Research project: Real time feedback for effective chest compressions during Cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Currently Active: 
Yes

In the UK alone, there are over 30,000 cardiac arrests outside hospitals every year, but the survival rate remains less than 1 in 10. Conducting chest compressions promptly and effectively in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is vital to restore blood flow, helping save people’s lives.

This project aims to develop a bioengineering system to provide real time feedback on the chest compressions during CPR to help improve the survival rate. This research is underpinned by novel biomechanical engineering research, advanced sensor, and digital solutions. This project is funded by the British Heart Foundation, in collaboration with UCL, Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
