The conducted marketing researches made it possible to draw a conclusion on the principle possibility of using two pulse pressure sensors in such conditions: DPX 101-5K by OMEGA Company (USA) with a sensitivity of 0.
Based on Table 4, which shows the baseline biochemical and inflammatory statusin the participants, CK, heart rate (HR), and pulse pressure have significant differences between the two groups.
Change in pulse pressure from baseline showed an average 1.
No significant changes were observed in blood pressures, resting heart rate, aortic pulse wave velocity, aortic augmentation index-75, aortic pulse pressure, brachial pulse pressure, basal metabolic rate, total body water, fat-free mass, and echocardiographic parameters (p>0.
The average values of pulse pressure (PP) during activity, rest and 24 hour period were compared with the PP obtained from the average values of the office BP.
By the WHO definition, a diagnosis of dengue hemorrhagic fever requires the presence of fever for at least 2-7 days, hemorrhagic tendencies, thrombocytopenia, and evidence and signs of plasma leakage; dengue shock syndrome requires these, as well as evidence of circulatory failure, such as rapid and weak pulse, narrow pulse pressure, hypotension, and shock.
The former may be estimated by pulse pressure (PP), which represents blood pressure variation.
Radar antennas will log the pulse pressure wave that occurs with each heartbeat; algorithms will then derive blood pressure by considering the speed of this wave over the distance between the two antennas.
