The head of the bed can be elevated slightly, and the patient’s head can rest on a pillow. The patient’s hip is generally externally rotated with the knee slightly bent to facilitate the lower extremity evaluation. Alternative positions for the Doppler lower extremity examination include right or left lateral decubitus (patient on his or her side) or the prone position for access to the popliteal artery. The Doppler probe (transducer) must be positioned on the long axis of the vessel. An angle of insonation of approximately 45–60° is usually used for this study.

Am J Epidemiol 1994;140:526–534. 3 Segmental Doppler Pressures and Doppler Waveform Analysis in Peripheral Vascular Disease of the Lower Extremities Ali F. AbuRahma and Kimberly S. 2 popularized the use of transcutaneous flow detection to study peripheral vascular occlusive disease, the diagnosis or objective assessment of limb ischemia was dependent upon clinical examination, arteriography, or plethysmography.

The patient preparation and positioning are similar to those of the Doppler velocity waveform analysis. 3. Segmental Doppler Pressures and Doppler Waveform Analysis Technique for Segmental Doppler Pressures The brachial artery Doppler systolic pressures are measured in each arm. Cuffs of appropriate size (bladder dimension 12 × 40 cm) are placed on each arm. The brachial artery is palpated in the antecubital fossa, and a small amount of acoustic gel is applied to the skin over the artery. The arterial signal is found using the Doppler probe, and then the cuff is inflated until the signal disappears (20–30 mm Hg beyond the last audible Doppler signal).
