How do we measure baroreceptor sensitivity?
As a rule, we measure your baroreceptor sensitivity as part of our holistic circulation measurement using the Finapres® method. A plastic ring (cuff) is placed around your middle finger and pressure is exerted, which is completely painless. A light sensor determines the blood pressure and heart rate and calculates your baroreceptor sensitivity. Together with the other values, the doctor receives a comprehensive picture of your cardiovascular system.
