Our lab stays consistent with the "the first beat heard on return." Remember that the wave form configuration and if the artery is calcified or partially calcified also count. I do PVR first then when happy with that do BP's second.  pg

Take the pressure at the point where you first hear the signal (or see a phasic waveform)

But the question is where to take the pressure measurment...at the point of the returning pulse (albiet retrograde) or when it returns to antegrade.? 

I take it at the point of the returning pulse.
