IEEE EMBS Meeting and Seminar on Recent Advances in Blood Pressure Monitoring Technologies

Share

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) Baltimore Chapter is holding the first Virtual Chapter Meeting and Webinar, 2020. 


The IEEE EMBS (Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society) Chapters of the Baltimore Section, Washington, and Northern Virginia cordially invite you to attend our virtual meeting and seminar presentation. This event is also sponsored by the IEEE EMB Standards Committee and the IEEE Standards Association

Conventional blood pressure (BP) monitors require the use of a cuff. Advanced sensors and emerging technology in wearables have also led to the development of BP monitoring devices that do not use a cuff. Some devices have already received US FDA market clearance, more recently in the form of a smartwatch.  IEEE has published the first standard on Wearable, Cuffless Blood Pressure Monitoring Devices in 2014 (IEEE 1708-2014), and Amendment 1 was published late last year (IEEE 1708a-2019). 

We are excited to present Dr. Jin-Oh Hahn, an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, a Faculty Affiliate in the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices, and a Faculty Affiliate in the Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Scientific Computation (AMSC) Program at the University of Maryland. Dr. Hahn will give a talk about recent developments in cuff-based and cuff-less blood pressure monitoring techniques, with particular emphasis given to oscillometry and cuff-less approach based on the pulse transit time principle.  

***There is no Registration Fee. Guests are welcome. Students are welcome. However, we require everyone to register. Those who register will receive web-conferencing information a day or two before the event.***

Topic:

Recent Advances in Blood Pressure Monitoring Technologies

Hypertension is a prevalent cardiovascular disease that can be treated with life style change and medication therapy.  But, its detection is frequently missed due to the inaccuracy and inconvenience associated with today’s blood pressure measurement techniques.  This talk presents recent developments in cuff-based and cuff-less blood pressure monitoring techniques, with particular emphasis given to oscillometry and cuff-less approach based on the pulse transit time principle.  The talk will cover basic principles of these techniques as well as recent developments in (i) more accurate subject-specific oscillimetry, (ii) ballistocardiogram-based cuff-less blood pressure tracking, and (iii) smartphone-based blood pressure monitoring.

Biography:

Dr. Jin-Oh Hahn received BS and MS degrees in mechanical engineering from Seoul National University in 1997 and 1999, and PhD degree in mechanical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2008. He is currently with the University of Maryland, where he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, a Faculty Affiliate in the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices, and a Faculty Affiliate in the Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Scientific Computation (AMSC) Program. Dr. Hahn is a recipient of the IEEE EMBS Most Impactful Paper Award in 2019, Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation in 2018, the Best Paper Award from the Bio-Systems and Healthcare Technical Committee in the Dynamic Systems and Control Division of ASME in 2017, the Young Investigator Program Award from the Office of Naval Research in 2014, the Young Investigator Grant Award from the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association in 2013, and the Outstanding Gemstone Mentor Award from the Gemstone Honors Program at the University of Maryland in 2019. His current research interests include applications of dynamical systems and control theory to health monitoring, fault diagnostics, maintenance and treatment of dynamical systems with emphasis on health and medicine.
