• Human oversight ECG monitors outperform AI for arrhythmia detection

    1 month ago - By Healio

    Long-term continuous ECG monitoring with human oversight outperformed an artificial intelligence-based mobile cardiac telemetry monitor for detection of arrhythmias, researchers reported at Heart Rhythm 2021.
    Detection and preliminary interpretation of results from outpatient cardiac monitors is performed by the device's manufacturer, “so we sought to compare the accuracy of two real-world monitors that we use in our clinic,” Mark E. Willcox, MD, electrophysiologist at Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute, Anchorage, said during a press conference.
    The monitors were a mobile
