Numerous research work has been published in the field of noninvasive and continuous blood pressure (BP) determination using surrogate parameters. Motivated by a multitude of inconsistent statements about the BP tracking capabilities of pulse transit time (PTT), a profound literature survey on this subject has been carried out. As the result and as a prerequisite for further research, this paper summarizes the surrogate parameters used for BP estimation (e.g. pulse transit time) and gives a critical review of the underlying measurement principles (and sites) applied in the sighted studies. In conclusion to the findings, the design for a clinical trial eliminating the shortcomings of the sighted literature in surrogate parameter determination is also presented.
