The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) is displaying the latest ECG interpretation and analysis smart app at Arab Health 2022. The app developed in collaboration with ProCardio Medical Equipment Company shows 95 percent accuracy with instant results.

This is part of the ministry's efforts to assist healthcare practitioners and patients in utilising the most up-to-date advances in reading and diagnosing electrocardiogram (ECG) data. The app aids in better and faster diagnoses, particularly in critical circumstances.

After being licenced by the ministry's Health Regulatory Sector, the app is now available for usage in the UAE. The software can read, evaluate and diagnose the patient's health properly and rapidly, which is especially crucial in urgent circumstances like cardiac arrhythmia ("an irregular heartbeat").

The ECG can be read and evaluated by paramedic teams using artificial intelligence technologies in 10-30 seconds.

The process involves sending the real image of the ECG to the hospital after analysing it with up to 95% accuracy, thereby saving time and effort in the process of saving patients' lives.

Cardiovascular arrhythmia, conduction problems, myocardial infarction, ventricular and atrial hypertrophy, pericarditis, and angina pectoris are among the 45 heart ailments that the app can identify in less than 10 seconds.

Dr. Amin Hussein Al-Amiri, Assistant Undersecretary for the Health Regulation Sector said that this new project is in line with the ministry's efforts to attract, license and register innovative medical products.

“Advanced applications will support and facilitate the work of health care providers and members of society. We also want to promote new technology, which is critical in the manufacture of medical and digital equipment and supplies”, he added.
