UW Researchers Develop AI Tool to Monitor Cardiac Arrest

University of Washington Researchers have developed a new tool to monitor cardiac arress with the help of virtual assistants such as Google Home or Amazon Alexa. In this system a smart phone helps the device detect the gasping sound of agonal breathing and call for help.

This tool was developed based on agoal breathing instances captured from 911 calls, detected agaonla breathing events 97% of the time up to six metres away.This device can easily alert someone nearby that the person requires cardiac pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). If there is no response, then the device will automatically call 911 for help.Agonal breathing happens when oxygen levels in blood turns low. 
The researchers plan to commercialise the AI technology thorugh Sound Life Sciences, Inc, a UW spinout. Those experiencing cardiac arrests will be gasping for breath and this phenomenon is called agonal breathing. CPR improves the chances of survival by three times but that requires someone to be near at hand.Most cardiac attack happens to people either at night or early morning in the privacy of their bedrooms, hence the need for such an AI tool, the researchers said.
