Summary:

My main interest in in blood pressure measurement. We have completed several research projects aimed at improving the accuracy of blood pressure measurement. We have looked at the concept of overcuffing (having a cuff that is too big) on oscillometric (automatic) blood pressure measurements. This work has influenced change on the measurement gudeline committees. We have also looked at the type of blood pressure cuff (one piece versus two piece) and how it influences the blood pressure. Our most recently published work looked at the accuracy of home blood pressure monitors. Our current work is examining the waveforms of oscillometric blood pressures and how they vary in individual populations.
