Abstract

In this paper we introduce and outline the results of a survey designed to identify the demands and stressors experienced by pre-hospital care providers. We then present a controlled study that investigates how the stressors identified as being present in pre-hospital care can be measured using unobtrusive sensors measuring heart rate and skin conductance. We highlight how these findings can have important implications for future work regarding the development of systems for pre-hospital care providers.
