A novel motion-tolerant algorithm for continuous real-time monitoring of blood constituents by means of pulse oximetry is introduced. Motion artifacts frequently lead to false interpretations of the measured signal or can cause a failure of the signal detection. Therefore these disturbances are required to be recognized and suppressed while the useful signal should remain possibly unaffected. The technique is based on the continuous wavelet analysis combined with optional adaptive peak… CONTINUE READING
