Camera-based photoplethysmography (cbPPG) is an innovative measuring technique that enables the remote extraction of vital signs using video cameras. Most studies in the field focus on heart rate detection while other physiological quantities are often ignored. In this work, we analyzed the relation between the pulse pressure and the pulsation strengths of cbPPG signals for 70 patients after surgery. Our results show a high correlation between the two measures (r = 0.54). Furthermore, the influence of technical and medical factors was tested. The controlled impact of these factors proved to enhance the correlation by between 9 and 27 %.
