Feasibility of compression depth estimation from the acceleration signal during cardiopulmonary resuscitation in long-distance trains

Abstract

Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and early defibrillation improve survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Long distance trains are increasingly being equipped with defibrillators. CPR feedback devices help rescuers to deliver chest compressions with an adequate depth. Most of them are based on accelerometers placed beneath the rescuer's hands… (More)
