  • (A) presents OLS regression coefficients for the OLS regression model: E(ln(cfPWV)|X)=β01(AIx)+β2(MAP)+β3(FMD)+β4(HR). (B) present type III ANOVA F-tests of the OLS analysis.

  • AIx, augmentation index; ANOVA, analysis of variance; cfPWV, carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity; FMD, flow-mediated dilation; MAP, mean arterial pressure; OLS, ordinary least squares.
