Abstract

Peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) of increasing severity can lead progressively to disabling claudication, ischemic rest pain and gangrene. The blood supply of a limb with peripheral arterial disease is restored by surgical operations, which treats the critical limb ischemia (CLI) only in 30% of the cases. CLI occurs when the arterial lumen decreases significantly and the nutritive requirements of the tissues, supplied by microcirculation, cannot be met. In the present paper, a simple, non-invasive and low-cost technique is proposed for early screening diagnosis of PAOD. The approach is based on the investigation of the spectral characteristics of pulse waves measured by photoplethysmography. Painless, versatility and simplicity are significant merits of the proposed methodology.
