Similarity between the suprasystolic wideband external pulse wave and the first derivative of the intra-arterial pulse wave.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Wideband external pulse (WEP) monitoring, using a broad bandwidth piezoelectric sensor located over the brachial artery under the distal edge of a sphygmomanometer cuff, can be used for evaluating the contour of the arterial pressure pulse wave. The pulse contour contains valuable information relating to cardiovascular function which may be of… (More)
