Eko Health’s AI Stethoscope Diagnoses Heart Conditions Better Than Doctors

Eko Health’s AI Stethoscope Diagnoses Heart Conditions Better Than Doctors.

Eko Health offers a stethoscope that diagnoses heart failure using artificial intelligence technologies. Research conducted by a general Massachusetts hospital showed that the device identified twice as many patients with heart conditions compared to junior medical staff.

Eko Health claims that conventional stethoscope examinations are too inconsistent and inaccurate, leading to delayed or incorrect diagnoses by doctors. In contrast, AI can utilize heart sounds and assess cardiac rhythms to make more precise diagnoses.

Essentially, this gadget provides cardiologist-level skills to other physicians and even practicing nurses. The company has amassed a large dataset of chest sounds and electrocardiograms (ECGs). Using this data, Eko developed several algorithms for detecting heart conditions.

In April, the Eko stethoscope received approval from regulatory bodies to detect early signs of heart failure during medical check-ups. Eko also obtained clearance for its technology to detect cardiac murmurs.

As a result of these developments, Eko Health secured $41 million in investments to enhance early and accurate detection of heart and lung diseases. These funds will be used to train AI algorithms to detect lung diseases such as asthma and pneumonia, as well as to market new gadgets and software.
