ANALYSIS ALGORITHMS FOR A FIRST-AID SENSOR - Detecting Vitality Parameters such as Pulse and Respiration

Daniel Wettach, Marc Jaeger, Armin Bolz, Timur Oezkan

Abstract

In this paper the software algorithms necessary to analyze the signal provided by a first-aid sensor system that detects pulse and respiration at a single point are described. In an opinion poll four of five inexperienced first responders were interested in using this kind of system as support in emergency situations. Especially the intelligent detection of respiration is hardly popular today and in most cases only possible offline. The software also controls several visual indicators that assist the first aider in quickly determining the state of the patient.
