Between these two Nexfin measurements, the pulse wave velocity and augmentation index profiles in the supine position was estimated using the Arteriograph (TensioMed, Budapest, Hungary) (16).
A) Mean pulse wave velocity assessed by the Arteriograph device per age category in the total group and in different ethnic groups, Paramaribo, Suriname, 2012; (B) Mean augmentation index assessed by the Arteriograph device per age category in the total group and in different ethnic groups, Paramaribo, Suriname, 2012.
19 The volunteers, who took a rest in the supine position at least five minutes, were evaluated by the commercially available TensioMedTM Arteriograph (TensioMed Ltd, Hungary) to calculate these parameters.
20 AIxao-75, known as a percentage of the height of a reflected wave relative to the incident wave, was also determined automatically by the Arteriograph.
Peripheral systolic/diastolic BP and the central aortic systolic blood pressure (SBPao, representing the actual cardiac pressure load) were measured using an Arteriograph v.
We thank nurse, Maria Backlund and associate professor, Bo Carlberg at the Center of Clinical Research, Umea University Hospital, for performing the Arteriograph measurements and for valuable help with interpretation of the results.
Routine arteriography is justified in multiligament injuries to the knee by the high incidence of popliteal artery injury, given the potentially devastating consequences of a delay in diagnosis and the relatively low morbidity of an arteriograph," Dr.
