Arterial stiffness influences the contour of the digital pressure pulse wave.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Journal of hypertension
Wearable monitors for measuring vital signs such as blood pressure will greatly impact the medical field. This work presents a millimeter-wave, radar-based system for performing accurate measurements ...
Aortic stiffness, as assessed by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity, is an independent predictor of future events in individuals with hypertension. Recent data suggest a predictive role of estimated ...
Pulse wave velocity (PWV), a measure of arterial stiffness, and intima-media thickening (IMT), a measure of early atherosclerosis, are intermediate markers of cardiovascular disease which are predicti...
Hemodialysis patients have premature arterial stiffness, and the relationship between pulse wave velocity (PWV) and blood pressure (BP) may be different than in other hypertensives. Previous studies i...
The angle of arterial tapering increases with aging, and the geometrical changes of the aorta may cause an increase in central arterial pressure and stiffness. The impact of tapering has been largely ...
A multicenter prospective registry planned to recruit more than 100 000 patients 50 years old and older was carried out in China. This primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the ass...
There is growing evidence that central blood pressure is a better predictor of hypertensive end-organ damage and cardiovascular outcome than routine brachial readings. The investigators a...
Diabetic patients show an increased prevalence of non dipping arterial pressure pattern, target organ damage and elevated arterial stiffness. These alterations are associated with increase...
There is growing evidence that central blood pressure is a better predictor of hypertensive end-organ damage and cardiovascular outcome than routine brachial readings. We aimed to evaluat...
This Registry is an investigator-initiated, international, multicenter, observational, prospective study aiming at: i) evaluating non-invasive 24-h ambulatory blood pressure and arterial s...
Evaluation of the contour of the PULSE waves which vary in different parts of the circulation and depend on physiological as well as pathophysiological conditions of the individual.
The blood pressure in the ARTERIES. It is commonly measured with a SPHYGMOMANOMETER on the upper arm which represents the arterial pressure in the BRACHIAL ARTERY.
Biological actions and events that support the functions of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM.
Persistently high systemic arterial BLOOD PRESSURE. Based on multiple readings (BLOOD PRESSURE DETERMINATION), hypertension is currently defined as when SYSTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently greater than 140 mm Hg or when DIASTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently 90 mm Hg or more.
A specialty concerned with the nursing care of patients suffering from disorders of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM as well as those identified as at risk for adverse cardiac or vascular events.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
Vascular relates to blood vessels (Oxford Medical Dictionary) and can be used to describe the supply of blood, a disease affecting the blood vessels or molecules associated with these structures. For example, <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->atherosclerosis ...
