Abstract : These experiments made use of pulsed carbon dioxide lasers to irradiate the flexor side skin of people's forearms. Observations were made of the occurrence rate of cutaneous erythema and the appearance times for erythema. Cutaneous erythema occurrence rates and irradiation doses present linear relationships. When doses are large, cutaneous erythema occurrence rates are high. When irradiation doses are low, erythema occurrence rates are low. MRD5O irradiation dosage was obtained as approximately 0.4J/cm2.
