Sphygmopalpation occupies an important position in Chinese medicine as a diagnostic tool. But because of the pulse wave instability, the effectiveness is experiential and has not been clarified yet. It is known that the pulse number fluctuates due to motion and psychological effects, but whether the waveform changes with this is not clear. In this study, the effect of different breathing types on the pulse wave was examined, and a guideline for the sphygmopalpation method was obtained.
