Feasibility of pulse presence and pulse strength assessment during head-up tilt table testing using an accelerometer located at the carotid artery

Abstract

Neurally mediated syncope (NMS) is a disorder of the autonomic regulation of postural tone, which is characterized by hypotension and/or bradycardia, resulting in cerebral hypo-perfusion and finally in a sudden loss of consciousness. Prediction of an impending NMS requires detection of pulse presence to derive heart rate (HR) as well as to assess the pulse… (More)
