Continuous, Real-Time, Noninvasive Monitor of Blood Pressure: Peňaz Methodology Applied to the Finger

  title={Continuous, Real-Time, Noninvasive Monitor of Blood Pressure: Peňaz Methodology Applied to the Finger},
  author={Dr Robert D. Boehmer},
  journal={Journal of Clinical Monitoring},
The finger blood pressure monitor measures blood pressure continuously and noninvasively by means of a technique described by J. Peňaz. The size of the artery is measured when its internal pressure (arterial pressure) equals the external pressure. (At this point, transmural pressure equals zero and the arterial wall is said to be “unloaded.”) This unloaded condition is maintained by continuous, automatic adjustments of external pressure on the artery, adjustments that are made simultaneously… CONTINUE READING
