Title
(EN) Defibrillator assessing chest recoil in cardio pulmonary resuscitation
Abstract
(EN) A defibrillator 20 is provided which assesses chest recoil of a subject during cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) carried out by a rescuer on the subject, the defibrillator providing feedback to the rescuer. The defibrillator comprises an impedance measurement system 24 configured to measure impedance signals of the subject, and a biosignal measurement system 22 configured to measure bio signals of the subject, to determine when CPR is required and subsequently should be stopped. A CPR assessment system 26 is connected to both the biosignal measurement system and the impedance measurement system to receive impedance signals. The assessment system is configured receive an impedance signal of the subject measured during a plurality of chest compressions, use the impedance signal to assess chest recoil during the chest compressions, and compare the chest recoil with a chest recoil threshold. Feedback is provided to the rescuer, via a feedback unit 28, based on a combination of the chest recoil data and measured biosignals.
