Pulse Wave Velocity
Know more about your cardiovascular health
What is Pulse Wave Velocity ?
An innovative metric used by the medical community to assess cardiovascular health
Each time your heart beats, it induces a wave along the aorta and the arterial tree. This wave leads to blood-volume changes in the vessels that expand and contract in response to these changes. Pulse Wave Velocity is the propagation speed of this wave along the arteries.
Pulse Wave Velocity is usually measured between the carotid and the femoral artery using applanation tonometry. However, this technique requires an advanced equipment and a well-trained operator.
