Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV), a measure of arterial stiffness, is determined from the time taken for the arterial pulse to propagate from the carotid to the femoral artery. Propagation time is measured variously from the foot of the waveform or point of maximum upslope. We investigated whether these methods give comparable values of PWV at rest, during beta-adrenergic stimulation, and pacing-induced tachycardia. In subjects at rest (n=43), values obtained using the foot-to-foot… CONTINUE READING
