  • IEEE Standard for Wearable Cuffless Blood Pressure Measuring Devices

    IEEE Std 1708 establishes a normative definition of wearable cuffless blood pressure (BP) measuring devices and the objective performance evaluation of this kind of device. The standard is independent of the form of the device or the vehicle to which the device is attached or in which it is embedded. The standard is applicable to all types of wearable BP measurement devices including epidermal and unobtrusive BP devices that have different modes of operation (e.g., to measure short-term, long-term, snapshot, continuous, beat(s)-to-beat(s) BP, or BP variability). This standard is, however, limited to evaluation of devices that do not use a cuff during measurement and do not cover evaluation of all sphygmomanometers that are used with an occluding or inflatable cuff for the indirect determination of BP on the upper arm or wrist. This standard provides guidelines for manufacturers to qualify and validate their products, potential purchasers or users to evaluate and select prospective products, and health care professionals to understand the manufacturing practices on wearable BP devices.

In this study, we developed the prototype of cuff-less blood pressure monitor to validate cuff-less BP estimation algorithm. Sixteen subjects were participated in the experiment to test the accuracy of the device compared to the cuff- based BP monitor using oscillometric method. Experimental results using Bland- Altman plot showed that the mean and standard deviation of error of systolic BP (SBP) and diastolic BP (DBP) were 0.3±6.6 and 1.7±9.1 respectively.

  • Developing IEEE medical device standards: A case study, wearable cuffless blood pressure measuring devices

    This session will provide a brief overview of the IEEE Standards development process from securing sponsorship, submitting the project authorization request (PAR), forming the working group, to drafting the standard. The process continues with the invitation-to-ballot, then the Review Committee evaluation and finally, the Final Vote from the Standards Board. As an example, the session will include a case study with a tutorial presentation on the current work-in-progress IEEE P1708, "Draft Standard for Wearable Cuffless Blood Pressure Measuring Devices."

  • Modeling of the Cuffless Blood Pressure Measurement Errors for the Evaluation of a Wearable Medical Device

    The two widely used standards for validating the conventional cuff-based BP devices are those set up by the American Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) and the British Hypertension Society (BHS) respectively. It was reported that although both standards work well for most BP devices, they do not agree with each other in all circumstances. Previous attempts to model the measurement errors as Gaussian could not explain the phenomena. Results of this study indicate that the general t distribution fits better to the BP measurement errors reported in previous literatures and collected from our clinical experiments. Furthermore, the theoretical mapping of the AAMI accuracy criteria and BHS grading system derived from the t distribution model can better reflect the real situations, where some devices can pass the BHS criteria but fail that of the AAMI. Based on this mapping relationship, it is found that current standards work well for devices with error distribution close to Gaussian but they may not be suitable for the newly developed wearable BP measuring devices used in the experiment, where the errors followed a t distribution with a smaller degree of freedom. It is suggested that a statistical measure that takes into account both the probability and the absolute value of the extreme errors could be introduced into the standard in order to better evaluate this kind of wearable, cuffless BP measuring devices.

  • A preliminary study on multi-wavelength PPG based pulse transit time detection for cuffless blood pressure measurement

    Pulse transit time (PTT) has been widely studied as an index of blood pressure (BP) changes. In recent years, some prototypes of PTT-based wearable BP measurement devices have been developed, which can relieve users from the discomfort caused by the inflating cuff used in auscultatory and oscillometric BP measurement techniques. However, in the common practice for PTT detection, multi-site sensor implementation on human body is required, making it difficult for the integration of wearable devices. Since multi-wavelength (MW) photoplethysmogram (PPG) signals carry blood pulsation information of different blood vessels embedded in different skin depths, the time difference between different wavelength PPG signals collected at the same body site can be treated as a special PTT on a short length of blood vessels beneath the skin. In this work, the time difference between MW PPG, denoted as PTT_MW, was explored to track BP changes as a substitute of infrared (IR) PTT_EP. (PTT_EP is the time interval between electrocardiogram (ECG) and IR PPG.) Ten healthy adult subjects participated in the experiment, and their continuous BP, ECG and fingertip MW PPG signals generated from blue, green, yellow and IR light were recorded after 2-minute static handgrip exercise at 33% maximal voluntary contraction. The results showed that the correlation between Systolic BP (SBP) and IR-Blue PTT_MW (|r|= 0.52) was comparable to the correlation between SBP and IR PTT_EP (|r|= 0.59). Moreover, we optimized the wavelength combination of PTT_MWs for each subject and found the average value of optimal correlation between SBP and PTT_MW reached 0.76, which was significantly (p<;0.01) higher than the correlation between IR PTT_EP and SBP. This study reveals that the time difference between MW PPG can be potentially used as PTT for cuffless BP measurement with its unique advantage in simple sensor implementation at only one body site.

  • A model-based calibration method for noninvasive and cuffless measurement of arterial blood pressure

    It has been accepted by some researchers that pulse transit time (PTT) is correlated with arterial blood pressure (ABP). However, the applications of PTT-based approach for BP measurement are limited due to the lack of convenient calibration method. This paper aims to propose an innovative model- based calibration system, which makes use of pressure change during air deflation of arm cuff to obtain the calibration curve for each individual. Experimental results on ten healthy subjects show that the derived calibration curve has good linearity (R=-0.90, p<0.05), which led to the acceptable prediction errors (1.1 plusmn 6.7 mm Hg for mean BP, 3.6 plusmn 6.9 mm Hg for systolic BP and 2.1 plusmn 8.2 mm Hg for diastolic BP) for the changed pressure of the tested subjects after exercise. The preliminary result indicates that the proposed calibration method is promising to be used for noninvasive and cuffless measurement of ABP in wearable device.
