Title (EN) VITAL LIFE SIGN DETECTOR
(FR) DETECTEUR DE SIGNES VITAUX
Abstract:
(EN) A vital life sign detector which can be used to determine heart and respiration activity in an individual wearing bulky clothing, such as chemical warfare protective clothing. A detector (20), such as an accelerometer or geophone, detects chest wall vibrations of an individual and produces an output signal (22) in response thereto. The output signal is processed to determine the existence of cardiac and respiratory activity. The output signal can be further processed to calculate the heart rate and respiration rate of the individual. The system produces a visual (34) or audio signal (40) which allows medical personnel to determine quickly whether the individual is alive.
(FR) Un détecteur de signes vitaux peut être utilisé pour déterminer l'activité cardiaque et respiratoire chez un individu portant des vêtements lourds tels que des vêtements de protection chimique. Un détecteur (20), tel qu'un accéléromètre ou un géophone, détectent les vibrations de la paroi de la poitrine d'un individu et produit un signal de sortie (22) en réponse à ces vibrations. Un signal de sortie est traité pour déterminer l'existence d'une activité cardiaque et respiratoire. Le signal de sortie peut être également traité pour calculer le rythme cardiaque et le rythme respiratoire de l'individu. Le système produit un signal visuel (34) ou un signal audio (40) qui permet au personnel médical de déterminer rapidement si l'individu est vivant.
