Pulse

Pulse

A recorded pulse signal can be derived from a number of transducers, intended to detect the pulsatile flow of blood into the central or peripheral arteries. Typically, this is used as an indicator of heart rate, or as a timing signal indicative of pulse transit time.

Signal Overview

A pulse signal may be derived from various sources; a finger pulse transducer, IR plethysmograph, non-invasive pulse tonometer, pulse oximeter, microphone, or any transducer detecting changes in blood flow in localized circulation. A pulse signal can be used as a simple means of detecting heart rate, or utilized in a more advanced analysis approach such as pulse transit time. Higher quality pulse signals, for example, those deriving from a non-invasive pulse tonometer, may be used as an indicator of arterial stiffness.
