Pulse Plethysmography—detecting blood volume changes—is most commonly recorded with a plethysmograph (PPG). Good data recording techniques and the right selection of tools is crucial to acquiring reliable and repeatable results for a wide array of life science applications including Psychophysiology, Exercise Physiology, Sleep Studies, and more. In this event we will discuss the pros and cons of different recording areas, proper techniques and tools, and artifact and data analysis strategies.
Join Alex Dimov from BIOPAC to learn how to record great plethysmography data. Learn about wired and wireless PPG recording options for a variety of body locations, and use in the MRI. Alex will demonstrate how to set up a pulse plethysmography experiment and show you how to identify good and bad data. He will also discuss techniques to get you started with basic analysis.
What You Will Learn:
Hardware options for recording pulse plethysmography
How to record a good quality signal with a pulse transducer
How to calculate heart rate from pulse and manage artifacts
How to calculate pulse transit time
Volumetric vs. relative measurements
Comparisons to ECG recording
Plus, a Live Demonstration of Lab Equipment!

Why do we so easily believe Fake News? 68% of Americans find their news through social media, and the prevalence of incomplete or deceptive news stories dubbed “fake news” has wormed its way into the fabric of modern-day media. In an effort to study how social media based news is perceived, this study measured physiological […]
Comparing Diaphragm Tissue Between Healthy and Ill Patients The human diaphragm is one of the primary muscles used in respiration, contracting and expanding to control breathing. To measure how much diaphragms move for critically ill patients (in an Intensive Care Unit) compared to diaphragms in a healthy subject, patients at “Papageorgiou” General Hospital in Thessaloniki, […]
