Use of this technique developed by researchers can help doctors to treat patients by increasing blood circulation.
Researchers have been able to accurately measure blood circulation in heart patients using Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the first time. Through this, the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients can be accurately assessed. The use of this technique developed by researchers at UCL and Barts Health NHS Trust can help doctors to treat patients by increasing blood circulation. Low blood circulation is a common symptom in heart patients, which is possible to treat. In such a situation, blood circulation needs to be assessed and measures taken to increase it. However, some of the procedures adopted for this are fraught with risk. Imaging methods such as Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) also exist, but these measures so far make an accurate analysis of scan images difficult.
Researchers in a thousand patients of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital and Royal Free Hospital investigated and treated patients by obtaining blood circulation data immediately using the new automated AI. This method is better than conventional treatment.
Risk of heart attack due to very fine particles
According to the researchers, exposure to ultrafine particles (superfluous pollutant particles) present in air pollution also increases the risk of heart attack. Ultrafine particles (UFPs) are 100 nanometers or even smaller in size. In urban areas, the primary source of UFP is smoke emanating from vehicles.
Researchers alternately studied concentrations of different size particles to test the effect of UFP on heart attack. It found that small particles of air pollutants have a serious role in heart disease. It is more in the first few hours. They have the ability to penetrate cells and merge with the blood circulatory system.
