- The hearty heart. // Diabetes Forecast;Jan1997, Vol. 50 Issue 1, p43
Presents information about the heart and its role in pumping blood throughout the body. Mechanism by which the heart functions; Circulation of oxygenated blood in the body; Correlation of the pulse with the heart's action.
- sphygmogram. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p2042
The article presents a definition for the term "sphygmogram," which means tracing of the pulse by using the sphygmograph.
- pulse. // American Heritage Student Science Dictionary;2009, p280
The article presents an encyclopedia definition for the term "pulse." It refers to the rhythmical expansion and contraction of the arteries as blood is pumped through them by the beating of the heart.
- pulse. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p640
An encyclopedia entry for "pulse" is presented. It refers to the rhythmic expansion and contraction of an artery due to the surge of blood from the pumping of the heart. Pulse points are points on the exterior of the body where arteries lie just below the skin's surface and where a pulse can be...
- Enhancement of third harmonic generation by a laser-induced plasma. Hartinger, Klaus; Bartels, Randy A. // Applied Physics Letters;10/13/2008, Vol. 93 Issue 15, p151102
We demonstrate more than two orders of magnitude in enhancement of conversion of an ultrafast probe pulse to the third harmonic that is time delayed with respect to a pump pulse. The enhancement is observed in various atomic and molecular gases over a range of pressures.
- sphygmo-. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p2042
The article presents a definition for the term "sphygmo-," which refers to the combining form meaning pulse.
- pulsation. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p1818
A definition of the term "pulsation" is presented. It refers to a rhythmic beat or throbbing, as of the heart and blood vessels.
- sphygmic. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p2042
The article presents a definition for the term "sphygmic," which is related to blood circulation.
- Pulse transit time ratio as a potential marker for paediatric crural and brachial blood pressure index. Foo, J Y A; Lim, C S; Wilson, S J; Williams, G R; Harris, M-A; Cooper, D M // Journal of Human Hypertension;May2007, Vol. 21 Issue 5, p415
Pulse transit time (PTT) has shown to be inversely correlated with blood pressure (BP). However, there is limited understanding in the current literature about the potential use of PTT-related measurement in assessing the ratio of the crural and brachial BP or the ankle brachial index (ABI).
