Method and System for Measuring Dynamic Changes of Cardiac Pulse and Respiration Throughout Day/Night Cycle





Light-Independent Measuring Dynamic Changes of Cardiac Pulse and Respiration


Current State of the Art

Breathing or pulse monitoring of a baby in danger of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) or a sleep apnea patient typically employs a camera system (e.g., Close View Monitor System) or a movement/sound system (e.g., Angelcare Movement Sensor w. Sound Monitor). 


Problems with the Current Art

The problem with these systems is that they require constant attention by another person.


Advantages of Invention

The invention presented here relates to the rapid measurement of physiological parameters of humans particularly to a method for continuous measurement of dynamic changes of cardiac pulse and respiration rates throughout the day/night cycle using a night vision camera. The system is automatically monitored and sets off an alarm due to any abnormal pulse or breathing pattern.
