Abstract

The currently accepted methods for measuring systemic blood pressure are either highly accurate but invasive in nature or clinically convenient but prone to observer-related errors. A new oscillometric method uses sensitive signal conditioning and sensing equipment with a non-invasive arm cuff to record arterial pulsations. The goal of this study is to establish more reliable criteria for the identification of systolic and diastolic pressures from oscillometric data.
