CARDIO ANKLE VASCULAR INDEX (CAVI)
CAVI can be used to reflect the level stiffness of your arteries from the heart to ankle. There are no special preparations required before doing CAVI. It feels just as taking your blood pressure in both arms and ankles. CAVI is helpful as an early screening test for arterial stiffness. Arterial stiffness can result as a consequence of biological aging. Increased arterial stiffness is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases.
