If you are measuring pulse height the last thing you want is a
highpass filter. It will tend to differentiate the pulse, and in the
worst case you will double the peak-to-peak height of the pulse.
Are you really trying to measure the peak - even if it occupies just
one sample? If not, perhaps you would do better with a sort of rolling
average that smooths off some of the noise. This would actually be a
lowpass rather than highpass function. But it would give you smoother
and more reliable data to measure.
