Abstract

An arterial tonometer that allows you to determine the pressure in the shoulder from the pulse wave of the radial artery without squeezing the vessels with a cuff, today remains an unattainable goal of many researchers due to the lack of suitable pulse wave sensors (PV). The article describes a mobile medicine device, which is a kind of “smart watch” with its original function of a human pulse wave analyzer. This function has become possible due to an introduction of a matrix fiber-optic sensor (MFOS) developed by a team of Russian scientists at the A. A. Blagonravov IMASH at the Russian Academy of Sciences. Features of the device that distinguish it from existing analogues are given below: 1) Capability to determine blood pressure with medical accuracy without squeezing blood vessels with a cuff, 2) Capability to diagnose the cardiovascular system and assess its condition taking into account the age of a person, 3) Capability to diagnose all human organ systems using spectral analysis of heart rate variability, 4) Capability to determine the code (modulation frequency) corresponding to the established disease after the diagnosis is established using this gadget, and to carry out targeted delivery of an increased amount of blood to the affected organ, 5) Capability to perform high-quality monitoring of blood pressure (over time). After diagnosis, the gadget determines the code (modulation frequency) corresponding to the established disease and promotes targeted delivery of an increased amount of blood to the affected organ. Treatment is carried out by organizing a certain respiratory rate, which, in turn, generates certain modulations of the heart rate. As a result, the affected organ receives an additional amount of blood and recovers.
