  • Bloody technology: the sphygmograph in asylum practice. [Historical Article]
    Hist Psychiatry 2017; 28(3):297-310Wallis J
  • The sphygmograph, an instrument to measure and visually chart the pulse, was used by a number of asylum researchers in the late nineteenth century in an attempt to better understand mental disease. In charting the use of such a medical technology in the asylum, this article explores the utility of a practice-oriented approach in the history of psychiatry - as a window onto the alienist profession…
  • On the Theory of the Sphygmograph. [Journal Article]
    Sci Context 2016; 29(4):435-440Mach E
  • Many debates have already taken place on the reliability of the results obtained by means of sphygmographs. The following remarks may contribute to clarify some still unsettled points.
  • Ernst Mach Invents a New Sphygmograph. [Journal Article]
    Sci Context 2016; 29(4):379-407Métraux A
  • Argument The sphygmograph as designed and tested by Jules-Étienne Marey - an apparatus destined to write pulse tracings on paper - revolutionized medical diagnostics in the early 1860s. Since the accuracy with which this device registered and objectified the pulse was controversial from the outset, the young scholar Ernst Mach (soon to become a leading theoretician and philosopher) decided to tho…
  • Blood pressure measurement: lessons learned from our ancestors. [Historical Article]
    Curr Pharm Des 2015; 21(6):700-4Karamanou M, Papaioannou TG, … Androutsos G
  • The profound observations of William Harvey (1578-1657), in blood circulation and the progress of physical science laid the foundation for the development of the Iatrophysical School that contributed to the evolution of clinical sphygmomanometry. The pioneer work of Reverend Stephen Hales (1677-1761) demonstrated the dynamics of the vascular system. One century later the French physician Jean-Léo…
  • [Study of the TCM acceleration sphygmograph based on high-precision calculation]. [Journal Article]
    Sheng Wu Yi Xue Gong Cheng Xue Za Zhi 2012; 29(5):872-5Zhao H, Jiang Y, Ye J
  • In order to get more pulse diagram valuable information, we summarized the traditional acceleration in the pulse chart based on the calculation of a new high-precision calculation of the acceleration pulse graph algorithms, being suitable for a large amount of data to adapt to requirements of high-resolution digital pulse diagram analysis, optimizing the acceleration pulse mapping process, reduci…
  • Acupuncture effects on the pulse spectrum of radial pressure pulse in dyspepsia. [Clinical Trial]
    Am J Chin Med 2012; 40(3):443-54Huang CM, Chang HC, … Kao ST
  • This study is to investigate the influences of acupuncture for dyspepsia on the Radial Pressure Pulse (RPP) between the Chun, Guan and Chy positions of the right/left wrist. Two series of experiments were designed; for the first series, 30 patients with dyspepsia (Group P) and 30 normal subjects (Group N) were seated to undergo the measurements of pulse pressure waveforms from radial artery by sp…
  • Application of sphygmography to detection of dyspepsia and the rhinitis. [Controlled Clinical Trial]
    Am J Chin Med 2011; 39(2):271-85Huang CM, Chang HC, … Chen C
  • Diagnosis by radial arterial pulse is very important in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of detection time and position on the parameters of time- and frequency-domain of radial pulse wave and to differentiate between Dyspepsia and Rhinitis by the statistical analysis of two signal types. A sphygmograph was developed to record radial press…
