EN The shape of the arterial pulsations depends upon the thickness of the blood vessels and contractility of the heart as well as the state of the vascular smooth muscle in the vessel wall. Photoplethysmography (PPG) is by definition an optoelectronic method for measuring and recording changes in volume of a body part. The shape and stability of the PPG waveform can be used as an indication of possible motion artifacts or low perfusion conditions. Furthermore, the photoplethysmogram reveals circulatory depression and arrhythmia. In the paper we propose a system that allows wireless transmitting of peripheral arterial pulse waveforms with use of a GPRS network. Selected examples of results, which were obtained during investigations made on a number of real PPG signals, are presented.
