Vicorder Pulse Wave Velocity Research

Aortic stiffness, an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk and all-cause mortality, can be estimated non-invasively by measuring carotid to femoral (aortic) pulse wave velocity (aPWV). The Vicorder device has been developed to measure aPWV with little operator training in a non-intrusive manner. The aim of this study was to assess the repeatability of aPWV measured with the Vicorder device On the basis of the findings of this study, we suggest a standard method of distance calculation for the Vicorder path length that is representative of anatomical arterial path length, consistent with...

VICORDER® Provides Non-Invasive Peripheral Blood Pressures

The Vicorder provides non-invasive measurement of peripheral and central blood pressures in combination with haemodynamic parameters and arterial stiffness. Arterial pulse waveforms are recorded using PVR (pulse volume recording) measurements from a standard vascular cuff. The waveforms can be acquired in up to two sites simultaneously to provide pulse transit time (TT) and pulse wave velocity (PWV) measurements for the assessment of arterial stiffness. Typically the PWV is measured between the carotid and femoral arteries in a quick and highly reproducible technique that is operator independent....

The Vicorder Edges out SphygmoCor

Author information 1Academic Vascular Surgical Unit, Hull York Medical School and University of Hull, Hull, UK. yousef.shahin@yahoo.co.uk Abstract To assess the reliability and reproducibility of the Vicorder's carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) measurements in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and to compare between cfPWV measurements obtained using the Vicorder with those obtained using the SphygmoCor device as a reference. Some 30 patients with PAD (23 men, mean age 64.9±7.5) underwent cfPWV measurement twice by a single investigator during one visit...

Primary Non-Invasive Test for The Diagnosis of Peripheral Arterial Disease | Vicorder

According to the Oxford Journal the primary non-invasive test for the diagnosis of Lower Extremity Artery Disease otherwise Peripheral Arterial Disease is the Ankle Brachial Index. For its measurement a 10 -12 CM sphygmomanometer cuff placed just above the ankle and a hand held Doppler Instrument ( 5 - 10 MHz) to measure the pressure of the posterior and anterior tibial arteries of each foot are required. http://eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org/content/32/22/2851.full.pdf   The Vicorder's Key features and 8 MHz Doppler make for the perfect and affordable solution for today's vascular diagnostics...
