DescriptionCommunicating a patient's state accurately during transfer from emergency medical technicians to hospital personnel is crucial for optimal care. Prior work demonstrated automated algorithms that combined wearable sensors with video data from cameras to detect clinical procedures and improve this information transfer. However, incorporating video requires task- or environment-specific installation mechanisms, raises privacy concerns, and is susceptible to occlusion and image noise. The presented approach detects clinical procedures using wearable sensors (i.e., inertial and electrophysiological) only and the procedures' subtasks to mitigate the sensors' signal variability to provide clinical procedure detection.
