OBJECTIVE Measurement of finger artery pressure with Finapres offers noninvasive continuous blood pressure, which, however, differs from brachial artery pressure. Generalized waveform filtering and level correction may convert the finger artery pressure waveform to a brachial waveform. An upper-arm cuff return-to-flow measurement may be used to calibrate the blood pressure on an individual basis. We tested these corrective methods as implemented in the Finometer device. METHODS Intrabrachial… CONTINUE READING
