Care “Cardiac Anomaly Smart Early Detection System”
There are a wide variety of devices on the market capable of measuring the user’s cardiac activity in real time, which can be grouped into two categories:
Those devices used in hospitals by medical personnel for the detection of cardiac anomalies, and on the other hand, those portable devices designed to be used in the sports field or for home monitoring.
This project has focused on the design and implementation process of a Smart Holter that solves the current problems of portable monitoring systems on the market, while describing the technological solutions adopted in order to serve as a basis for the development of new equipment.
The Smart Holter is capable of simultaneously recording up to six user-selectable cardiac leads, as well as the acquisition of up to ten physical parameters configurable by connecting external analog sensors, in order to know the physical changes that occur before and during any pathology.
Performance tests of the algorithm have shown a high success rate in detecting the main cardiac anomalies, however, despite being able to record a total of six cardiac leads, the algorithm developed only makes use of three of them for the detection tasks, which have led to a high rate of successful detections. However, the inclusion of all the leads supported by the Smart Holter, as well as data from configurable external sensors, is still pending development.
