Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS)-derived measures of tissue oxygen saturation (StO2) have been recently shown to significantly correlate with the widely used method for noninvasively assessing vascular endothelial function, flow-mediated dilation (FMD). The purpose of this study was to examine the intraday and interday reliability of the reperfusion slope of StO2 (slope 2 StO2) and compare it to FMD Ultrasound-derived FMD was quantified following 5 min of distal cuff occlusion of the popliteal… CONTINUE READING
