Central blood pressure
Each contraction of the left ventricle generates a pulse wave. Stiffening in the arterial vessel walls leads to early wave reflection in the systole and is associated with an increase in pressure in the central aorta. Increased central blood pressure means an unfavorable rise in cardiac afterload as well as a reduction in diastolic coronary flow and myocardial microcirculation. Other organs such as the kidneys and brain may be damaged by this.
Pulse wave velocity (PWV)
Pulse wave velocity describes the speed at which the pressure wave emitted by the left ventricle runs via the vascular tree to the periphery. The arterial stiffness is quantified using aortal pulse wave velocity (PWV) with m/s as a measuring unit.
