required the use of a suitable instrument to magnify the oscillations produced in the cuff by the pulsations of the artery.
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Screening -- An oscillometry machine detects plaque build-up which occurs as the arteries in the legs narrow and harden (atherosclerosis).
Arterial Stiffness Index (ASI) Screening -- Also measured through automated oscillometry, ASI screening results provide specific data regarding arterial hardening, missed heartbeats, arrhythmias, blood pressure, and pulse patterns.
also uses advanced computer oscillometry capable of measuring the stiffness of one's arteries (Arterial Stiffness Index or ASI), a very accurate predictor of heart disease.
Impulse Oscillometry data were collected in 2006-2008 at Western Sky Medical Research Clinic from 112 Anglo and Hispanic asthmatic and non-asthmatic children residing in the El Paso, Texas area.
Impulse Oscillometry is a patient-friendly test that has been proven to be more sensitive than Spirometry in clinical settings.
