The patient lies supine on the exam table and relaxes in order to
stabilise his heart rate and blood pressure while the operator
launches Complior Analyse software and enter the patient’s details
(name, age, sex etc…).
The operator locates the carotid and femoral arteries and marks the
point where she/he will be measuring carotid and femoral pressure.
The operator measures the distance between the carotid and femoral
arteries and enters it on the Complior Analyse software.
Cuff blood pressure is measured and entered on the Complior Analyse
software then signal acquisition is launched
The operator positions the carotid sensor with the help of its
he operator holds the femoral sensor on the femoral artery. When
software indicators turn green, he/she stops the acquisition.
The Complior Analyse software displays the pulse wave velocity and
the central (carotid) pressure waveform analysis.
