Abstract

In this work we addressed the problem to determine the set of functions that representatively describe 24h blood pressure and heart rate waveforms in the population of hypertensive patients. Curve fitting was conducted both for a set of linear and non-linear equations. The aim of the study was to investigate the probability to reproduce easily the 24h intra-arterial waveform if the corresponding extra-arterial waveform was available. 1 Introduction Blood Pressure and Heart Rate measurements derived either from twenty-four hour intr a-arterial or ambulatory monitoring are of special interest in cardiological treatment. These measurements form time series which are governed by some functions of the passage of time. In this study, we addressed the problem to exploit 24-ho
