Peripheral Pulse Analyzer
Overview

Peripheral Pulse Analyzer, a computer based System developed at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, for the study of physiological variabilities has unique feature that it yields heart rate variability, respiration rate variability, cardiac output variability and peripheral blood flow variability from a single data acquisition session from the patient. The data acquisition is controlled by the PC, serially connected to the acquisition unit. The variability analysis and transfer to database is performed by the PC with the help of Peripheral Pulse Analyzer package in post processing module.

SALIENT FEATURES

  • User friendly.

  • Easy & faster data entry and retrieval from Access/Excel Database.

  • Easy adaptability by clinicians/ medical practitioners.

  • Comparison facility of the data from the same disease group and with the normal group

  • Analysis of the data in the validation phase, user defined reports/queries for comparison of variability of different disease groups.

  • Pictorial representation in the form of graph for comparing changes (increase/decrease) in the parameters (peak amplitude) for all variability and for all disease can be obtained to view the whole data at a glance.

  • Queries are being used for finding out number of patients, average and standard deviation of a particular disease group.

  • Till the frequency ranges are established for LF1, LF2, MF1, MF2, HF1 and HF2, flexibility to set the frequency ranges so that peak can be shifted automatically.

  • Future expandability to accommodate new fields, variables, reports or queries.

  • Future support for employing fuzzy logic or neural network approach to incorporate automatic machine generated report on the patient.

APPLICATION AREAS

  • Helpful in studying Physiological Variability.

  • Helpful in Studying Autonomous Nervous System.

  • Helpful in finding the effects of Allopathic/ Ayurvedic/ Homeopathic Medicines on the patients.

Detail Technical Brochure

Variability is the sign of life; therefore higher variability in physiological parameters is generally an indicator of better health. The use of variability for the diagnosis of several diseases is age old. Because of great potential of this technique, heart rate variability monitoring is a routine feature in the patient monitoring systems available in the market for employment in intensive care units and intensive cardiac care units. Bhabha Atomic Research Centre has introduced respiration rate variability, cardiac output/ peripheral blood flow variability; integrated them with heart rate variability and study these changes in variety of diseases.
