Abstract

In a country like India where there is a huge population suffering from cardiovascular disorders, Atherosclerosis is one of the reasons leading to high chances of occurrence of cardiac related deaths.  Hence there is a severe need for introduction of non invasive technology which can help in early diagnostics of Atherosclerosis. Hence the main aim of this research is to design a non invasive technique to detect Atherosclerosis using Nadi Shashtra. Nadi Shashtra is one of the ancient medical technologies, which was originated in India. It has been derived from Ayurveda. The instrument so designed to diagnose Atherosclerosis is based on two basic parameters i.e. Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV) and Cardio Ankle Vascular Index (CAVI). The basic workflow of this device would be non-invasive calculation of PWV and CAVI using software LabVIEW and then the values so obtained will be compared to the standard prescribed range and the chances of occurrence of Atherosclerosis would be displayed in LabVIEW. To get more accurate analysis the test is done twice, once on upper limb and once on lower limb and the mean values are considered for calculations.
