Abstract

In this paper, we have proposed a simple procedure to identify the respiratory variations of humans during the strive conditions from the extracted PPG signals for clinical and intervention treatments. Protection of people who involve in dangerous and critical tasks is necessary to save their life using life guard systems. PPG is being used to recognize and interpret this common symptoms of the human body, using heart rate variability and respiration rate. In this experiment the deviations of respiratory rate from the normal to stressed state of a person is measured using the derived RIIV parameter extracted from the potential PPG signals. Significant amount of data taken for analysis from five different healthy subjects and are used in this research to ensure the coherence of raw PPG signal with the RIIV and additional experiments were done to ensure the stressful conditions has an impact on the respiratory rate.
