Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in the world, with 50% of the deaths occurring at home.
Patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases live under the high risk of a heart attack. Without any means to monitor their heart, patients make therapy decisions based on symptoms they feel. But even in the case of a heart attack, the symptoms can be mild and ambiguous so patients delay going to the hospital, until it is too late.
A golden standard to diagnose a heart attack or any other heart pathology is a 12-lead ECG, but the technology never truly left the hospital. Even though remote monitoring ECG devices already exist, there are simply not enough experts/cardiologists to (remotely) monitor the patients and make the diagnoses on time.
However, the recent advancements in technology are now enabling us to augment one person's abilities, opening the possibility to remotely monitor each and every patient.
With the help of artificial intelligence, we are developing the AI algorithm to help us solve the bottleneck of telecardiology.
