Abstract

This paper describes an arterial blood pressure waveform simulator which can allow a hospital staff member to check quickly, inexpensively, and accurately for proper blood pressure amplifier operation. The simulator can be constructed by the biomedical engineering staff in one day for less than fifty dollars. After the balanced and calibrated simulator is connected to the blood pressure amplifier input, the simulator will generate an arterial pressure waveform with a 120 mm Hg systolic pressure, 80 mm Hg diastolic pressure, 95 mm Hg mean pressure, and a dichrotic notch.
