BACKGROUND Previously, we validated determination of ankle-brachial index using an automatic blood pressure device. AIM To test the feasibility and accuracy of the automatic method in assessing pathological ankle-brachial indexes in routine preventive examinations. METHODS Two physicians enrolled 354 subjects (74% men) randomly for automatic ankle-brachial index measurements using an OMRON HM 722 device. Ankle-brachial index was calculated by dividing the highest value obtained at each… CONTINUE READING
