Title
(EN) METHOD AND MEANS FOR MEASURING SYSTOLIC BLOOD PRESSURE IN THE ANKLE
(FR) PROCEDE ET ELEMENTS DESTINES A MESURER LA PRESSION SANGUINE SYSTOLIQUE DANS LA CHEVILLE
Abstract
(EN) A flexible pad for measuring systolic ankle blood pressure comprises two or more pairs of light emitting diodes and photo detectors. The pairs are disposed in parallel. The detectors are adapted for detecting light emitted by the respective diode into tissue and reflected from there. The pad further comprises conductor means for providing power to the light emitting diodes from a power source and means selected from conducting means and wireless means for putting the detectors in communication with electronic equipment for detector signal analysis. Also disclosed is the combination of the pad and an inflatable cuff, and a method for measuring systolic ankle blood pressure.
(FR) L'invention concerne un tampon souple destiné à mesurer la pression sanguine systolique de la cheville comprenant deux ou plusieurs paires de diodes électroluminescentes et des photodétecteurs. Les paires sont disposées en parallèle. Les détecteurs sont conçus de manière à détecter de la lumière émise par les diodes respectives dans les tissus et réfléchie par ceux-ci. Le tampon comprend en outre des éléments conducteurs destinés à alimenter en puissance les diodes électroluminescentes à partir d'une source d'alimentation et des éléments choisis parmi des éléments conducteurs et des éléments sans fil afin de placer les détecteurs en communication avec un dispositif électronique pour une analyse des signaux détecteurs. L'invention concerne également la combinaison du tampon et d'un manchon gonflable, et un procédé destiné à mesurer la pression sanguine systolique de la cheville.
