Blood pressure measurement is performed either invasively by an intra arterial catheter or noninvasively by cuff sphygmomanometry. The invasive method is continuous and accurate but has increased risk; the cuff is safe but less reliable and infrequent. A reliable continuous noninvasive blood pressure measurement is highly desirable. While the possibility of using pulse transit time to monitor blood pressure has previously been investigated, most studies were limited to calculating the… CONTINUE READING
