Presentation Title: Arterial Blood Pressure Estimation By Electrical Recording
Abstract: This research aims to explore a novel form of recording continuous blood pressure through an implanted device. Blood pressure is consistently examined for its tie to overall body health. Significant differences in blood pressure such as in hypertension and hypotension can lead to drastic complications. Previous literature has found correlations between blood pressure variability and other chronic conditions as well as mortality. Despite recent neuroprosthetic research finding success using baroreceptor stimulation to modulate blood pressure, all these devices use passive stimulation to lower blood pressure. Blood pressure modulation does not have a feedback system for any specific increase in blood pressure. Our approach explores the implementation of a cuff electrode to estimate blood pressure. Successful results would provide a tool for an individual to passively track their blood pressure patterns without the use of any external devices.
