Pulse Volume Recording (PVR)

What to expect:

Pulse Volume Recording (PVR) is a non-invasive test to check blood circulation through the body. A cardiopulmonary technician will place blood pressure cuffs on the patient's arms, thighs, calves, ankles, and possibly toes. Resting measurements will be obtained and then a short walk on a treadmill will follow. Once the walk is complete, post exercise measurements will be taken.

Instructions

  • Patients will be asked to remove pants, shoes, socks, and possibly shirt for this test.

Total Time: 1 hour
