With heightened interest in isolated systolic hypertension as the major antecedent factor in cardiac failure, and with the present focus on pulse pressure rather than mean pressure, clinical attention is swinging from peripheral resistance to large artery stiffness, from the smallest arterioles to the largest arteries. Arterial stiffness is a new concept to many clinicians, even though clinicians and clinical physiologists at the turn of this century established its importance, and developed methods for its measurement. In this book, the first to specifically focus on arterial stiffness in clinical practice, Prof. Roland Asmar has done a splendid job in reviewing older concepts and blending these with the new work that he and his colleagues have been conducting over the past two decades, and contributions from around the globe. The focus of the book is on pulse wave velocity, the first and still the best method for meas
