ABC News: FDA Clears AI Stethoscope Technology That Can Detect Heart Failure

A newly FDA-cleared artificial intelligence engineered by the Mayo Clinic and the company Eko Health can detect heart failure with reduced ejection fraction in a matter of seconds.

A team trained the AI program by having it listen to more than 100,000 patients’ recordings and having the computer interpret the heart’s activity. The new technology can now record and analyze a person’s own heart strength in 10 to 15 seconds, showing some of the earliest, hardest-to-detect signs of heart failure with low ejection fraction.
