The prandial effect on the pulse spectrum of the radial artery was studied. Ingestion greatly affected the spectrum of the pressure pulse. For most of the tested subjects, the harmonic proportions of the 2nd and the 4th harmonic increased significantly after ingestion, however a decreasing effect was found on the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th harmonics. The spectrum became stable from half hour after ingestion and last 3 to 4 hours. From these results, a reliable pulse diagnosis is therefore suggested to be done in the period when the pulse spectrum is stable; physiological significance of these postprandial phenomena is also discussed.
