Mayo Clinic research finds AI-enabled ECGs may identify patients at greater risk of stroke, cognitive decline
ROCHESTER, Minn. — Atrial fibrillation, the most common cardiac rhythm abnormality, has been linked to one-third of ischemic strokes, the most common type of stroke. But atrial fibrillation is underdiagnosed, partly because many patients are asymptomatic. Artificial intelligence-enabled electrocardiography (ECG) w as recently shown to identify the presence of brief episodes of atrial fibrillation, and the ability of an AI-enabled ECG algorithm to predict atrial fibrillation up to 10 years before clinical diagnosis has been confirmed… (Source: Mayo Clinic Arizona News)

Mayo researchers use AI to detect weak heart pump via patients' Apple Watch ECGs
ROCHESTER, Minn. — Single-lead ECG tracings from an Apple Watch interpreted by an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm developed at Mayo Clinic effectively identified patients with a weak heart pump. Patients were enrolled by email in a decentralized, prospective study. Then they downloaded an app that securely transferred watch ECGs in the background. Study participation was high, demonstrating the possibility for a scalable tool to be developed to screen and monitor heart patients for this condition… (Source: Mayo Clinic Minnesota News)
