Smart stethoscope uses artificial intelligence to screen for heart failure
In this study, researchers used a familiar stethoscope (to listen to heart sounds) with additional sensors to record an ECG (an electrocardiogram, a measure of the heart ' s electrical activity). They incorporated artificial intelligence (a computer programme) to analyse the ECG reading. The smart stethoscope identified people with heart failure correctly 9 out of 10 times. Few were missed by the stethoscope, and few were incorrectly identified as having heart failure when they did not. The researchers say the tool could be used to diagnose heart failure earlier, in primary care. It could help GPs prioritise referrals to...

What to Know About Diabetes and the Risk of Silent Heart Attacks
At first it seemed like a routine call—something the paramedics had dealt with countless times before. A man in his mid-50s was having a heart attack, and his physician had called for emergency support. But when the paramedics arrived, the physician pulled them aside and told them something peculiar: the man had no cardiovascular symptoms whatsoever. The man had come to his doctor’s office because he’d woken early the previous morning sweating and with a sharp pain in his left wrist. These symptoms had quickly subsided and he’d gone back to sleep. Later, after going about his day, he’d visited...

AI-guided screening uses ECG data to detect a hidden risk factor for stroke
An AI-guided targeted screening strategy is effective in detecting new cases of atrial fibrillation that would not have come to attention in routine clinical care. This strategy could reduce the number of undiagnosed cases of atrial fibrillation, and prevent stroke and death in millions of patients across the globe. ROCHESTER, Minn. — Researchers at Mayo Clinic used artificial intelligence (AI) to evaluate patients’ electrocardiograms (ECGs) in a targeted strategy to screen for atrial fibrillation, a… (Source: Mayo Clinic Research News)
