Malang, East Java, Indonesia, Nov 27, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Researchers from the Brawijaya University (UB) Medical School in Malang, East Java have developed DETAK, a smartphone application for patients with heart disease. The app works on an AI (artificial intelligence) algorithm, to provide early and accurate detection of heart disease, or acute coronary syndrome, and prevent delays in proper diagnose and treatment.
Acute coronary syndrome describes a host of conditions linked to the sudden, reduced flow of blood to the heart. One such condition is a myocardial infarction, or heart attack, in which cell death results and can lead to damaged or destroyed heart tissue. DETAK was designed to prevent these types of occurrences with early discovery.
“Apart from functioning as an early detection tool encouraging patients to seek treatment, DETAK serves to remind heart disease patients to take their medication and undergo medical checkups regularly,” noted Mohammad
