This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Photoplethysmography PPG is used to estimate the skin blood flow using infrared light. Researchers from different domains of science have become increasingly interested in PPG because of its advantages as non-invasive, inexpensive, and convenient diagnostic tool. Traditionally, it measures the oxygen saturation, blood pressure, cardiac output, and for assessing autonomic functions. Moreover, PPG is a promising technique for early screening of various atherosclerotic pathologies and could be helpful for regular GP-assessment but a full understanding of the diagnostic value of the different features is still lacking. Recent studies emphasise the potential information embedded in the PPG waveform signal and it deserves further attention for its possible applications beyond pulse oximetry and heart-rate calculation.

Researchers from different domains of science have become increasingly interested in PPG because of its advantages as non-invasive, inexpensive, and convenient diagnostic tool. Traditionally, it measures the oxygen saturation, blood pressure, cardiac output, and for assessing autonomic functions.

Moreover, PPG is a promising technique for early screening of various atherosclerotic pathologies and could be helpful for regular GP-assessment but a full understanding of the diagnostic value of the different features is still lacking.

Recent studies emphasise the potential information embedded in the PPG waveform signal and it deserves further attention for its possible applications beyond pulse oximetry and heart-rate calculation.

Therefore, this overview discusses different types of artifact added to PPG signal, characteristic features of PPG waveform, and existing indexes to evaluate for diagnoses. Keywords: Photoplethysmography, acceleration plethysmogram, second derivative plethysmogram, digital volume pulse, ageing, artery, autonomic function, blood pressure, cardiovascular, heart rate, pulse wave analysis, vascular disease.

Various types of plethysmograph exist, and each of them measures the changes in blood volume in a different manner with a specific transducer and has certain applications [ 3 ].

On the Analysis of Fingertip Photoplethysmogram Signals

Tension[ edit ] It corresponds to diastolic blood pressure. A low tension pulse pulsus mollis , the vessel is soft or impalpable between beats. In high tension pulse pulsus durus , vessels feel rigid even between pulse beats. Form[ edit ] A form or contour of a pulse is palpatiory estimation of arteriogram. A quickly rising and quickly falling pulse pulsus celer is seen in aortic regurgitation.

Cardiac Cycle - Isovolumetric Relaxation (Phase 5)

Cardiac Cycle - Isovolumetric Relaxation Phase 5 All Valves Closed When the intraventricular pressures fall sufficiently at the end of phase 4, the aortic and pulmonic valves abruptly close aortic precedes pulmonic causing the second heart sound S2 and the beginning of isovolumetric relaxation. Valve closure is associated with a small backflow of blood into the ventricles and a characteristic notch incisura or dicrotic notch in the aortic and pulmonary artery pressure tracings. After valve closure, the aortic and pulmonary artery pressures rise slightly dicrotic wave following by a slow decline in pressure. The rate of pressure decline in the ventricles is determined by the rate of relaxation of the muscle fibers, which is termed lusitropy. This relaxation is regulated largely by the sarcoplasmic reticulum that are responsible for rapidly re-sequestering calcium following contraction see excitation-contraction coupling. Although ventricular pressures decrease during this phase, volumes do not change because all valves are closed.
