1/ So with #deeplearning #AI you can diagnose atrial fibrillation from a person's face (machine vision captures pulsatile blood flow that human's can't see) Small N, high accurac @JAMACardio FPPG vs ECG Bryan Yan et al @CUHKMedicine @HRIAust @Sydney_Uni
Using ~650,000 electrocardiograms from over 180,000 patients, a neural network could predict future atrial fibrillation when patients were in normal sinus rhythm (AUC 0.87-90) #AI #deeplearning @noseworthypete @zachia5 @drpaulfriedman @MayoClinicCV
Apple Watch is now basically a 24/7 wrist doctor. 3 new heart features: Notification if your heart rate appears too low Detects irregular rhythm suggesting atrial fibrillation It can take an ECG anytime, anywhere in 30 seconds #AppleEvent
Holy moly. Apple Watch 4 has sensors built into the back and crown that lets you take your own ECG (electrocardiogram)—first ever over-the-counter device. Detects atrial fibrillation. A HUGE lifesaving development. #AppleEvent2018
People who eat 2-6 servings of chocolate per week have a 20% lower risk of atrial fibrillation, a new study says.
