    This study proposes a Semi-Classical Signal Analysis (SCSA) method for stroke volume (SV) variations assessment from arterial blood pressure measurements. One of the SCSA parameters, the first systolic invariant (INVS), has been shown to be linearly related to SV. To technically validate this...

    Background: Concerns persist about the validity of generalized transfer function-derived, aortic blood-pressure measurements during the administration of vasoactive agents in clinical trials. Hence, we compared this transfer-function method with another, which estimates aortic systolic pressure...

    A method for continuous rapid registration of systolic and diastolic pressures is described. A brief discussion of the possible sources of error in the systolic and diastolic pressure determinations has been presented.

    Purpose: The objective of the present study was to validate noninvasive, continuous blood pressure (BP) measurement using pulse transit time (PTT) to represent absolute values and detect BP changes under continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment. Methods: We applied CPAP to 78...

    This study aimed to assess the difference in blood pressure readings between the standard and large cuff and to determine if such a difference applies over a range of arm circumferences (ACs) in pregnancy. We measured blood pressure on 219 antenatal women. Six blood pressure readings were taken,...
