In this research, we have performed pulse analysis on the data of 127 subjects collected from Department of Cardiology at Shandong Provincial Hospital in China. By taking the first and third derivatives of an entire pulse wave, we have firstly identified the locations of wave foot, systolic peak, and reflected point. Then we calculated Reverse Shoulder Index (RSI) and Ratio of Distance of the evaluated subjects, and correlated them to age, the history of hypertension, and different cardiovascular diseases of the subjects.
