Abstract

In the current study, a non-invasive technique for blood pressure (BP) measurement based on the detection of Photoplethysmographic (PPG) pulses during pressure-cuff deflation was compared to sphygmomanometry—the Korotkoff sounds technique. The PPG Senor used to measure blood pressure using the technique of correlation of volume and pressure. The performance of portable and wearable biosensorsis highly influenced by motion artifact, artery stiffness, measurement sites, light wavelength, sensor pressure, A novel real time system is proposed for accurate motion-tolerant extraction of heart rate (HR) and pulse oximeter oxygen saturation (SpO2) from wearable Photoplethysmographic (PPG) biosensors. Recently, monitoring of blood pressure fluctuation in the daily life is focused on in the hypertension care area to predict the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease events. The main problem is using with digital BP monitoring machine is Doctors are not believe on digital machines they believe with only sphygmomanometer. In this paper, in order to propose an alternative system to the existed ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) sphygmomanometer, to sort out the problems using small wearable device consisting of photoplethysmograph (PPG) sensors. Recent advances in optical technology have facilitated the use of high-intensity green LEDs for PPG, increasing the adoption of this measurement technique. In this paper, we briefly present the problems of PPG sensor and recent developments in wearable pulse rate sensors with green LEDs.

  1. Because of posts like this I surf the internet and when I found you, the time I felt I was wasting, just turned my thoughts around and now I am thinking I invested my time in something really interesting.
