The augmentation index for the three groups weren't different, but the traditional Pygmies' shorter height suggests their atherosclerosis risks are lower than the others.
76) * Pulse Wave Velocity * Augmentation Index * Central Systolic Blood Pressure.
From these waveforms they derived the aortic waveform and calculated the augmentation pressure (AP) index and augmentation index corrected at 75 beats per minute (Alx@75).
The HEM-9000AI is the world's first monitor to sense Augmentation Index (AI) automatically from the late systolic blood pressure in the radial artery (r-SBP2) -the blood pressure reading at the peak of wave reflection measured at the wrist- using a pulse-wave sensor developed completely by Omron.
From the pressure recordings, myocardial performance index (MPI), isovolumetric relaxation time (IVRT), isovolumetric contraction time (IVCT), ejection time (ET), augmentation wave amplitude (AW), augmentation wave time (AWT) and augmentation index (AI) were measured manually.
In addition to providing (1) the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive measure of Endothelial Function, now also features (2) Augmentation Index (measuring arterial stiffness) and (3) Heart Rate Variability (offering a window onto the Autonomic Nervous System), as well as (4) leading Risk Score calculators (Framingham, Reynolds and SCORE) and (5) an integrated web-based platform, EndoCloud, to provide seamless and efficient patient diagnosis information transfer in a timely manner.
Pulse-wave velocity, a measure of arterial stiffness, improved significantly over baseline in both groups, with no diet-specific effect; another measure of stiffness, augmentation index, did not change in either group.
The HEM-9000AI is the world's first monitor to sense Augmentation Index (AI) automatically from the late systolic blood pressure in the radial artery (r-SBP2) -- the blood pressure reading at the peak of wave reflection measured at the wrist -- using a pulse-wave sensor developed completely by Omron.
