Accurate Fiducial Point Detection Using Haar Wavelet for Beat-by-Beat Blood Pressure Estimation
Pulse Arrival Time (PAT) derived from Electrocardiogram (ECG) and Photoplethysmogram (PPG) for cuff-less Blood Pressure (BP) measurement has been a contemporary and widely accepted technique. However, the features extracted for it are conventionally from an isolated pulse of ECG and... Read more

Reduced Rank Least Squares for Real-Time Short Term Estimation of Mean Arterial Blood Pressure in Septic Patients Receiving Norepinephrine
    Abstract Norepinephrine (NE), an endogenous catecholamine, is a mainstay treatment for septic shock, which is a life-threatening manifestation of severe infection. NE counteracts the loss in blood pressure associated with septic shock. However, an NE infusion that is too low fails... 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

Real-Time Blood Pressure Estimation From Force-Measured Ultrasound
Common techniques to measure blood pressure include an arterial catheter, an oscillometric pressure cuff, or an auscultatory pressure cuff. Oscillometric and auscultatory cuffs have an associated error, cannot be used continuously, and fully collapse the brachial artery. An auscultatory cuff... Read more

Bi-Modal Arterial Compliance Probe for Calibration-Free Cuffless Blood Pressure Estimation
Non-invasive measurement of Blood Pressure (BP) has well-established utility in screening, clinical diagnosis and patient follow-up for a variety of critical disease conditions. Each usage scenario of BP poses unique functional requirements and challenges. The emerging field of non-invasive, cuffless... Read more

Unobtrusive Detection of Simulated Orthostatic Hypotension and Supine Hypertension using Ballistocardiogram and Electrocardiogram of Healthy Adults
Effective management of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension and supine hypertension (SH-OH) due autonomic failure requires a frequent and timely adjustment of medication throughout the day to maintain the blood pressure (BP) within the normal range, i.e., an accurate depiction of BP... Read more

Development of a Standard Protocol for the Harmonic Analysis of Radial Pulse Wave and Assessing its Reliability in Healthy Humans
This study was aimed to establish a standard protocol and to quantitatively assess the reliability of harmonics analysis of the radial pulse wave measured by Harmonic wave analyzer-TD01C system. Both intra-observer and inter-observer assessments was conducted to investigate whether the... Read more

An Ear-Worn Vital Signs Monitor
  Cardiovascular disease (CVD) affects over one third of the U.S. population and is the current leading cause of death. Many key cardiovascular parameters such as the heart rate, stroke volume, pre-ejection period (PEP), and pulse transit time (PTT) have valuable... Read more
