Özet

Aims Estimated central systolic blood pressure (cSBP) and amplification (Brachial SBP-cSBP) are non-invasivemeasures potentially prognostic of cardiovascular (CV) disease. No worldwide, multiple-device reference values are available. We aimed to establish reference values for a worldwide general population standardizing between the different available methods of measurement. How these values were significantly altered by cardiovascular risk factors (CVRFs) was then investigated.
