Development of Application Software for Features Extraction from Peripheral Pulse Waveform

Janisha C John | Sameern Fatma Syed | Nishant B. Patil


Abstract: Features extraction from the detected characteristic points of peripheral pulse signal is done for further analysis. In this paper, method of characteristic point detection and extraction of various features such as amplitude and time interval between the points of peripheral pulses has been proposed. The peripheral pulse impedance data has been obtained by Peripheral Pulse Analyzer (PPA). Developed by the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Trombay, Mumbai. Peripheral pulse is due to the blood moving away from the heart and vessels at high pressure. Peripheral pulses are clinically useful in identifying specific vascular pathologies, including peripheral arterial disease, vasculitis, congenital abnormalities, and others. It is observed that the amplitude of characteristics points in diseased subject are slightly lesser than the healthy subjects, in other hand the time intervals are also found to be lesser in diseased subject as compared to the healthy subjects. The features have been extracted through the use of developed application software which has been programmed using the python programming language.
