A Comparative Study in the Use of Brachial Photoplethysmography and the QRS Complex as Timing References in Determination of Pulse Transit Time.
In: 23rd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, October 25-28 2001, Turkey.
For more than a century, there has been interest in
pulse wave velocity and pulse transit time as a possible metric
for blood pressure and other cardiovascular parameters. The
most common approach in noninvash:e measurement of these
metries has been to measure the time delay between the QRS
complex on the electrocardiograph and the detection of the
finger photoplethysmograph. This paper introduces a new
technique for measuring the brachial photoplethysmograph and
argues that this forms a better timing reference than the QRS
