Venous plethysmography

Venous plethysmography

Venous plethysmography: Venous plethysmography is used to measure changes in the volume of an extremity, usually a leg; blood pressure cuffs are placed at the proximal, middle, and distal portions of the leg and attached to a pulse-volume recorder (plethysmograph). Venous blood flow is monitored by inflating and then releasing the proximal cuff and recording the distal cuff monitor.
