Vascular age (years)

SBP: systolic blood pressure; DBP: diastolic blood pressure; MAP: mean arterial pressure; PP: pulse pressure; PPA: pulse pressure amplification; AP: augmentation pressure; AI: augmentation index; RC: reflection coefficient; PWV: pulse wave velocity, PR: peripheral resistance; CO: cardiac output; SV: stroke volume; CI: cardiac index; m: meters; dyn: dynes; s: seconds. Statistically significant; PP is defined as difference in mean SBP and DBP; MAP is defined as ; PPA is defined as by indirect derived calculations; vascular age (years) is the age of vessels older than biological age or the same as the biological age.
