Abstract
An ultrasonic device was developed for continuous monitoring of the internal diameter of human peripheral arteries. The diastolic internal diameter of the radial artery measured in 10 supine normotensive subjects averaged 2.36 +/- 0.12 mm (mean +/- s.e.) and the change in diameter during the pulse wave was 0.037 +/- 0.003 mm. It was surprising to find that when the transducer was used to apply pressure on the radial artery, the difference between the systolic and the diastolic diameter was significantly increased while the diastolic diameter was reduced. This method therefore allows continuous, accurate and non-invasive measurement of the internal diameter of the human radial artery.
