(Los Angeles) Over the past fifty to seventy years, human lifestyles have changed dramatically and our lifestyles have changed completely. Whether it’s eating habits or going to bed, everything has changed. In such conditions, many diseases have also gripped human beings badly. Heart disease is one of the hallmarks of our modern lifestyle.
Encouraging news comes from the California Institute of Technology, where researchers have developed a smartphone application that can tell the medical condition of the human heart in just two minutes. The current method of this type of diagnosis depends on the ultrasound, which can take up to 45 minutes.
When the human heart pumps blood into the body, the carotid artery in the neck swells, causing the skin of the neck to move or move in place. Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have developed a technology that can measure LVEF or left ventricular ejection fraction from movement caused by blood circulation in the neck. LVEF actually shows the amount of blood pumped into the body at each heartbeat. The rate of LVEF in a healthy heart is 50 to 70%. If this rate goes down, it is a sign that the heart is weak.
Researchers at CalTech (California Institute of Technology) have developed an application that requires. The smartphone’s camera is to be held close to the neck for about two minutes. Simply put, it’s like making a neck video. This application detects the movement caused by the carotid artery and estimates the rate of LVEF.
