BACKGROUND: Aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a common measure of arterial stiffness, and an independent predictor of cardiovascular disease risk. Currently, the gold standard PWV measure, carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV), is taken using two arterial sites. A single-point method of PWV would be useful as it would decrease required operator training and subject burden. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to assess (1) overall, and (2) repeated measures (RM) agreement, between cfPWV and two test measures, which estimate aortic PWV from the brachial artery. METHODS: The criterion aortic cfPWV measure was obtained with carotid and femoral artery oscillometric cuffs. Brachial-based PWV was obtained using the Uscom BP+ device (PWV BP) and the Mobil-o-graph device (PWV MOG). Measurements were made in the supine, then semi- recumbent, then seated position. Postural change was used as a hemodynamic perturbation for ascertainment of RM agreement. Multi- level correlation was used to calculate overall agreement (independent of posture), and RM correlation was used to determine whether change (i.e., with change in posture) in the test measure agrees with change in the criterion. Strength of agreement was interpreted as the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), with estimates of <0.2, 0.2, 0.4, 0.7, and 0.9 representing negligible, weak, moderate, strong, and very strong agreement, respectively. RESULTS: Complete data was collected for 22 subjects (age: 26+/-5.4 years, 59% female). cfPWV increased approximately 1m/s from the supine to semi-recumbent, and from the semi-recumbent to seated posture. The overall and RM agreements between PWV MOG and cfPWV were weak, with the ICC: 0.25, 95%CI [0.01, 0.46] and ICC -0.22, 95% CI [-0.49, 0.09], respectively. The overall agreement between PWV BP and cfPWV wasweak (ICC 0.34, 95% CI [0.11, 0.54]) and the RM agreement was negligible (ICC 0.17, 95% CI [-0.14, 0.44]). Limits of agreement plots indicated bias, with both single-point methods producing lower PWV than the criterion. CONCLUSIONS: The preliminary results show the PWV MOG weakly but significantly agreed with cfPWV, whereas PWV BP weakly and non-significantly agreed with cfPWV. RM agreement was negligible to weak, likely because both single point-measures changed minimally with postural change, whereas the criterion device recorded expected increases in PWV with more upright postur
