Advancing Age and the Impact on the Central Haemodynamics

As a result of the aging process, significant changes occur in the arterial system. Increases in the brachial systolic and pulse blood pressures and the initial increase then decrease in diastolic blood pressure with age go hand in hand with substantial structural and functional modifications of the arterial wall. Bobby Stutz, senior research engineer at AtCor Medical, Inc, and Dr D. Winter, senior consultant, Scientific and Clinical Affairs at AtCor Medical, focus on advancing age and the impact on the central haemodynamics.
