DUBAI, January 27, 2022

An app that can accurately and quickly read, analyse, and diagnose a heart patient's condition is now available for use in the UAE after being licensed by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP).
The application has the ability to diagnose 45 heart diseases in less than 10 seconds, including cardiac arrhythmia, conduction disorders, myocardial infarction, ventricular and atrial hypertrophy, pericarditis, angina pectoris. 
The ministry, in cooperation with ProCardio Medical Equipment Company, is showcasing the ECG interpretation and analysis smart app at the Arab Health 2022. The app offers 95% accuracy and instant results, a statement said.
The app would be particularly helpful in dealing with critical cases, such as cardiac arrhythmia "an irregular heartbeat", it said. 
Using artificial intelligence technology, the ECG can be read and data analysed by the paramedic teams within 10-30 seconds, whether during road accidents or at home. It can transfer the real image of the ECG to the hospital after analysing it with an accuracy of up to 95%, which contributes to reducing time and effort and saving patients' lives, said the statement.
"The new project comes in line with the ministry’s efforts to attract, license, and register innovative medical products and advanced applications that support and facilitate the work of health care providers and members of society," said Dr Amin Hussein Al-Amiri, Assistant Undersecretary for the Health Regulation Sector. "We are also keen to promote the use of modern technology which plays a major role in producing medical and digital equipment and supplies.” – TradeArabia News Service
