How to calculate the ankle-brachial index (ABI). With the patient positioned supine with the ankles and arms at the level of the heart, a health care provider measures the blood pressure in all four limbs using a hand-held Doppler device with a blood pressure cuff and sphygmomanometer. For a standard ankle-brachial index measurement in clinical practice, the higher of the two ankle pressures measured at the ankle is used as the numerator and the higher of the two arm pressures is used as the…

Normal ABI ranges from 1.0 — 1.4        Pressure is normally higher in the ankle than the arm.    Values above 1.4 suggest a noncompressible calcified vessel.        In diabetic or elderly patients, the limb vessels may be fibrotic or calcified. In this case, the vessel may be resistant to collapse by the blood pressure cuff, and a signal may be heard at high cuff pressures. The persistence of a signal at a high pressure in these individuals results in an artifactually elevated blood…

A Closer Look At Non-Invasive Testing Methods For PAD  Whenever one suspects Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), the clinician must perform  the five non-invasive vascular testing methods that are commercially available and widely implemented. They include the ankle brachial index ABI), the toe-brachial index(TBI), pulse volume recording(PVR), transcutaneous oxygen monitoring(TCPO2) and skin perfusion pressure(SPP).

How to perform an ABI screening for PAD Ankle Brachial Index. To calculate the ABI: Divide the highest ankle systolic pressure with the highest brachial pressure for the index.  The AHA gives the following ABI interpretation levels:  >1.3 Noncompressible arteries 1.00-1.29 Normal 0.91-0.99 Borderline (equivocal) 0.41-0.90 Mild-to-moderate PAD 00.00-0.40 Severe PAD

The Diabetic TM-ABI is the first valuable automated ankle-brachial index measuring device based on oscillometric and pneumo-plethysmography method (Pulse Volume Records). The blood pressure on the upper and lower extremities is measured simultaneously, resulting in the calculation of the anklebrachial index (ABI).
