  • Nikolai SergeyevichKorotkov (also romanized Korotkoff; Russian: Николай Сергеевич Коротков) (26 February [O.S. 14 February]1874 – 14 March 1920) was a Russian surgeon, a pioneer of 20th century vascular surgery, and the inventor of auscultatory technique for blood pressure measurement.Korotkoff method is a non-invasive auscultatory technique for determining both systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels. The method requires а sphygmomanometer and а stethoscope. Due to ease and accuracy, it is considered a "gold standard" for blood pressure measurementKorotkoff sounds are pulse-synchronous circulatory sounds heard through the stethoscope in auscultation of blood pressure using Riva-Rocci's sphygmomanometer.Korotkoff test or Korotkoff sign is a collateral circulation test: in aneurysm, if the blood pressure in the peripheral circulation remains fairly high while the artery above the aneurysm is compressed, the collateral circulation is good.The cuff of Riva-Rocci is placed on the middle third of the upper arm; the pressure within the cuff is quickly raised up to complete cessation of circulation below the cuff. Then, letting the mercury of the manometer fall one listens to the artery just below the cuff with a children's stethoscope. At first no sounds are heard. With the falling of the mercury in the manometer down to a certain height, the first short tones appear; their appearance indicates the passage of part of the pulse wave under the cuff. It follows that the manometric figure at which the first tone appears corresponds to the maximal pressure. With the further fall of the mercury in the manometer one hears the systolic compression murmurs, which pass again into tones (second). Finally, all sounds disappear. The time of the cessation of sounds indicates the free passage of the pulse wave; in other words at the moment of the disappearance of the sounds the minimal blood pressure within the artery predominates over the pressure in the cuff. It follows that the manometric figures at this time correspond to the minimal blood pressure.

  • Power to Achieve BP Goals in Uncontrolled Hypertensive Patients
  • Irbesrartan/HCTZ and JNCVII goal BP
  • Why Irbesartan is Unique?• Irbesartan’s specific targeting of the AT1 receptor completely blocking of the renin-angiotensin system than that offered by angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors.(1)• Irbesartan is well absorbed, does not require biotransformation to an active metabolite .• Irbesartan is associated with a strong and consistent dose-response and has been demonstrated to provide a level of angiotensin II antagonism that is statistically superior to that offered by some other ARBs.(1)• Shows better compliance than ACE Inhibitors 1.
