Because of methodological variation in previous studies, age-associated changes in peak limb vascular conductance (VC(peak); a functional index of arterial structure) and its determinants remain poorly defined. The objectives of this study were to describe and compare age-associated changes in peak forearm and calf conductance across a broad age range and to identify physiological characteristics that are predictive of variation in limb-specific VC(peak). Peak conductance (plethysmographic flow… CONTINUE READING
