Abstract

Development of wearable medical devices to measure noninvasive blood pressure (NIBP) has recently been evolving at finger/wrist and earlobe locations. The study investigates the predictive power of pulse transit time (PTT) and pulse arrival time (PAT) measured at finger and earlobe sites for BP measurement during two unique physiological interventions: handgrip test (HGT) and modified Valsalva test (mVT). Single-lead electrocardiogram, impedance cardiogram, infrared photoplethysmogram (PPG) from finger and earlobe, and CNAP NIBP were simultaneously acquired in 14 heathy subjects (39±11 years); beat-to-beat BP, PAT and PTT were extracted; linear regression, correlation and statistical analyses were carried out. The results show that both the BP interventions caused significant increase (P
