Paper Abstract

A novel few-mode fiber based sensor for monitoring the vital signs of pulse (heart rate), and breathing rate (respiratory rate) was developed. The sensor was applied in non-invasive measurement of pulse and breathing rates. The pulse, breathing and even body movement affected the sensor’s output as the strain on the few-mode fiber changed with these activities. This sensor has simple structure and easy to fabricate. Its signal is easy to monitor. It can be used in the medical equipment in what situation non-invasive realtime monitoring and measurement of pulse rate, and respiratory/body movement pattern of healthy subjects are required.
