Hey all, I'm doing this for a research project... I'm looking for an algorithm that can get the systolic and diastolic blood pressure using the oscillometric technique. I found techniques which find the blood pressured by first finding the max amplitude of the oscillometric wave and then finding systolic and diastolic pressure by finding points on the wave corresponding to certain ratios of that amplitude. I was wondering if there are other techniques because I'm not getting this one to work so well.
