    Abstract

    Systolic and diastolic blood pressures (BPs) are important physiological parameters for disease diagnosis. Systolic and diastolic characteristic ratios derived from oscillometric pulse waveform have been widely used to estimate automated non-invasive BPs in oscillometric BP measurement devices. The oscillometric pulse waveform is easily influenced by respiration, which may cause variability to the characteristic ratios and subsequently BP measurement. This study quantitatively investigated how respiration patterns (i.e., normal breathing and deep breathing) affect the systolic and diastolic characteristic ratios. The study was performed with clinical data collected from 39 healthy subjects, and each subject conducted BP measurements during normal and deep breathings. Analytical results showed that the systolic characteristic ratio increased significantly from 0.52 ± 0.13 under normal breathing to 0.58 ± 0.14under deep breathing (p <; 0.05), and the diastolic characteristic ratio was not significantly affected from 0.75 ± 0.12 under normal breathing to 0.76 ± 0.13 under deep breathing (p = 0.48). In conclusion, deep breathing significantly affected the systolic characteristic ratio, suggesting that automated oscillometric BP device which is validated under resting condition should be strictly used for measurements under resting condition.
