Abstract: This paper introduces a study based on quality controlled discrete cosine transform (DCT) and lifting wavelet transform (LWT) based compression method for blood pressure signal compression in salt sensitive Dahl rat. The transformed coefficients are thresholded using the bisection algorithm to match the predefined user specified percentage root mean square difference (PRD) within the tolerance. Then, the binary lookup table is made to store the position map for zero and non-zero coefficients (NZC). The NZC are quantised by Max-Lloyd quantiser followed by arithmetic coding. Lookup table is encoded by Huffman coding. The results are presented on different blood pressure signals of varying characteristic. There is no significant difference in before quantisation PRD (BPRD) and after quantisation PRD (QPRD) in various signals in both transforms. Mean compression ratio increases with an increase in user define PRD (UPRD).
