An Ultrasound Look at Korotkoff sounds: the role of pulse wave velocity and flow turbulence

Abstract

Aims : The aim of this study was to analyze the temporal relationships between pressure, flow, and Korotkoff sounds, providing clues for their comprehensive interpretation. Materials and methods : When measuring blood pressure in a group of 23 volunteers, we used duplex Doppler ultrasonography to assess, under the arm-cuff, the brachial artery flow, diameter changes, and local pulse wave velocity (PWV), while recording Korotkoff sounds 10 cm downstream together with cuff pressure and ECG.
