirin, Ibuprofen, diclofenac).
