Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Ischemic preconditioning will be induced by brief periods of limb ischemia (5mins) due to limb occlusion using a blood pressure cuff inflated to suprasystolic pressure and followed by 5 minutes of reperfusion for 4 cycles. This protocol of 4 cycles of occlusion and resotration of flow will be performed daily for 1 week in this study.
