Automation of an Accurate, Auditory-Based Blood Pressure MonitorPublic Deposited
An increase in blood pressure is a universal symptom for many biological disorders. The current widespread method of automated detection observes cuff pressure oscillations which indirectly relates to systolic & diastolic pressures. Doctors may opt to take a manual measurement by listening to the audible blood flow through the arteries as pressure decreases, since these sounds are directly related to a patient's systolic & diastolic pressures. The inaccuracy with automatic devices impacts patients, but the more involved process for accurate manual methods hinders medical professionals. To address both limitations, we have developed an auditory-based blood pressure device that automates the process of a doctor listening to arterial pressure sounds to ensure a more accurate measurement.
