Hopefully, the current cycle of innovation in cardiac care will continue to drive better outcomes in the coming years.
FREMONT, CA: With cardiac emergencies being the major cause of death, it is essential to monitor and intervene when needed. The future of cardiac health will be revolutionized by advances in artificial intelligence, digital health technology, and mobile devices to prevent and treat heart disease. Here are some of the new cardiac health technologies available today.
• Artificial Intelligence
The medical field around the world is taking part in an ongoing discussion regarding Artificial Intelligence (AI) in cardiac health. AI is expected to provide new ways to monitor, predict and improve patient outcomes. Cardiology devices now use AI and machine learning to increase the speed of completion for reporting systems. These two technologies support cardiologists by locating problems in the cardiologist's heart and blood vessels to assess. With advanced pattern recognition developed from applying machine learning to a dataset that a human could analyze, the world may eventually reach a point where the machines can accurately identify and diagnose cardiac conditions.
• Virtual and Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are leveraged to be mere concepts connected with science-fiction shows, films, and novels. The primary application for AR & VR in cardiology and healthcare studies is training. This new technology can develop an immersive training environment, enabling cardiac care practitioners to live out a detailed scenario before facing it in the real world. Using AR and VR to train professionals in the use of new cardiac technology, surgical procedures, and responses to cardiac emergencies can mitigate the risk of human errors, preserving human life by allowing students to practice on digital models rather than human patients.
• Wearable Technologies
Among the technologies used to monitor cardiac health, wearables have become the norm for people around the globe. Bands, watches, and rings are some of the smart devices equipped with heart-monitoring capabilities. These ready-to-wear cardiac devices are available in different markets. Many of them enable heart rate monitoring, and some have advanced features like the potential to produce electrocardiograms. Becoming familiar with their heart's rhythms and looking for abnormalities in the data can assist users in noticing a potentially dangerous abnormality before it becomes an emergency.
