Abstract
A NEW APPARATUS PROVIDING THE ABILITY TO MEASURE THE BLOOD PRESSURE OF ASTRONAUTS WITHOUT ENCUMBERING THEIR MOVEMENTS IS DESCRIBED. IT USESX A NOVEL BILATERAL PIEZOELECTRIC ARRAY/MICROPROCESSOR SYSTEM (PAAPMS) WHICH MEASURES THE BLOOD PRESSURE AT THE SUPERFICIAL TEMPORAL ARTERY. BLOOD FLOW COMPUTER BASED MODELING OF CIRCULATION FROM THE HEART TO THE TEMPLE DEVELOPED BY AN AFFILIATE COMPANY UNDER AN AIRFORCE SBIR AWARD, HAS PROVIDED THE DATA WHICH VERIFIES THE VIABILITY OF THE APPARATUS PROPOSED. THE USE OF A MULTI-SENSOR ARRAY PROVIDES BOTH NOISE CANCELLATION AND SIMPLIFIES THE SIGNAL PROCESSING CIRCUITRY NECESSARY FOR DISPLAY ON A SPACECRAFT MICROCOMPUTER OR FOR GROUND BASED TELEMETRY MONITORING.
