7.8. Cardio-vascular pathology.
Having specific favourable effects to the organism MIL-therapy is indicated in cardio-vascular pathology as a part of a curative complex. Due to its analgesic, anti-ischemic and anti-arrhythmic effects MIL-therapy stabilizes hemodynamic indexes, cardiac function, elevates electric myocardial stability and tolerance to physical loading in 88% of patients on average. MIL-therapy gradually may lead to the reduction of prescribed medicine doses till their complete cancellation.
During MIL-procedure a patient lays down on his back or sits. The terminal (LILR frequency 5 Hz, LED radiation power 50 mWt) is put subcutaneously on the breast to the following zones (Fig.22):
1 - the projection of apical bunt (exposure 2 min);
2 - the second intercostal space to the right of the sternum (2 min);
3 - the second intercostal space to the left of the sternum (2 min);
4 - paravertebrally to the right and to the left ( level ThIII-IV) (1 min on each zone);
5 - the middle third of the sternum (1 min);
6 - paravertebrally at the level of lower angle of the left scapula (1 min);
7 - the area of the left carotid (1 min);
8 - to the right and to the left of the 3rd neck vertebrae (0,5 min)
Fig.22. Zones for MIL-irradiation in treating cardio-vascular diseasesRhythm disturbances. Hypertension
For rhythm disturbances a combination of zones 1, 2, 3, 6 and 7 is recommended (Fig.22). The course consists of 10 daily procedures.
For treating initial stages of hypertension and symptomatic arterial hypertension MIL-irradiation is done to zones 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and at the level of the 3rd neck vertebrae paravertebrally on both sides (zones 8) for 0,5 min.
Stable angina on exertion (I-IV functional class), angina at rest (first attack, progressive angina), extrasystolic arrhythmia
The terminal is put alternatively (Fig. 21) to zones 1, 3, 6 with exposure 2 min on each zone, impulse frequency 5 Hz, LED radiation power 90 mWt. The course consists of 12 procedures performed every other day.
