Feasibility Study of Non-invasive and Continuous Measurement of Blood Pressure and Cardiac Output: Comparison to Non-invasive and Non-continuous Measurements

2014-08-27 04:00:43 | BioPortfolio


The objectives of this clinical trial is to validate a S/W application to compare the calculations of Hemodynamic parameters like Continuous blood pressure (BP) and Continuous cardiac output (CO). This Hemodynamic parameters are computed from Pulse Oximeter (PhotoPlethysmograph or PPG) signal with results obtained by NIBP intermittent measurements and Echocardiography. The first phase of the study will be done on 10 patients of the Cardiology dept.- Cardiac ICU, that have routine measurements of BP and CO using Echocardiography.

The HeartBeat system combines an FDA/CE approved watch-like Pulse Oximeter for acquiring the data and a Smartphone S/W application that serves as the Hemodynamic calculator. The S/W application performs POST-PROCESSING of the PhotoPlethismoGraphic (PPG) signal (Normally the PPG signal in Pulse Oximeters is used only to compute heart rate and SpO2). The raw data is transferred from the watch oximeter to the smartphone using a standard Bluetooth protocol.

The Post-processing uses wavelet signal processing to estimate and display certain Hemodynamic parameters like (Blood Pressure) BP and CO in a continuous and graphical way on a standard Android Smartphone. In addition to the standard heart rate and SpO2, the application displays the measured PPG signal and estimated continues BP and CO.

HeartBeat is the only device that can non-invasively estimate Continuous BP and its Cardiac Output component and the resistance component in a mobile wearable device. Differentiating between these 2 components can play a major role in helping the doctor to understand the effect of cardiovascular medications and Lifestyle interventions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.

Cardiac manifestation of systemic rheumatological conditions, such as RHEUMATIC FEVER. Rheumatic heart disease can involve any part the heart, most often the HEART VALVES and the ENDOCARDIUM.

A voluntary organization concerned with the prevention and treatment of heart and vascular diseases.

Disease-related laceration or tearing of tissues of the heart, including the free-wall MYOCARDIUM; HEART SEPTUM; PAPILLARY MUSCLES; CHORDAE TENDINEAE; and any of the HEART VALVES. Pathological rupture usually results from myocardial infarction (HEART RUPTURE, POST-INFARCTION).

Diseases characterized by pathological irregularities in the HEART CONDUCTION SYSTEM. They may be associated with other heart diseases and syndromes (e.g., BRUGADA SYNDROME; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASE, HEART BLOCKS), isolated or may result from injuries. You can have a conduction disorder without having an arrhythmia, but some arrhythmias arise from conduction disorders. OMIM: 601144.
