Abstract:

A pregnant woman must undergoes several tests for measuring some physiological parameters like hemoglobin, pulse rate and others. This becomes important to reduce mortality rate of pregnant women and neonates specially in rural areas. In this proposed method, a non-invasive method for measurement of hemoglobin, oxygen saturation and pulse rate is described. The method proposed uses photoplethysmographic (PPG) signals obtained by illuminating a finger with monochromatic light at two different wavelengths. An empirical equation for calculation of Hb, SpO2 and pulse rate in blood is derived. We have tested our proposed prototype on 41 normal subjects for pulse rate and hemoglobin and the results are compared by clinical methods. The average error rate for pulse rate and hemoglobin are 1.633 and 0.777. Similarly prototype was tested on 5 pregnant women for hemoglobin and then compared with clinical methods. The percentage error found is 0.654.
