The researchers also found that in midday sleepers pulse wave velocity levels were 11% lower and left atrium diameter was 5% smaller.
These findings indicate that dietary interventions, such as blueberry powder, may be more effective for the peripheral arteries than central arteries but it is the pulse wave velocity in the peripheral arteries that may be more predictive of the progression of prehypertension to hypertension.
Based on the above derivation, we can find that the equivalent cylindrical wave equation and plane wave equation have different property profile, but their wave velocity distributions are the same.
This method is commonly used to determine compression and shear wave velocity versus depth.
Pulse wave velocity (PWV) and carotid intima- media thickness (IMT) are well accepted noninvasive surrogate markers of subclinical atherosclerosis.
Arterial stiffness and endothelial dysfunction can be determined using pulse wave velocity, and, brachial and aortic augmentation index, respectively.
Dynamic MOE of logs calculated from the stress wave velocity measured for logs was compared with static and dynamic MOE and MOR measured for the lumber.
Results from a substudy showed more improvement than lisinopril in arterial compliance with omapatrilat, as indicated by a decreased pulse wave velocity (a measure of blood vessel stiffness that indicates a reduction in the heart's workload).
Stress wave velocity was measured in five different experiments with a Fakopp Microsecond Timer to investigate stress wave trends.
At the same time, due to the fast amplification of the wave velocity, the wave propagates to the deep water region during a fixed time.
Using a non-invasive measure of pulse wave velocity, Davis discovered that children with a greater body mass index, more body fat and less endurance had stiffer central arteries compared to leaner and fitter children.
