By applying photoplethysmography (PPG), the camera of the mobile phone can be used to remotely assess heart rate and rhythm, which was widely used in conjunction with teleconsultations within the TeleCheck-AF project during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Herein, we provide an educational, structured, stepwise practical guide on how to interpret PPG signals. A better understanding of PPG recordings is critical for the implementation of this widely available technology into clinical practice.
