Arterial Stiffness

Assessment of arterial stiffness in hypertension: comparison of oscillometric (Arteriograph), piezoelectronic (Complior) and tonometric (SphygmoCor) techniques. Noor A Jatoi, Azra Mahmud, Kathleen Bennett, John Feely Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Trinity College Centre for Health Sciences and Hypertension Clinic, St. James's Hospital, Dublin, Ireland. Journal of hypertension (impact factor: 4.02). 10/2009; 27(11):2186-91. DOI:10.1097/HJH.0b013e32833057e8 Source: PubMed ABSTRACT Arterial stiffness, measured as aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV), and wave reflection, measured as augmentation index (AIx), are independent predictors for total and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to compare a new device
