OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine arterial elasticity in normotensive and hypertensive individuals. BACKGROUND In addition to blood pressure, other parameters serve as markers for vascular disease. Arterial elasticity is one parameter that can be determined by a modified Windkessel model of the circulation. This model estimates, from a computerized pulse contour analysis, the proximal (capacitive) elasticity of the large arteries and the distal (reflective) elasticity of the… CONTINUE READING
