THE #1 SOLUTION TO MEASURE ARTERIAL STIFFNESS
Arteriograph: using pulse wave analysis in the COVID-19 pandemic
Read the interview with Professor Dr Martin Middeke: Specialist for internal medicine with 30 years of experience in hypertension research and head of the Hypertension Centre Munich.
The non-invasive methods for measuring pulse wave velocity (PWVao), aortic central blood pressure (SBPao) and augmentation (AIXao) of central systolic blood pressure provide a novel basis for improved cardiovascular risk stratification, differential therapeutic considerations and improved patient care. Numerous studies show that pulse wave velocity as a biomarker of arterial vascular stiffness is a strong independent predictor of morbidity and mortality.
The innovative non-invasive measuring system Arteriograph (Tensiomed Ltd., Budapest, Hungary) can determine these parameters and, using a special pulse wave analysis, make individual statements about the vessel properties (function, arterial age).
