The resting peripheral volume pulse wave of 44 subjects within three age categories (30-39, 40-49, 50) has been characterized using a novel algorithm for the automated determination of a mean pulse function. The contour of this resting mean pulse has been analyzed with regard to its systolic and diastolic characteristics. Previously described indices of… CONTINUE READING
