Measurement of central systolic blood pressure by pulse volume plethysmography with a noninvasive blood pressure monitor.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Central systolic blood pressure (SBP) can be estimated by an oscillometric method developed from a pulse volume plethysmography (PVP) device. The present study applied this novel method to a noninvasive blood pressure monitor (NBPM). METHODS We enrolled 50 patients (37 men, age range 30-84 years) referred for cardiac catheterization.
