About

Pulse wave transit time (PWTT) increases due to decreased arterial vascular tone resulting from sympathetic blockade caused by regional anesthesia. Its oscillation (PWTT variability) also contains information on the interaction between autonomic nervous system and the cardiovascular system. The changes in PWTT and its variability have not been investigated in patients receiving interscalene brachial plexus block (ISBPB). It was hypothesized that ISBPB increases PWTT and reduces low frequency power of PWTT variability.
