Basic Mechanisms of Photobiomodulation - Workshop
Saturday, April 14 | 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM | Room: Cortez AB
Participants Scientists, engineers, health care professionals, and industrial representatives interested in low level light applications.
Background Requirements Any scientist or health care provider working with energy based devices would benefit from understanding these basic light-biological interactions and how these processes may be occurring in many currently used energy based clinical modalities.
Educational Needs/Expected Learning Objectives
Basic understanding on the mechanisms involved in light/tissue interaction and the importance of wavelength selection and use of appropriate parameters and dosing in the photobiomodulation community. The session will discuss the mechanisms involved in the PBM effects observed clinically, describe appropriate wavelengths, parameters and dosing. Safety considerations and available technologies will be presented. Clinical correlations will be stressed.
Improved performance, competence and outcomes as clinicians will be better able to select appropriate patients, devices, application strategies and assessment strategies.
Strategies to address clinical problems and improved understanding will result in increased professional effectiveness, and enhanced patient safety.
