Modeling of Noninvasive Arterial Blood Pressure Methods

  • Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter, current methods of noninvasive arterial pressure measurement will be reviewed and analyzed. Two methods are commonly employed: sampling of arterial pulse pressure and continuous recording of the pulse waveform. The sampling methods typically provide systolic and diastolic pressure and sometimes mean pressure. These values are typically obtained from different heart beats and within a minute. Continuous recording methods provide resolution of single beat pulse waveform and beat to beat pressure as well. Some continuous methods are not calibrated though and only provide pulse pressure waveform and timing.

Keywords

  • Mean Arterial Pressure
  • Brachial Artery
  • Cuff Pressure
  • Transmural Pressure
  • Pulse Waveform

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
