This paper describes a new application of the recently developed Coefficient of Sample Entropy (CosEn) measure. This entropy estimator is specially suited for cases where the length of the time series is extremely short. CosEn has already been used successfully to characterize and detect atrial fibrillation, using as few as 12 heartbeats. We have customized the methodology employed for heartbeat interval series to blood pressure hypertensive (BPHT) human records. Little can be found about BPHT records and its nonlinear regularity analysis. The method described in this paper provides a good segmentation between control and pathologic groups, based on the corresponding labeled BPHT records. The experimental dataset was drawn from the available records at the Hypertension Unit of the University Hospital of Mostoles, in Spain. The hypertension related variables studied were systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and mean blood pressure (MBP). The hypothesis test yielded the following results in each case: acceptance probability of 0 for SBP, 0.005 for DBP and 0 for MBP. The confidence intervals for the three variables were nonoverlapping.
