Scientists today have been taking the utility of artificial intelligence to all sectors in all levels, making it easier for humans to save time, efforts and develop better accuracy in everything.

Recently, they have also developed an AI-based algorithm that can predict heart attacks and either cardiac diseases more efficiently than other traditional ways.

Just like google home or Alexa, a smart speaker is a device that detects the sudden change of breathing of a person during cardiac arrest and detects that the person is going through some severe attack.

This device, called the Immediate Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure that can help the patient survive with a double or triple chance at life. The device displays highly detailed images of the heart vessels and helps assess the risk instantly.

The coronary artery disease reporting and data system (CAD-RADS) is the decision-making tool which emphasizes the narrowing in the coronary arteries, which in simple terms, is the leading cause of the arrest.

Research suggests that one of the most common places where a cardiac arrest can occur that may cause serious trouble is in a patient’s bedroom, where no one is likely around or awake to respond and provide care.

People who experience sudden cardiac arrest will instantly become unresponsive and gasp for air or will stop breathing, a sign known as agonal breathing, explained the researchers at the University of Washington (UW) in the US.

Agonal breathing occurs to about 50 percent of people that experience cardiac arrests, and patients who take agonal breaths usually have a better chance of surviving.

“This kind of breathing happens when a patient experiences low oxygen levels,” said Jacob Sunshine, an assistant professor, School of Medicine at the University of Washington.

“It’s a guttural gasping sound, and its uniqueness makes it a good audio biomarker to utilize to identify if someone is experiencing a cardiac arrest,” Gollakota said. The researchers gathered sounds of agonal breathing from real 911 calls to Seattle’s Emergency Medical Services.

Hence, it is safe now to say that AI is also capable of saving lives, along with making them smooth with the correct usage.
