A Method Using Induced Waves to Study Pressure Propagation in Human Arteries
This report describes a method for utilizing externally induced impacts as a means of studying the propagation of pressure waves in intact human arteries. Because it is a new method its description is prefaced by a brief presentation of several factors relevant to wave propagation in living vessels; the description is followed by a critical evaluation.
