  • Objective: This paper examines the integration of a noninvasive vital sign monitoring feature into the workers’ hearing protection devices (HPDs) by using a microphone positioned within the earcanal under the HPD. [...] Key Method Methods: 25 test-subjects were asked to breathe at various rhythms and intensities and these realistic sound events were recorded in the earcanal. Digital signal processing algorithms were then developed to assess heart and breathing rates.Expand Abstract
