The significance of parameters of the central hemodynamic is based upon their strong association with left ventricular hypertrophy and target organ damage at the heart. Noninvasive, auscultatory/ oscillometric and therefore easy applicable measurements of the central hemodynamic such as presented by the Schiller BR-102 plus PWA device implicate highly promising potential for research and daily clinical praxis for improved cardiovascular risk assessment on the population level. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the validity of the central and peripheral blood pressure and central arterial stiffness measured with the device BR-102 plus PWA from Schiller (Schiller AG, Baar, Switzerland).
The proposed study is an open, monocentric cross-sectional research study for the evaluation of the validity of the central and peripheral blood pressure and central arterial stiffness measured with the device BR-102 plus PWA from Schiller (Schiller AG, Baar, Switzerland). For that purpose measurement of the respective parameters in cardiovascular disease free individuals will be compared with validated devices and the agreement between the devices will be statistically analyzed. Central blood pressure and central arterial stiffness are clinically increasingly meaningful parameters of the cardiovascular system that allow improved, early cardiovascular risk stratification. The significance of parameters of the central hemodynamic is based upon their strong association with left ventricular hypertrophy and target organ damage at the heart. Noninvasive, auscultatory/ oscillometric and therefore easy applicable measurements of the central hemodynamic such as presented by the Schiller BR-102 plus PWA device implicate highly promising potential for research and daily clinical praxis for improved cardiovascular risk assessment on the population level.

Arterial stiffness is an important marker of cardiovascular risk. It is measured by pulse wave velocity. The reference device to measure pulse wave velocity is the Sphygmocor which uses ap...
A fall in blood pressure (hypotension) occurs in one third of spinal anesthetics administered to pregnant patients undergoing cesarean delivery. However, predicting which patients will ex...
This study aims to evaluate the reliability of measurements of arterial stiffness (pulse wave velocity (PWV), pulse wave contour analysis (PWA), central augmentation index (AIx) and pulse ...
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...
The purpose of this study is to predict the outcome of peripheral revascularization surgery by use of a new technology developed by our team, Pulse Wave Velocity imaging (PWVI), which has ...
Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity is associated with arterial stiffness in major elastic arteries, and predicts future cardiovascular events. However, little is known about carotid-femoral pulse wav...
Pulse wave analysis (PWA) over the carotid artery is one of the available methodological options to obtain central arterial pressures and other important hemodynamic parameters. However, limited data ...
Pulse wave velocity measurements are an indicator of arterial stiffness and possible cardiovascular dysfunction. It is usually calculated by measuring the pulse transit time (PTT) over a known d...
Valuable information about cardiovascular system can be derived from the shape of aortic pulse wave being the result of reciprocal interaction between heart and vasculature. Pressure profiles in ascen...
Arterial stiffness has predictive value for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Local artery stiffness can provide insight on CVD pathology and may be useful for diagnosis and prognosis. However, current me...
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.
Methods for performing three-dimensional measurement and motion analysis using stereoscopic radiographs.
Use of a pulse of X-rays or fast electrons to generate free radicals for spectroscopic examination.
An electrochemical technique for measuring the current that flows in solution as a function of an applied voltage. The observed polarographic wave, resulting from the electrochemical response, depends on the way voltage is applied (linear sweep or differential pulse) and the type of electrode used. Usually a mercury drop electrode is used.
The analysis of a chemical substance by inserting a sample into a carrier stream of reagent using a sample injection valve that propels the sample downstream where mixing occurs in a coiled tube, then passes into a flow-through detector and a recorder or other data handling device.
