The study showed that heart attacks in women can be treated using artificial intelligence. Heart attacks are considered the most common causes of death in developed countries, and women die from them more often than men.
It’s all about the symptoms, because in men, heart attacks are manifested by classic chest pains that spread to the left arm. And women often have abdominal discomfort that radiates into the back, causing nausea or vomiting. In some cases, a female heart attack is even accompanied by diarrhea, and these symptoms are often attributed to some kind of poisoning or even stomach flu. All this leads to untimely medical care and disastrous consequences.
Researchers from the University of Zurich have studied in more detail the role of gender in the occurrence of heart attacks. They analyzed data on more than 420,000 patients who had suffered the most common heart attacks. It was found that the use of a machine learning algorithm makes it possible to develop a new risk assessment based on artificial intelligence. And it takes into account gender-related differences in the basic risk profile and reduces the likelihood of mortality for both sexes.
Health assessment based on artificial intelligence also improves individual care. Many researchers agree that artificial intelligence is the next step towards the development of personalized patient care. And this study confirms the validity of these assumptions.
