Compression frequency and amplitude are the main parameters that should be monitored during human cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). These parameters can be checked by monitoring the movements of the resuscitator’s hands relative to their initial position on the patient’s chest. Integral sensors of acceleration (accelerometers) can provide such monitoring. The goal of this work was to describe a technique for automatic monitoring of chest compression parameters during human cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The technique is based on data obtained using an accelerometer.
