Summary:
In this study, electrical impedance plethysmograph was used to measure the nonlinear elastic properties of the leg arteries. Two methods were used. In method one, a pressure cuff was wrapped around the lower leg and the recordings were made from under the cuff. Also a second set of recordings were made at a site distal to the cuff, to determine the attenuation of blood pressure pulse by the cuff at cuff pressures above diastolic. In method 2 an Inverter was used and recordings were made from the same segment. Also recordings were made from the upper arm at the heart level to define the blood pressure pulse, that causes the volume change in the leg arteries. A wide range of pressures were used and V-P and compliance curves were calculated with both the methods. In order to improve the accuracy and reduce operator errors, a personal computer based data acquisition and processing system was developed.
