Aim: Sphygmocardiography via applanation tonometry is a non-invasive, bedside technology which utilises tonometric analysis of the radial artery pulse wave and measurement of peripheral arterial blood pressure (BP) to derive a central arterial pulse wave, central arterial BP and related indices. The present study was designed to determine: (1) the inter-operator variability in measurements obtained using this technique; (2) the relationship between measured peripheral arterial BP and derived… CONTINUE READING
