OBJECTIVES Noninvasive estimation of central blood pressure (BP) from radial artery pressure waveforms is increasingly applied. We investigated the impact of radial artery waveform calibration on central BP assessment and calculated pressure amplification, with focus on the one-third rule used to estimate mean arterial BP (MAP). METHODS Pressure waveforms were noninvasively measured at the radial and carotid arteries in 1873 individuals (age 45.8+/-6.1 years). Radial and carotid artery… CONTINUE READING
