Cardiovascular and respiratory systems are the most important life-supporting systems of a body. Sensors and methods for measuring their operation are constantly under active research. Measurements of cardiovascular and respiratory systems may also be used to provide information on the status of the autonomic nervous system.
We invite manuscripts presenting and evaluating sensors as well as measurement or sensor signal analysis methods for assessing the condition of the aforementioned systems or monitoring their operation. In addition, methods using their signals for indirectly monitoring other physiological systems are within the scope of this Special Issue. Both original research papers and review articles relating to the sensors and methods in the areas of this Special Issue are welcomed.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
