Abstract

To compensate for the wide range of reported arterial pulse transmission velocity trends, a new algorithm has been designed to avoid many of the common problems associated with this non-invasive measurement. This adaptive method is fully automated, requiring no user input. A study of patients compared this algorithm with the common point-to-point velocity method, recording velocity trends with systolic hypertension, age and drug therapy. A positive correlation between PWV (pulse wave velocity) and all three variables has been observed.
