Correlation of simplified peak power with peak instantaneous power (dogs) or V˙O2 (humans) using mean arterial pressure or systolic blood pressure

MAP (r, SEE)SBP (r, SEE)
FlowFP × pressure0.97, 0.160.99, 0.08
FlowPW × pressure0.92, 0.240.93, 0.25
FlowCW × pressure0.89, 0.310.89, 0.36
FlowCW × pressure0.78, 1.40.78, 2.37
  • CW, continuous wave Doppler; MAP, mean arterial blood pressure; PW, pulse wave Doppler; SBP, systolic blood pressure;V˙O2, maximum oxygen consumption.
