SUBSTANCE: method for detecting the burn wound granulation readiness for autografting involves the granulation microcirculation by laser Doppler flowmetry to calculate an average microcirculation (M, p.u.). That is combined with combining a granulation microcirculation effectiveness index (MEI). If the MEI is more than 1.6, and M is more than 3 p.u. the reparative ability of the burn wound granulation is considered to be preserved, and the granulation appears to be ready for autodermoplasty. If MEI is less than 1.6 regardless of the value M, the reparative ability of the burn wound granulation is considered to be diminished, the wound requires additional wound cleansing and granulation incision.

EFFECT: method enables providing the higher diagnostic effectiveness of the reparative ability of the tissues, selecting the autodermoplasty time, reducing the rate of transplant rejections and cutting the treatment costs and reducing the length of staying in hospital.

SUBSTANCE: microcirculation is assessed by laser Doppler flowmetry using combined functional tests - thermal postural leg test and thermal postural arm test. Both tests involve recording a microcirculation index. The derived data are saved. An average basic microcirculation from the 10th to 110th seconds is evaluated for the leg and arm tests according to the provided formulas. That is followed by calculating an average relative microcirculation Irel1 and Irel2 during the functional leg exposure according to the presented formulas. If any of the two values Irel1, Irel2 is below standard - Irel1<3.7; Irel2<3.5, the presence of microcirculatory disorders is stated in the person being tested.

EFFECT: method is accurate, simple, enables immediately detecting systemic microcirculatory disorders in the patients suffering carbohydrate metabolism disorders on the basis of available diagnostic tests and measured microcirculation parameters; using the combined functional tests involves most regulatory mechanisms that provides obtaining the reliable microcirculation information from the patients of this category.
