How to calculate the ankle-brachial index (ABI). With the patient positioned supine with the ankles and arms at the level of the heart, a health care provider measures the blood pressure in all four limbs using a hand-held Doppler device with a blood pressure cuff and sphygmomanometer. For a standard ankle-brachial index measurement in clinical practice, the higher of the two ankle pressures measured at the ankle is used as the numerator and the higher of the two arm pressures is used as the…

Normal ABI ranges from 1.0 — 1.4 Pressure is normally higher in the ankle than the arm. Values above 1.4 suggest a noncompressible calcified vessel. In diabetic or elderly patients, the limb vessels may be fibrotic or calcified. In this case, the vessel may be resistant to collapse by the blood pressure cuff, and a signal may be heard at high cuff pressures. The persistence of a signal at a high pressure in these individuals results in an artifactually elevated blood…

The Diabetic TM-ABI is the first valuable automated ankle-brachial index measuring device based on oscillometric and pneumo-plethysmography method (Pulse Volume Records). The blood pressure on the upper and lower extremities is measured simultaneously, resulting in the calculation of the anklebrachial index (ABI).

Ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a simple comparison of perfusion pressures in the lower leg with those in the upper arm. This noninvasive test is used to screen for evidence of significant arterial insufficiency, to identify patients who need further work-up, and to help to determine if compression therapy is appropriate for lower extremity wounds.
