Table 4 Comparison of measurements left versus right side

From: The influence of physical activity and yoga on central arterial stiffness

  Heart Rate (beats/min) SBP (mmHg) DBP (mmHg) PP (mmHg) Diameter Change (mm) DC (kPa) PWV ECG (m/s) PWV (carotid-femoral) (m/s)
Left 63 ± 10 116 ± 12 70 ± 9.0 46 ± 6.7 0.61 ± 0.11 18.3 ± 3.4 7.69 ± 1.89 7.67 ± 1.73
Right 64 ± 11 117 ± 14 71 ± 8.6 46 ± 7.5 0.60 ± 0.11 18.4 ± 3.5 7.76 ± 1.82 7.72 ± 1.64
Correlation 0.96 0.95 0.93 0.85 0.82 0.98 0.97 0.98
CV 3.4% 6.2% 4.0% 6.8% 6.9% 2.2% 1.8% 1.7%
  1. PP is pulse pressure (systolic – diastolic). Diameter change is diastolic – systolic diameter. DC is distensibility. No significant differences between the left and right side were found for all measurements. Values are means ± SD.
