Direct arterial pressure monitoring from the dorsalis pedis artery.

Abstract

The arteria dorsalis pedis, when clearly palpable, is a suitable artery for direct arterial blood pressure monitoring. The systolic pressure and the pulse pressure are likely higher in the dorsalis pedis artery when compared to the radial artery but there is no clinically significant difference in mean pressures. In plethysmographic studies it was found… (More)
