Jewish Link.- A new Israeli app can sound the alarm before the onset of heart failure by analyzing the sound of a user’s voice, reported The Times of Israel,
in a study of heart failure vascular with recovered patients who used listenIts technology predicts 82% of recidivism, catching them an average of 18 days before
One study with recovered patients found that the app predicted 82 percent of relapses before they occurred.
listen “Listens” to voice samples that users record on their smartphones and alerts them if they are in imminent danger congestive heart failure, It works by detecting irregularities in a person’s speech, comparing them to their healthy “reference” voice. If abnormalities are found, doctors are informed immediately so that they can take preventive measures.
The company behind the app did a new study, Cordio Medical, in partnership with Bellinson Hospital, Barzilai Medical Center and Galilei Medical Center as well as Clalit Health Services Cardiovascular Center. It is currently in the process of peer review.
patients who experienced heart failure and were therefore believed to have a significant chance of recidivism from using the app listen at home and sent voice samples in Hebrew, Arabic or Russian. The 180 patients recorded multiple clips per day for two years, meaning 460,000 clips were reviewed for the study.
heart failure This occurs when the heart muscle’s ability to contract is impaired over time or when it has a mechanical problem that limits its ability to fill with blood. The heart is then unable to keep up with the body’s need for blood, and the blood returns to the heart at a rate faster than it can be pumped. the heart congests; hence the word congestive heart failure,
executive director of Cordio MedicalTamir Tal said that about a third of patients experienced heart failure During the two years of the study, as anticipated. When their medical records were matched against the app’s voice analysis, it was discovered that the app predicted failure in 82% of cases. On average, warning signs are detected about 18 days before an incident.
The study design, which was reviewed by the ethics committee, meant that patients did not receive real-time alerts, but of Said that when the app is launched, doctors will have the opportunity to change medication or provide additional care and this could prevent many cases of disease recurrence. heart failure,
of said the study results suggest the technology could save lives and “significantly reduce the number of hospital admissions.” congestive heart failure,
The technology has recently been approved by Ministry of Health and of The European Union, expect approval from FDA At the end of 2023. of Said app complies with the US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which sets privacy standards requiring patients to consent to all uses of their data.
Users talk into their phones for about a minute several times a day in a quiet room, and artificial intelligence analyzes the file. “Just like when you call your mom and she can tell right away by your voice if you’re not feeling well, the app uses i a to ‘read’ your voice and tell when things are not the way they should be,” he explained. of,
“Cardiologists have the ability to hear complications in their patients’ speech, but it is usually too late, as patients usually require hospitalization at this point. However, in our voices There is a lot of data waiting to be extracted. By continuously monitoring people and using this data, this platform can be a life-changing solution.”
