PVR (Pulse Volume Recording)
This test is non-invasive procedure used to detect the presence of PAD (peripheral arterial disease) as well as its severity and general location. It compares
the systolic blood pressure (maximum pressure when your heart pumps out blood) of your legs compared to that of your arms.
The test is done while you are in a partially propped-up position. During an exercise PVR, you will be ask to ambulate on a treadmil. Blood pressure cuffs are wrapped snugly around the arm and leg. As they are inflated, pulse waves and pressures from each cuff are measured and recorded. When the test is completed, any differences in pulse waves/pressures are noted which may indicate a blockage/blockages.
