Abstract

This paper presents a new principle for noninvasive blood pressure measurements through a modified volume-oscillometric technique that eliminates an inflatable pressure cuff, and instead takes advantage of natural hydrostatic pressure changes caused by raising and lowering the subject's arm. This new methodology provides the distinct advantage of using an absolute gauge pressure reference for measurements, and does not necessarily require additional actuation.
