Abstract
The automated measurement of systolic time intervals (STI) is a valuable tool in assessing the cardiovascular integrity of human subjects in operational environments. To this end, DCIEM has acquired a specially designed computer-assisted impedance cardiograph, called the Cardiac Exercise Stress Processor (CESP). The study was done in order to assess the reliability and validity of this device, and to provide some baseline data with respect to the normal changes in STI that can be expected in operational environments that have different postural requirements and which vary in the generation of psychological stress.
