Model-based medicineProf. Dr. Thomas Neumuth
The project aims to develop a non-invasive, multimodal monitoring system that will enable first responders to obtain informative objective feedback on the quality of executed cardipulmonary resuscitation. Regardless of their technical or medical background knowledge, users should be able to quickly bring the system into an operational state, attach it to the patient’s body and receive an evaluation of the resuscitation activity performed. The user should be shown the qualitative changes in the arterial blood flow in the neck that occurs as a result of thoracic compressions. In addition, several preclinical measurements on the phantom are to be used to establish ranges for measured values in the laboratory environment, which will support the user in assessing the displayed blood flow values.
