Ramakrishna Mukkamala

Ramakrishna Mukkamala (M’02) received the B.S.E. degree in biomedical/electrical engineering from Duke University, Durham, NC, USA, in 1993, and the S.M. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge,MA, USA, in 1995 and 2000, respectively. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Engineer at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA, from 2000 to 2002. Since then, he has been on the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, USA, where he is currently a Professor. His research interests include biomedical signal processing and identification, modeling of physiologic systems, cardiovascular physiology, and patient monitoring. Dr. Mukkamala received the AHA Scientist Development Grant, an US National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award, and an MSU Teacher- Scholar Award. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, the Editor of the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems Engineering Theme of the IEEE EMBS Conference Proceedings, and a Member of the IEEE EMBS Technical Committee on Cardiopulmonary Systems.

Towards Ubiquitous Blood Pressure Monitoring via Pulse Transit Time: Theory and Practice
Ubiquitous blood pressure monitoring is on the horizon for two reasons. One reason is a profound need. Hypertension is a major cardiovascular risk factor that is treatable, yet high blood pressure detection and control rates are abysmally low, especially in... Read more

Ballistocardiogram-Based Approach to Cuff-Less Blood Pressure Monitoring: Proof-of-Concept and Potential Challenges
The goal of this study was to propose and establish the proof-of-concept of an ultra-convenient cuffless blood pressure (BP) monitoring approach based on the ballistocardiogram (BCG).  The proposed approach monitors systolic and diastolic BP (SP and DP) independently by exploiting... Read more

Patient-Specific Oscillometric Blood Pressure Measurement
Oscillometric devices are widely used for automatic cuff blood pressure (BP) measurement.  These devices act as both an actuator to alter the transmural pressure of the brachial artery via cuff inflation/deflation and a sensor to measure the pressure inside the... Read more

Patient-Specific Oscillometric Blood Pressure Measurement: Validation for Accuracy and Repeatability
Oscillometric devices are widely used for automatic cuff blood pressure (BP) measurement. These devices estimate BP from the oscillometric cuff pressure waveform using population average methods. Hence, the devices may only be accurate over a limited BP range. The objective... Read more
