Abstract: Deaths due to cardiovascular diseases are increasing worldwide, and multi-signal monitoring systems to diagnose such diseases are under development. However, only a few researches are underway for devices that monitor hemodynamic energy, which is a marker for pulsatile flow generated by the contraction and relaxation of the heart. Therefore, this study aimed to integrate multiple monitoring devices into a single device, while also incorporating hemodynamic energy monitoring. Blood pressure and flow were measured with two channels each, while electrocardiogram (ECG), photoplethysmography (PPG), and temperature were measured with one channel each. All signals were processed at hardware level, and then converted into analog voltage. The seven signals were then converted into digital signals with a data acquisition board (DAQ). The software was developed with Labview™ (National Instruments, U.S.A) to form a graphic user interface (GUI) on a tablet computer (ACER, U.S.A) through USB 2.0, to allow for monitoring and analysis of the signals obtained. Development of this system successfully formed a multi-signal monitoring system that integrates multiple signals into one device. Future directions include development of cardiovascular diagnosis algorithm and evaluation of the system via preclinical animal experiments.
