The Sphygmocor measurement system is a sophisticated system for measuring central blood pressure and arterial stiffness, an early indicator of heart and vascular disease. Sphygmocor testing detects any elevated risk for cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke. The test is used for a clearer assessment of true blood pressure and might help identify whether you are truly hypertensive or not.
It's also used to measure the stiffness of your blood vessels and may be highly predictive of underlying heart disease, as well as identifying any need for treatment. Sphygmocor testing involves having a few electrodes placed on your chest. Your heart rate and rhythm will be recorded by ECG. Three measurements will be recorded via a simple probe applied to your wrist, neck and the top of your leg.
Your doctor will call you for a further appointment or, if in The Lister Hospital, the results will be discussed with you the same day.
