Abstract: When a user uses a finger to press and hold a first candidate display area, the first candidate display area is enclosed in a selection frame (W1), a simple window (W10) is displayed, and analysis results relating to a first candidate segment waveform are displayed in this simple window (W10). Analysis results can therefore be confirmed without switching screens and, as a result, inspection results can be confirmed with fewer steps and an electrocardiographic waveform and analysis results therefor can be compared on the same screen.

Information useful to predict the possibility of the occurrence of fatal arrhythmia, such as the position of the maximum excitation propagation point, the distribution of the late potential(LP) as an index of depolarization abnormality, and the distribution of the RT dispersion as an index of repolarization abnormality are displayed together with the estimated contour positions.
Abstract: Disclosed is a sphygmomanometer exhaust valve having a valve that functions as a lever, and in which a solenoid moves the point of force of the valve to urge a valve membrane formed at the point of action against a ventilation port. A support member supports the valve while fixing its fulcrum. When no electric current is supplied to the solenoid, the support member holds the valve in a predetermined position in which the ventilation port is open.

Abstract: A blood pressure monitoring apparatus which continuously estimates and monitors the blood pressure by using the pulse wave propagation time can accurately estimate the blood pressure. While an estimated blood pressure is continuously calculated by using the pulse wave propagation time, the correlation between the pulse wave propagation time and the interval between feature points contained in two consecutive heart beat waveforms of an electrocardiogram is monitored. If the correlation is reversed, the blood pressure is actually measured, and the estimated blood pressure is corrected on the basis of the difference between the estimated blood pressure and actually measured blood pressure.

The blood pressure measuring apparatus achieves a high-speed measurement while suppressing the reduction of accuracy.

Abstract: In blood pressure monitoring apparatus which continuously estimates and monitors blood pressure by using the pulse wave propagation time, blood pressure fluctuation can be accurately estimated. If both blood pressure estimated from the pulse wave propagation time and a waveform parameter obtained from the accelerated pulse wave have abnormal values, it is determined that the blood pressure is truly fluctuating, and blood pressure measurement by another method, e.g., blood pressure measurement using a cuff is performed.
