Pilot investigation of photoplethysmographic signals and blood oxygen saturation values during blood pressure cuff-induced hypoperfusion

Article English OPEN
Kyriacou, P. A.; Shafqat, K.; Pal, S. K.;

Photoplethysmography (PPG) is a non-invasive electro-optical technique widely used in the monitoring of the pulsations associated with changes in blood volume in a peripheral vascular bed. The technique is based on the absorption properties of vascular tissue when it is... View more
