Abstract

The photoplethysmographic (PPG) signal measures the local variations of blood volume in tissues, reflecting the peripheral pulse modulated by cardiac activity, respiration, and other physiological effects. Therefore, PPG can be used to extract the vital cardiorespiratory signals like heart rate (HR), and respiratory rate (RR) and this will reduce the number of sensors connected to the patient's body for recording these vital signs. In this paper, we propose an algorithm based on ensemble empirical mode decomposition with principal component analysis (EEMD-PCA) as a novel approach to estimate HR and RR simultaneously from PPG signal. To examine the performance of the proposed algorithm, we us..
