Method and apparatus for determining blood pressure using pressure pulse duty cycle



Method and apparatus for determining blood pressure using pressure pulse duty cycle



Official Gazette of the United States Patent and Trademark Office Patents 1284(4)



A method of processing oscillometric blood pressure pulse data taken from a subject is disclosed. In an exemplary embodiment, the method includes determining a pressure pulse period of a cardiac cycle of the subject and identifying a duration of a pressure pulse detected within the pressure pulse period. Then, a duty cycle of the pressure pulse is calculated with respect to the pressure pulse period, wherein the calculated duty cycle is used to determine selected blood pressure parameters.
