Central aortic pulse wave. No signs of arterial stiffness as indicated by low central pulse pressure augmentation. Brachial blood pressure was 125/65 mmHg, pulse pressure 60 mmHg; central aortic systolic/diastolic blood pressure 112 ± 1/66 ± 0 mmHg, central aortic pulse pressure 46 ± 1 mmHg; aortic augmentation pressure 11.5 ± 1.5 mmHg, aortic augmentation index 25 ± 2%.
