Abstract

The paper presents the design and development of a signal database used for the determination of hemodynamic parameters. The signals from the database are used for the evaluation of new algorithms determining hemodynamic parameters. The signal database consists of synchronously obtained independent signals – the records of oscillometric pulsations, the records of electrocardiograms (ECG) and the records of photoplethysmogram (PPG). Currently the signal database consists of signals from about 65 persons. The signals were recorded from persons in wide age range from 19 to 94 years. The signals were stored anonymously, but each set of signals was labeled by the ID number and the anamnestic data.
