Single lead Photoplethysmography (PPG) device for real-time body hemodynamic parameters monitoring of ICU patients


Infection of COVID-19 disease can lead to severe pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, sepsis, septic shock and death. This condition requires immediate emergency medical attention because it develops within short time span and need to be treated in intensive care units (ICU). Difficulty or shortness in breathing causes poor oxygen supply to the various parts of the body. Due to the poor supply of oxygen, the body hemodynamic parameters like heartbeat rate, blood oxygen saturation, systolic blood pressure, mean arterial blood pressure perfusion index and respiratory rate gets alter to maintain physiological conditions of the critical patient which may lead to complications or death. Therefore, we have proposed single lead PPG sensor based device which monitors all these relevant hemodynamic parameters at bedside in real-time non-invasively could possibly help to improve, accelerate treatment planning and able to monitor patents response towards drugs of COVID-19.
