Abstract

Non invasive continuous blood pressure measurement system is more useful than conventional blood pressure measurement systems. The arterial system is extraordinarily well regulated blood delivery network in human body. It responds very quickly according to the body movements like altered body position, or in sudden excitation. So now a day's continuous blood pressure monitoring devices are becoming more essential. Many types of blood pressure measurement devices are available. Those devices allow only few blood pressure readings in every 10 minutes. In contrast to them, we develop a very low cost noninvasive continuous blood pressure measurement and monitoring system. It measures blood pressure using volume oscillometric method and photoplethysmography technique during a long time period continuously. The rate of change of blood volume in an organ such as finger has a linear relationship with blood pressure. This rate of change of blood volume in finger is measured by an optical sensor network which estimates blood pressure. It displays the numerical value of systolic and diastolic blood pressure in a mini LCD. Our developed system is reliable, accurate and less expensive.
