Relationship between some Factors, Mechanisms and the Quantitative Ballistocardiogram (BCG)
In order to establish the value and the possibilities of the quantitative ballistocardiography (3) in the examination of the cardiovascular system we studied some factors and mechanisms influencing characteristic quantities of the BCG related to the reproducibility and reliability of the method. In 26 subjects we performed BCG measurements with a 24 hours interval. Differences were not statistically significant and correlation coefficients were in the ranges of 0, 83 – 0, 89. Very good reproducibility and reliability of the method was proved, the best one of the parameter systolic force (F̄/kg).
