However, reflection heavily dominates, and arterial pulses produce merely small reductions in detected light (1%-2%).
The rhythmic waves in this case might have represented the arterial pulse at the temple--that is, the ENG may have functioned as impedance plethysmography of the artery.
34] These changes may result from a decrease in cerebrovascular resistance and cerebral arteriolar vasodilation that lead to increased transfer of the arterial pulse to the ICP waveform.
These patients were excluded in the final analysis as aortic stenosis and irregular pulse are known to affect the arterial pulse characteristics (6,7).
07), which is improved when compared with the first version (5), uses an analysis of peripheral arterial pulse waves to calculate CO, averaging 20-second windows over two minutes.
It has been hypothesised that the increase in PEEP and the subsequent increase in intrathoracic pressure and reduced cardiac output may cause a dampening of the arterial pulse wave, such that the sensor has difficulty determining an arterial wave from a venous wave.
