Oscillometry and pulse oximetry rely on signal processing for the detection of cardiogenic events (those arising from the activity of the heart) in a signal which is inherently sensitive to motion and other sources of artifact. In situations where more than one correlated physiological signal is available simultaneously (e.g., when the ECG is being acquired along with the cuff pressure in oscillometry), it is possible to use adaptive or other signal extraction techniques to enhance the desired component of the signal.
