DICROTIC NOTCH PDF

This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Photoplethysmography PPG is used to estimate the skin blood flow using infrared light. Researchers from different domains of science have become increasingly interested in PPG because of its advantages as non-invasive, inexpensive, and convenient diagnostic tool. Traditionally, it measures the oxygen saturation, blood pressure, cardiac output, and for assessing autonomic functions. Moreover, PPG is a promising technique for early screening of various atherosclerotic pathologies and could be helpful for regular GP-assessment but a full understanding of the diagnostic value of the different features is still lacking.

Recent studies emphasise the potential information embedded in the PPG waveform signal and it deserves further attention for its possible applications beyond pulse oximetry and heart-rate calculation.

Therefore, this overview discusses different types of artifact added to PPG signal, characteristic features of PPG waveform, and existing indexes to evaluate for diagnoses. Keywords: Photoplethysmography, acceleration plethysmogram, second derivative plethysmogram, digital volume pulse, ageing, artery, autonomic function, blood pressure, cardiovascular, heart rate, pulse wave analysis, vascular disease.

Various types of plethysmograph exist, and each of them measures the changes in blood volume in a different manner with a specific transducer and has certain applications [ 3 ]. Table I. Types of Plethysmograph and Its Application Type.

Cardiac Cycle - Isovolumetric Relaxation Phase 5 All Valves Closed When the intraventricular pressures fall sufficiently at the end of phase 4, the aortic and pulmonic valves abruptly close aortic precedes pulmonic causing the second heart sound S2 and the beginning of isovolumetric relaxation. Valve closure is associated with a small backflow of blood into the ventricles and a characteristic notch incisura or dicrotic notch in the aortic and pulmonary artery pressure tracings. After valve closure, the aortic and pulmonary artery pressures rise slightly dicrotic wave following by a slow decline in pressure. The rate of pressure decline in the ventricles is determined by the rate of relaxation of the muscle fibers, which is termed lusitropy.

Cardiac Cycle - Isovolumetric Relaxation (Phase 5)

Open in new tab Download slide Arterial pressure in a patient with severe sepsis. Note the effects of vasodilatation on the position of the dicrotic notch. The solid arrow indicates where one would expect to see the notch approximately one-third the way down the descending limb and the dashed arrow shows where the notch was actually seen. The considerable delay in the timing of the dicrotic notch makes the secondary dicrotic wave appear almost as a separate and distinct wave. All the distinct properties of vasodilatation, reduced SP, reduced DP, widened PP, and a delayed dicrotic notch, are evident in this example.
