Prakash Dirshanapu, Jatoth Ravi Kumar . Performance of SuperSTAT Method of Non Invasive Blood Pressure (NIBP) Measurement Technique at Different Inflation Levels. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 9, 1 ( June 2015), 14-17. DOI=10.5120/ijais15-451356
The purpose of this paper is to analyze the performance of oscillometric based super STAT method which is used to determine automatic Non Invasive Blood Pressure (NIBP). Mainly four target cuff pressures are chosen in the range of 115mmHg to 160mmHg and at each target cuff pressure the NIBP parameters are measured from 10 numbers of subjects which are performed on left and rights hands and recorded. Eventually the correlation graph is plotted for systolic, diastolic, MAP (Mean Arterial pressure) and pulse readings using statistical analysis tools. The results of the correlation plot states that systolic, diastolic and MAP are moderately correlated at low target inflation cuff pressure and in the range of 135mmHg to 160mmHg cuff inflation pressure the correlation is high between left and right hand NIBP determinations. Pulse measurements are highly correlated at all the cuff inflation levels. Thus the super STAT algorithm gains better accuracy over basic oscillometric method of NIBP determination.
