This paper presents a novel method to estimate the aortic-to-peripheral pulse transit time (PTT) using the blood pressure waveforms measured at two diametric peripheral locations, for instance, one on an upper extremity and the other on a lower extremity. The method is based on a computational relationship between the two peripheral blood pressures, which… CONTINUE READING
