The augmentation index (AIx) and "oscillatory" compliance (C(2)) are wave contour analysis parameters for the central aorta (P(ao)) and radial artery pressure wave (P(rad)), respectively. Both are sensitive to cardiovascular risk factors such as aging, hypertension, and diabetes and have been proposed as prognostic markers for cardiovascular disease. In this work, we studied the relation between both. We first calculated P(rad) corresponding to a typical aortic A-type (AIx >0.15) and C-type wave (AIx
