Abstract

A measurement method (1) for detecting vital parameters in a human or animal body, in which, in a detection step (3), a magnetic induction sensor detects an induction measurement sequence which is dependent on a time-varying change in at least one vital parameter, wherein in the detection step (3), a secondary sensor unit simultaneously detects a secondary measurement sequence, the secondary measurement sequence being dependent on an influential variable signal sequence that influences the induction measurement sequence, and in that in a subsequent combination step (4), at least one vital parameter measurement sequence for a vital parameter detected from the induction measurement sequence is calculated from the induction measurement sequence and the secondary measurement sequence using a predefined combination function, so that the detection accuracy of the vital parameter represented in the vital parameter measurement sequence and the induction measurement sequence is improved by combining the induction measurement sequence with the secondary measurement sequence to form the vital parameter measurement sequence. The invention also relates to a measuring apparatus for carrying out the method according to the invention.
