How can healthcare practitioners transform cardiac care in India?

In recent years, technology has been at the heart of the transformation of many industry sectors. The healthcare industry is no exception, with digital adoption rapidly changing how patients receive healthcare.

Consider a few of these innovations: a mobile hospital cart that monitors patients, a connected wheelchair that provides real-time information, embedded sensors that alert users to any physiological irregularities, and “robot-nurses” with built-in communication interfaces for video chatting. Many of these may appear futuristic, but the healthcare industry is already experimenting with them to improve efficiency and patient experience.

Worldwide, cardiovascular diseases are on the rise as a result of unhealthy lifestyle choices. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), stroke and ischemic heart disease account for approximately 17.7 million deaths in India alone. This figure includes a sizable number of younger people. Heart health issues have been reported widely in patients who have had Covid .

Over the last decade, cardiac care has undergone significant change. With the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning , cardiologists and cardiac surgeons are ushering in unbelievable changes in cardiac treatment mechanisms. These technological advancements are allowing for earlier prevention and therapy of critically ill patients, which is improving outcomes.

Heart-rhythm monitors

The majority of patients with heart failure may experience irregular heart rhythm. It could be too slow, too fast, or irregular. Mostly doctors are currently using ECG recording to detect an irregularity in heart rhythm. ECG can only provide you with a snapshot of that particular moment.

What if a doctor wants to track a patient's rhythm over a longer period of time to gain a better understanding of their health? AliveCor’s KardiaMobile 6L ECG monitors are being developed by researchers. These are small devices that can be implanted beneath the skin to monitor heart rhythm.

Artificial intelligence and Machine learning

Artificial intelligence is a machine's ability to solve complex problems that would otherwise necessitate human intervention. Technological advancements have enabled machines to analyze large amounts of data accurately and quickly.

By detecting specific patterns in patient data, this learning improves decision-making, accurate diagnosis, and treatment planning. Cardiovascular physicians and researchers are now incorporating artificial intelligence with clinical practice to improve patient care. Physicians can use AI to achieve better results.
