"OVERCOMING THE LIMITATIONS OF
CONVENTIONAL HEMODYNAMIIC MONITORING"

Chronic Vascular Disease

PPV measurements were shown to vary with the chronic changes in peripheral flow expected in patients with atherosclerotic vascular disease. Fourteen older men with atherosclerosis (age=60±6y) had decreased PPV (p<0.005) compared to healthy younger controls. In the subject group, PPV was 41.2% smaller than the control group (p<0.005).
