1. External compression of the buman brachial artery results in waveform reflection. 2. Resonant waves are found superimposed on the original blood pressure signal. 3. The mechanism may be I,ikened to the operation of an organ pipe with reflections at both ends of an arterial segment. 4. This bas implications for measurements in arteries where external pressure is applied.
