Abstract


Background: Cardio Ankle Vascular Index (CAVI), a new index for arterial stiffness that can be measured by VaSera VS-1000 CAVI device. This is a new method for estimating the level of arteriosclerosis, which is relatively uninfluenced by changes of blood pressure. An association between some arterial fitness indices and cardiac function has been recently demonstrated. CI: is Cardiodynamic measure based on the Cardiac output (CO)which is normalized according to body size ,this is gained by dividing CO on body surface area.
