|Abstract: ||More than 60 million Americans suffer from cardiovascular diseases. We focused on two important complications: Aneurysm and Renal Artery Stenosis. Existing methods to monitor the state of the patient’s cardiovascular system are expensive, invasive and infrequently used. We developed a device based on piezoelectric sensor that captures the blood pressure waveform and is capable of early detection of those diseases. This device is simple, safe, inexpensive and can be combined with standard ambulatory blood pressure tests. The detection, performed by Fourier and Wavelet analysis, helps to characterize arterial blood pressure waveform and detect pathologies. In the future this device may also allow improvement of titration of cardiovascular medications and patient outcome while reducing end-organ complication.|
