Machine Learning and Early Diagnosis of CVD

2020 20 Feb

Despite significant advances in the diagnosis and management of cardiac disease, cardiovascular disease continues to have high morbidity and mortality. In some  cases, the diagnosis is delayed, while in others, the diagnosis is mistaken for another disorder. Advanced technology and machine learning have opened up new opportunities to evaluate image-based... Read more

Machine Learning Helps Predict Risk of Heart Failure

2019 20 Sep

Heart failure is a common complication in patients suffering from Type 2 Diabetes (T2D). Recently, new medicines have been developed to offset these risks; however, finding effective strategies to identify which T2D patients are most at risk has been difficult.    Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and UT Southwestern Medical Centre have...

Machine learning to recognise cardiac arrest in emergency calls

2019 29 May

Nearly 600,000 people in the US and Europe combined sustain an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) annually. OHCA is a life-threatening condition, and in order to improve survival rates, it is imperative that it is recognised rapidly by medical dispatchers. Accurate recognition of OHCA either by a bystander or a dispatcher is essential for initiation... Read more

Use of machine learning for prognosis and therapy of adult congenital heart disease

2019 10 Apr

A new study shows that incorporating modern deep machine learning networks into prognostic models is feasible in congenital heart disease. The researchers used data from over 10 000 patients and 44,000 medical reports available at a tertiary centre for congenital heart disease and pulmonary hypertension and combined this information with demographic,...

Machine learning tool to recognise cardiac arrest in emergency calls

2019 15 Feb

Emergency medical dispatchers fail to identify approximately 25% of cases of out of hospital cardiac arrest, thus lose the opportunity to provide the caller instructions in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This study examined whether a machine learning framework could recognize out-of-hospital cardiac arrest from audio files of calls to the emergency... Read more

Machine learning tools for predicting clinical outcomes

2018 06 Mar

New research findings suggest that machine learning may usher in a new era in digital healthcare tools that are able to predict clinical outcomes in patients with known or potential heart problems. These findings are from several studies being presented at the American College of Cardiology's 67th Annual Scientific Session. The new studies presented... Read more
