In this article, we analyze the arterial pulse in the spectral domain. A parameter, the spectral harmonic energy ratio (SHER), is developed to assess the features of the overly decreased spectral energy in the fourth to sixth harmonic for palpitation patients. Compared with normal subjects, the statistical results reveal that the mean value of SHER in the(More)
This study aims to explore the effects of heat and cold stress on the radial pressure pulse (RPP) and heart rate variability (HRV). The subjects immersed their left hand into 45°C and 7°C water for 2 minutes. Sixty healthy subjects (age 25 ± 4 yr; 29 men and 31 women) were enrolled in this study. All subjects underwent the supine temperature measurements of(More)
This study analyzed the exponential decay characteristic of the harmonic peaks in the spectrum of blood pressure wave (BPW) from radial artery at wrist. Low-order harmonic deviation (LHD), high-order harmonic deviation (HHD), total harmonic deviation (THD) and exponent (alpha) were developed to assess the exponential decay feature of normal subjects (N(More)
This study is to investigate the influences of acupuncture for dyspepsia on the Radial Pressure Pulse (RPP) between the Chun, Guan and Chy positions of the right/left wrist. Two series of experiments were designed; for the first series, 30 patients with dyspepsia (Group P) and 30 normal subjects (Group N) were seated to undergo the measurements of pulse(More)
OBJECTIVES This study is the first to detect the radial pulses of the three diagnosis positions (inch, bar, and cubit) in both wrists (six positions) by pulse spectrum analysis. The purpose of this study was to identify the difference among pulses of the six positions at three stages of pregnancy and to examine whether the results of this study agree with(More)
Diagnosis by radial arterial pulse is very important in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of detection time and position on the parameters of time- and frequency-domain of radial pulse wave and to differentiate between Dyspepsia and Rhinitis by the statistical analysis of two signal types.
