Abstract

Ambulatory monitoring of signals, related to cardiovascular system performances, is one of the biomedical technologies of wider interest. The wide distribution of ambulatory monitoring is not yet well supported by commonly accepted criteria of clinical interpretation, by an assessment of the minimal requirements for instrumentation performances, or by indications of cost - benefit figures in relation to different situations. The Biomedical Engineering Standing Group of the Committee for Medical and Public Health Research approved the organisation of a workshop, which was held in Pisa (April 11-12, 1983). 30 out of 34 papers presented there are published in this book; they are Transducers and analysis systems for ambulatory monitoring; clinical applications; recent advances of methods for the ambulatory monitoring of the cardiovascular system; further applications of ambulatory monitoring and technological perspectives. The opinion of the participants was that coordination of efforts would be useful.
