A new concept of non-invasive blood pressure measurement by heart sound pattern analysis is described. The known diagnostic criterion of the 'accentuated' second heart sound of a hypertensive patient is here converted into a computer-aided pattern-recognition process for the second heart sound, applicable over the entire scale of blood pressure. After a 'learning phase', during which the second heart sound is recorded, analysed and correlated with a set of systolic blood pressure values of the… CONTINUE READING
