• With topical anesthesia, a Goldmann contact lens fitted with a pressure sensor in its holding ring was placed onto the cornea. (arvojournals.org)
  • Pressure was asserted onto the globe by pressing the contact lens, and the pressure value at the time when the central retinal artery and vein started pulsating were noted as central retinal artery and vein collapse pressure. (arvojournals.org)
  • 7. The apparatus according to claim 6, wherein said system for locally applying a pressure to an artery occludes said artery, said temporal amplitude pattern comprising a pair of adjacent amplitude peaks and an intervening dip, the computing device calculating a ratio of the amplitude difference of first peak and intervening dip, and the second peak.

  • The systemic vascular resistance is computed by occluding blood flow with a supersystolic pressure, and calculating, based on a natural logarithm of a difference in amplitude between a first major systolic peak and first major systolic trough and an amplitude of a second major systolic peak, a first order linear equation, which may be normalized for body surface area.
