Abstract

A noninvasive arterial blood pressure waveform monitor was compared to standard brachial artery pressure monitoring for mean, diastolic, and systolic pressure measures and pulse-contour-derived proximal and distal arterial vascular compliance. Compliance was calculated from a modified Windkessel model of the peripheral vasculature, utilizing parameters from the pulse contour analysis of simultaneously recorded noninvasive and invasive pressure waveforms. Compliance differences were greater, with systematically higher values for noninvasively derived proximal and distal compliance than those obtained from direct brachial cannulation. This study demonstrated that pulse-contour-derived compliance can be determined from a noninvasive blood pressure waveform monitor.
