Garmin International this week declared that the Cardiogram heart health application is now well-matched with all Garmin devices sporting optical heart rate. This devices include many of the newest wearables such as Forerunner®, fēnix®, and Vívo series devices.
The Cardiogram app offers enhanced insights on the basis of data from wearable devices, assisting consumers better recognize how sleep & activity impact their general health. Associating with the University of California’s Department of Cardiology, Cardiogram has merged data from DeepHeart and optical heart rate sensors to identify major health conditions.
DeepHeart is an AI-based algorithm designed by Cardiogram. Via multiple surveys, DeepHeart has so far showed the capability of detecting 4 medical conditions such as sleep apnea, atrial fibrillation, diabetes, and hypertension. The results are published in journals such as JAMA Cardiology and validated by the medical community.
“Most of the users have requested Cardiogram to support Garmin devices. By directly incorporating via the API of Garmin Health, Cardiogram has authorization to the wide range of enhanced metrics these devices create,” claimed co-founder of Cardiogram, Johnson Hsieh.
Speaking of health apps, scientists have designed an app related to clinical decision support that keeps an eye on the health status and medical tests of the heart failure patients. In addition, it promptly notifies doctors when their health have modified or when they need enhanced disease treatments.
The scientists discovered that the application resulted to considerably enhanced discovery of disease improvements such as an augmentation in survival rates of the patients as well as improvement in the quality of life.
“We discovered that the clinical decision support can make easy the premature recognition of patients requiring improved heart failure treatment and that its employment was related with considerably more patients visiting longer survival and specialized heart facilities,” exposed the team controlled by R. Scott Evans to the media in an interview.
