Pulse Wave Analysis by impedance plethysmography-PROJECT IDEA

The impedance of extremeeties such as fingers, arms and legs changes with the blood flow in and out, so this provides another method for plethysmography.
The arterial pulse wave has a very low amplitude and is superimposed on the venous blood volume changes. Pulse wave measurements are possible in many locations including the head (this measurement is called rheoencephalography). Pulse waves can also be measured in the fingers and toes with photoplethysmography.
