The effect of the GoodSAM volunteer first-responder app on survival to hospital discharge following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

Eur Heart J Acute Cardiovasc Care. 2022 Jan 12;11(1):20-31. doi: 10.1093/ehjacc/zuab103. ABSTRACT AIMS: Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation can double survival to hospital discharge in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Mobile phone applications, such as GoodSAM, alerting nearby volunteer first-responders about out-of-hospital cardiac arrest could potentially improve bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation, leading to better patient outcomes. […]

Towards the Interpretation of Sound Measurements from Smartphones Collected with Mobile Crowdsensing in the Healthcare Domain: An Experiment with Android Devices

Sensors (Basel). 2021 Dec 28;22(1):170. doi: 10.3390/s22010170. ABSTRACT The ubiquity of mobile devices fosters the combined use of ecological momentary assessments (EMA) and mobile crowdsensing (MCS) in the field of healthcare.

Bionic for Training: Smart Framework Design for Multisensor Mechatronic Platform Validation

Sensors (Basel). 2021 Dec 30;22(1):249. doi: 10.3390/s22010249. ABSTRACT Home monitoring supports the continuous improvement of the therapy by sharing data with healthcare professionals. It is required when life-threatening events can still occur after hospital discharge such as neonatal apnea. However, multiple sources of external noise could affect data quality and/or increase the misdetection rate. In […]
