Comparison of Techniques Used for Measuring Arterial Stiffness Dissertation

… ¶ … Measuring Arterial Stiffness

Arterial Stiffness

Intermittent blood flow converts to steady blood flow due to arteries cushioning the pulsation. The expanding and contracting of the aorta promote steady forward flow of blood. Figure 1 show the design and muscle type of the arterial wall.

Figure 1 (Arnett, 2001)

When arterial stiffness becomes increased, the pressure of the systolic and diastolic readings increases. As we age, our blood pressure gets higher in regards to the systolic blood pressure (SBP), the diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and the pulse pressure (PP). High blood pressure can lead to or cause a heart attack or stroke. Stiffening of the arteries in addition to build up of calcium and plaque are some of the major causes of cardiovascular disease.….
