About the Arteriograph

The complex arterial function (stiffness) measurement with Arteriograph is as simple as an upper arm blood pressure measurement.This innovative device measures all the relevant arterial function parameters such as aortic pulse wave velocity (PWVao), augmentation index (Aix) and central blood pressure (SBPao) values simultaneously with the TM peripheral blood pressure. Arteriograph provides an easy, fast, accurate and user-independent method for assessing vascular age. With use of a simple, upper-arm cuff, the device is capable of recording central hemodynamic changes. By inflating the cuff to suprasystolic pressure the brachial artery becomes occluded. This leads to the major advantage of the system: the brachial flow is stopped, therefore the brachial wall characteristics are excluded (no significant wall movement), consequently the gained information relate to the systematic circulation. For calculating arterial function parameters the recorded pulse waveform is analyzed and the characteristic points of the first and reflected waves are determined. The true aortic length is estimated with the jugulumsymphysis distance ( Jug-Sy) , by which the calculation of PWVao is enabled.

About the Arteriograph24

Its unique technology enables this device to measure all arterial function parameters simultaneously for 24 hours. Beyond the traditional blood pressure values Arteriograph24 provides aortic Pulse Wave Velocity (PWVao), Augmentation Index (Aix aortic, Aix brachial) and central systolic blood pressure (SBPao) data. With use of a simple, upper-arm cuff, the device is capable of recording central hemodynamic changes. By inflating the cuff to suprasystolic pressure the brachial artery becomes occluded. This leads to the major advantage of the system: the brachial flow is stopped, therefore the brachial wall characteristics are excluded (no significant wall movement), consequently the gained information relate to the systematic circulation. For calculating arterial function parameters the recorded pulse waveform is analyzed and the characteristic points of the first and reflected waves are determined. The true aortic length is estimated with the jugulumsymphysis distance ( Jug-Sy) , by which the calculation of PWVao is enabled. Arteriograph24 is a special combination of a 24 hour ABPM and a professional, stateof the art technology for measuring vascular age (stiffness), incorporating all the best advantages of both techniques. It reveals the day and night-time changes of the peripheral and central hemodynamic parameters in order to achive the most accurate vascular age assessment, and to monitor the effect of different drugs. The measured data can be transferred, stored and analyzed on a PC allowing a complete evaluation of arterial function (stiffness).

Company details

How was the Arteriograph Created?

During the daily medical work, arterial function (stiffness) parameters were not available, due to the lack of adequate measuring option.

The blood pressure measured on the upper arm (brachial blood pressure) and on the aorta (central blood pressure) are significantly different.
The pulse pressure wave generated by the left ventricle runs through the aorta and is reflected from the bifurcation.
If the aortic wall is stiffened, the Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV) parameter is elevated. Until the recent times the only way to get this data was the cardiac catheterization, an invasive method.
With the technical development the first non-invasive solutions (the applanation tonometry and the piezoelectric method) appeared appr. 30 years ago.
The application of these methods was rather complicated: it required a well-trained staff and the measurement took considerably long time.
For these reasons, these solutions could not spread across the clinical field.
The Tensiomed developper team had an opportunity to watch the signals on an oscilloscope during a digital, oscillometric blood pressure measurement.
It was surprising to see how complex and at the same time how distinct signals can be observed at different pressure levels.
From this moment, we were eager to find out why the maximum amplitudes are only used from the oscillometric readings, to determine the blood pressure?
What about the whole curve with all it’s details?
We were assuming that the oscillometric readings might be consisting direct information about thestate of the arteries and the systemic circulation.
It turned out that we identified a new discipline, the Arterial Stiffness which has been rarely studied (or not at all) so we considered as a mission, to develop the best and most reliable device, the Arteriograph, to measure the hemodynamic parameters.
