Abstract

This book gathers the contributions of experts in ambulatory blood pressure and heart rate monitoring taken from both the biomedical and the engineering environment. The experts focus mainly on: (i) the methodology of ambulatory blood pressure and heart rate analyses; (ii) the mathematical models that can be derived from the data and the implications they have for the understanding of normal and deranged cardiovascular control; (iii) the present and future use of computer analysis of dynamically collected observations for the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases. Methodological aspects related to the processing of blood pressure signals, with emphasis on the most advanced techniques for the dynamical evaluation of the time-domain and frequency-domain characteristics of blood pressure, are discussed. Physiological and mathematical modelling of the mechanisms controlling the cardiovascular system and potential and practical applications of these advanced techniques and models in clinics are examined.
