The study of the pulse using the technique of applanation tonometry is undergoing a resurgence with the development of new computerized equipment. We aim here to present a critical review of the uses, potential uses, strengths and weaknesses of the technique of applanation tonometry for the assessment of augmentation index and pulse wave velocity. We will review the technique of applanation tonometry, the physiological factors affecting pulse wave velocity and pulse wave analysis, the changes… CONTINUE READING
