Background: In this research, the pulse wave data of 274 subjects from both the patient and control groups are evaluated and analyzed. Based on the pulse wave analysis of those subjects, a study of diagnosing cardiovascular diseases is conducted. Methods and Results: By investigating the correlation between the cardiac indices Reverse Shoulder Index (RSI) and Ratio of Distance for patients with cardiovascular diseases from different age and gender groups, several common and important observations are reported. By carrying out case studies, we have verified some of our findings with several patient cases. Conclusion: In this research, pulse wave analysis is applied for the study of cardiovascular diseases with some important observations. We expect that our discoveries in this research can eventually help the end-users in cardiovascular diseases diagnosis.
