Quantitative analysis of the arterial pressure pulse waveform recorded by applanation tonometry of the radial artery can track NO (nitric oxide)-mediated modulation of arterial smooth muscle tone. The changes in pressure pulse waveform morphology result from pulse wave reflection arising predominantly from smaller arteries and arterioles. Employing Doppler… CONTINUE READING
