Segmental Blood Pressure Measurement, Doppler Waveform Record, Pulse Volume Recording (PVR), Exercise PVR and Exercise Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) are designed to assess location and severity of lower limb arterial occlusive disease. The tests are performed with the patient in a supine position.
Figure 1 (Page 2) shows bilateral brachial, thigh, above knee, below knee and ankle (posterior tibial and dorsalis pedis) blood pressures, as well as common femoral, superficial femoral, popliteal, posterior tibial and dorsalis pedis artery Doppler waveforms.
Figure 2 (Page 3) shows bilateral thigh, above knee, below knee and ankle PVR. As Falcon Pro has 10 independent pressure channels, all PVR measurements can be made at the same time, hence completing all measurements in just a few seconds.
Figure 3 (Page 4) shows bilateral ankle PVR post exercise. Again, bilateral measurements for each ankle can be carried out at the same time.
Figure 4 (Page 5) shows bilateral ankle pressures and ABIs at rest and post treadmill exercise.
