Detection of Cardiovascular Parameters with LDV

Detection of Cardiovascular Parameters with LDV

Laura Mignanelli, M.Sc.

Analysis of the vibrations generated by the human body

State of the art/Motivation
  • The heartbeat originates characteristic vibrations on the thorax which can be measured with a Laser-Doppler-Vibrometer (LDV)
  • The detection of the heartrate, heartrate variability and the pulse wave velocity etc. were already demonstrated
  • The detection of the PR time is also possible
Aim of the work
  • Comprehensive understanding of how and with what uncertainty vibration measurements on the human body can be used for medical diagnosis
Methods
  • Application of a single point vibrometer and a robot supported scanning-vibrometer
  • Comparison of the vibration signals with electrocardiographic signals
  • Development of algorithms for parameter recognition
  • Analysis of the influence of the measuring condition for the determination of the characteristic parameters
  • Multichannel-Vibrometer to study the vibration in several points
  • Analysis of 3D vibration direction with multichannel vibrometer
Results
  • In addition to the heartbeat, the detection of the contraction of the atria can be identified
  • Detection of AV-blocks with the Laser Doppler vibrometry is possible
  • Recommended settings for filters and set up are obtained
  • The velocity vector of skin movement changes direction during a complete heartbeat: no uniform measurement direction
  • Determination of the uncertainty contribution of the laser beam orientation for laser Doppler vibrometer measurements on the carotid artery
Outlook
  • Use the vibrations generated in the human body for medical diagnosis
  • Determination of the uncertainty contribution of laser beam orientation for laser Doppler vibrometer measurements on the chest
  • Investigation of the dependence of vibration on anatomical and physiological features
