Equations of Htanaka et al for Estimating Brachial-Ankle Pulse Wave Velocity (baPWV) Index

Specialty:

Cardiology
Emergency Medicine
Pulmonology

Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

The baPWV index can provide insight into a patient’s inherent arterial stiffness. Hatanaka et al reported 2 equations for predicting a patient’s brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) index. These values can be used for evaluating a patient’s measured value. The authors are from Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan.
