Effects of a 4 Week Exercise Intervention on Brachial and Core Blood Pressures
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in the world. Research has consistently shown that high blood pressure is a major cardiovascular risk factor, which emphasizes the need to monitor it in all individuals. Blood pressure measurements are typically obtained using the brachial artery, but core blood pressure obtained using pulse wave analysis (PWA) has been gaining popularity. This is due to the fact that previous research supports that core blood pressure may be a better predictor of cardiovascular events.
