Abstract

Objective:

1. To measure CASP across a cross-section of our patient (pt) population and assess the demographic profile using A-Pulse CASP device.

Objective:

2. To compare and analyse CASP measurements vs brachial blood pressure (BBP) measurements in pts with Hypertension (HTN) and CKD.

Design and method:

BBP was measured by oscillometric method using A-Pulse device. CASP was then measured by applanation tonometry and radial transfer function technique by placing the sensor of the A-Pulse CASP device over the ipsilateral radial artery.

Results:

Conclusions: In healthy individuals,CASP & not BBP, can predict cardiovascular risk much earlier in those with higher BMI.

Results:

In younger pts with HTN & CKD, Cardiovascular risk is better predicted by CASP and not by BBP measurements.

Results:

Office based measurement of CASP is a necessary additional tool for thorough cardiovascular risk assessment,especially in pts with CKD.
