Submission Status: Open   |   Submission Deadline: 30 June 2024


Artery Research is calling for submissions to our collection on Wearable devices for BP and hemodynamics. Blood pressure and haemodynamic parameters are primary factors in human physiology and their continuous monitoring would dramatically improve our understanding of cardiovascular disease as well as its prediction and treatment, but this has been limited by technological challenges. Recent advances in smart wearable technology are now showing promising and exciting solutions for continuous tracking of haemodynamic parameters, including blood pressure, cardiac output, arterial stiffness, vascular resistance, pulse wave velocity, heart rate, cardiac disease etc. 

This Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 3.

About the collection

Artery Research is calling for submissions to our collection on Wearable devices for BP and hemodynamics. Blood pressure and haemodynamic parameters are primary factors in human physiology and their continuous monitoring would dramatically improve our understanding of cardiovascular disease as well as its prediction and treatment, but this has been limited by technological challenges. Recent advances in smart wearable technology are now showing promising and exciting solutions for continuous tracking of haemodynamic parameters, including blood pressure, cardiac output, arterial stiffness, vascular resistance, pulse wave velocity, heart rate, cardiac disease etc. 

This collection of articles aims to present recent advances within the field of smart wearable devices for blood pressure and hemodynamics. The call is open for any paper (systematic or narrative reviews, original research articles, and unique clinical cases) within the reach of the overall theme.

Suggestions for possible topics could include:

◉ Validation studies, or studies which aim to assess how novel wearables technologies estimate haemodynamic parameters in terms of accuracy, reproducibility, reliability etc.

◉ Clinical applications or cohort studies using novel wearable devices. Examples of applications may include, but are not limited to, tracking blood pressure for better detection of hypertension, tracking heart rate to identify cardiac arrhythmias (e.g. atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia), prediction of cardiorespiratory fitness and current or future cardiovascular health.

◉ Modelling studies, where mathematical modelling is used to address research questions related to wearable data and devices.

◉ Reviews on recent advances in the field.

There are currently no articles in this collection.

Submission Guidelines

This Collection welcomes submission of systematic or narrative reviews, original research articles, and unique clinical cases.

Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have read our submission guidelines. Articles for this collection should be submitted via our submission system, Editorial Manager. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a collection, please select "Wearable devices for BP and hemodynamics" from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the collection as they are published.

The Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
