Arterial baroreflex has a significant role in regulating blood pressure. It is known that increased stiffness of the carotid sinus affects mecanotransduction of baroreceptors and therefore limits baroreceptors capability to detect changes in blood pressure. By using high resolution ultrasound video signal and continuous measurement of electrocardiogram (ECG) and blood pressure, it is possible to define elastic properties of artery simultaneously with baroreflex sensitivity parameters. In this paper dataset which consist 38 subjects, 11 diabetics and 27 healthy controls was analyzed. Use of diabetic and healthy test subjects gives wide scale of arteries with different elasticity properties, which provide opportunity to validate baroreflex and artery stiffness estimation methods.
