AI could help doctors diagnose heart attacks faster – study

Heart Attacks

Researchers who developed the computer algorithm hope it diagnose heart attacks sooner than later.

Researchers who developed the computer algorithm hope it could reduce unnecessary admissions to busy A&E units – and also stop the clinical bias that currently results in some women missing out on life-saving treatment.

Clinical trials are now under way in UK, with support from Welcome Leap, to assess whether the tool reduces pressure on overcrowded emergency departments.

Previous research has shown that women are 50% more likely to be incorrectly diagnosed at first. And people who are initially given the wrong diagnosis have a 70% higher risk of dying after 30 days.

But that could be prevented by the new algorithm, according to The British Heart Foundation, which funded the work.
