Abstract

With a new photoplethysmographic (PPG) device we have been attending to photoplethysmographic signals of different ages for signal decomposition purpose. Because PPG is a non-invasive, and easily attachable measurement technique both suitable in health care applications we concentrated on its comprehensive signal analysis and waveform interpretation. By means of PPG it is easy to capture data for further analysis. In the world cardiovascular diseases are the frequent cause of death that’s why we are concern on cardiovascular diseases. The main cause of incidents can be high arterial stiffness which is symptomless and increases the risk as a function of age causing cardiovascular diseases. Arteries stiffen normally as a consequence of age, but also because of insalubrious mores and many diseases. Normal age related stiffness occurs when the elastic fibers within the arterial walls begin to weaken due to age, but diseases as arteriosclerosis accelerate this process. However, we believe that it is possible to prevent arterial stiffening if detected early enough. For this reason we have derived indexes to indicate a possible arterial stiffness value.
