Abstract

Cardiovascular diseases are one of the major causes of death. Regular
checkups and preventive actions can drastically help reducing fatal
incidences. This can be achieved by monitoring the carotid artery or
rather the carotid pulse signal. Commonly, ultrasound devices are used
for that purpose. However, these devices are costly, mostly stationary
and their usage requires training and experience. This paper
investigates the possible usage of radar systems as a contactless and
low-cost alternative for carotid pulse measurements. Theoretical
investigations reveal a linear relationship between the measurands of
both devices and synchronous recordings from three test persons further
confirm the feasibility of using radar systems as a potential device for
monitoring cardiovascular diseases.
