Introduction: Pulse wave velocity or (or VWV) may relate to muscle mass and body fat. We have included measurements for the above in the routine 12 channel ECG.
Methods: A 12 channel ECG supplies impedance plethysmographic measurements at the four extremities at 40 kHz . From these VWW was derived in analogy to carotid femoral PWV. Impedance measurements at 5, 40 and 400 kHz in six body segments are also provided . From these AppMM and body fat were measured in 123 participants without diabetes and CHF and in 72 patients with CHF (NYHA class 2 to 4).
Results: In multiple backward stepwise regression analysis VWV was related positively to age, standardized systolic blood pressure  and negatively to AppMM index (total r = 0.83, p < 0.001) but not to body fat.
Discussion: The relation between VWV and the degree of sarcopenia in CHF reveals the importance of muscularity for aortic health.
