The purpose of this study was to examine the assumption of similarity between pressure and diameter-change waveforms in humans. We measured carotid arterial pressure and diameter change, simultaneously, in six patients with heart disease. In all patients, the carotid arterial pressure–diameter relationship could, in practice, be regarded as being linear.
