 Subjects with one or more Vasovagal Syncope (VVS) episodes are sent to undergo a head-up tilt test, which is the only tool accepted to assess this pathology. During these tests, different parameters are acquired and recorded, typically electrocardiogram and non -invasive arterial blood pressure. In this paper we are presenting our experience on the development of a peripherical arterial pulse monitor. The availability of these signals will enhance the post-test signal analysis, for example they may help us to detect sympathetic or parasympathetic activity. Due to the use of pulse oximeter board others parameters are available like the Saturation of Peripheral Oxygen (SpO2) and the Perfusion index (PI) . We use a modified commercial OEM Oximeter board from Apexar, adapt their digital outputs to USB and finally combine this digital entry with other analogic channels using  our specially developed software.
