%X In this paper, algorithm estimating the blood pressure
was proposed using the pulse transit time (PTT) as a more convenient
method of measuring the blood pressure. After measuring ECG and
pressure pulse, and photoplethysmography, the PTT was calculated
from the acquired signals. Thereafter, the system to indirectly measure
the systolic pressure and the diastolic pressure was composed using
the statistic method. In comparison between the blood pressure
indirectly measured by proposed algorithm estimating the blood
pressure and real blood pressure measured by conventional
sphygmomanometer, the systolic pressure indicates the mean error of
±3.24mmHg and the standard deviation of 2.53mmHg, while the
diastolic pressure indicates the satisfactory result, that is, the mean
error of ±1.80mmHg and the standard deviation of 1.39mmHg. These
results are satisfied with the regulation of ANSI/AAMI for
certification of sphygmomanometer that real measurement error value
should be within the mean error of ±5mmHg and the standard
deviation of 8mmHg. These results are suggest the possibility of
applying to portable and long time blood pressure monitoring system
