Data of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation performed on a mannequin was collected via wearable instrumentation (using the MYO device). The data were collected for “good” CPR performance and performance of CPR with intentional error for common errors. The data are labelled according to the error, and contain a variety of derived measurements. Data collected were used toward “Development of a novel cardiopulmonary resuscitation measurement tool using real-time feedback from wearable wireless instrumentation.


Steps to reproduce

Wearable instrumentation (the MYO device) was used to record data of a CPR practitioner performing CPR correctly*, and with intentional error, on a CPR mannequin. The intention is to characterise good vs bad CPR by making direct measurements of the CPR practitioner.
