A Smartphone Tool for Evaluating Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Delivery

Gavin Corkery, Kenneth Dawson-Howe

Abstract

This paper presents a prototype smartphone application to aid with the delivery of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The person giving CPR is viewed from the side and both compressions and breaths are identified primarily using optical flow. This allows the system to provide near real time feedback on the chest compression rate (CCR) and on the timing of breaths (which affects the Chest Compression Fraction (CCF)). The system is evaluated on over 25 minutes of video of 6 different participants delivering CPR to a test dummy. A quantitative evaluation is presented which shows that the system recognised 99% of compressions and all of the breaths (although two false positive breaths were classified). It computed the CCF to within 1%.
