AIMS Continuous noninvasive blood pressure measurement by photoplethysmography has been regularly used in the experimental paradigm of angiotensin challenges, applied to the phase I clinical testing of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor antagonists. This work aims to evaluate the performance of this measurement method, in terms of reliability, reproducibility and dependence on technical settings. METHODS Data have been gathered from 13 clinical studies on… CONTINUE READING
