Thomas-Jean, F., Obeid, H., Boutouyrie, P., Hallab, M., Coucke, P., Danchin, N., & Pannier, B. (09/2016). [PP. 11.22] ARTERIAL STIFFNESS RECORDINGS WITH POPMETRE (R) IN A GENERAL PRIMARY CARE POPULATION: THE IPC COHORT. Journal of Hypertension, 34, e183.
From September to December 2015, 332 subjects aged from 18 to 95 years had a standard health check-up at the IPC Center (Paris, France) including finger to toe pulse wave velocity recording with pOpmetre®, performed by nurses
Conclusion: The very simple and quick measurement of finger to toe arterial stiffness with the pOpmètre® device, can be performed by nurses during a tight time schedule.It provides values within aortic Reference value ranges.It appears as a promising substitute to reference techniques with the advantage of simplicity for assessing PWV during standard health check-up.
