I have an A/D converter and software that stores binary data for
digitized arterial blood pressure values (direct arterial) in a readily
accessible file. I am looking for an algorithm, preferably in C but most
any common language or pseudo-language will do, to take this file as an
input stream and convert the pressure wave values into mean arterial
pressure values. That is, I have systolic and diastolic and heart rate
info directly from the file, but I want an algorithm that will allow me
to calculate mean arterial pressures on selected portions of this file.
I don't really need anything fancy, just the way to get from the raw
pressure wave to a MAP. Any other filtering, as for stability, would be
gravy, but I can handle that if need be.
Thanks for any leads...
