Deep convolutional neural networks based ECG beats classification to diagnose cardiovascular conditions.

Biomed Eng Lett 2021 May 16;11(2):147-162. Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Healthy Ageing Theme, Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Darlinghurst, NSW 2010 Australia.

Medical practitioners need to understand the critical features of ECG beats to diagnose and identify cardiovascular conditions accurately. This would be greatly facilitated by identifying the significant features of frequency components in temporal ECG wave-forms using computational methods. In this study, we have proposed a novel ECG beat classifier based on a customized VGG16-based Convolution Neural Network (CNN) that uses the time-frequency representation of temporal ECG, and a method to identify the contribution of interpretable ECG frequencies when classifying based on the SHapley Additive exPlanations (SHAP) values.

Brugada Pattern Phenocopy Induced by Diabetic Ketoacidosis.

Cureus 2021 May 16;13(5):e15066. Epub 2021 May 16.

Interventional Cardiology, Unity Health, Searcy, USA.

Brugada syndrome is a congenital cardiac channelopathy characterized by ST-segment elevation (≥2 mm) and subsequent inverted T wave in a minimum of two right precordial leads (Brugada type 1 ECG [electrocardiogram] pattern) on ECG. Brugada syndrome is estimated to be responsible for 4%-12% of all sudden cardiac deaths and up to 20% in patients with structurally normal hearts. Development of a temporary Brugada pattern, known as Brugada phenocopy, has been observed in individuals presenting with reversible underlying conditions such as hyperkalemia, hyponatremia, acidosis, ischemia, and pulmonary embolism, among others.

The significance of upright T wave in lead V1 in predicting myocardial ischemia A literature review.

J Electrocardiol 2021 Jun 1;67:103-106. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Heart Hospital, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar.

Chest pain is still representing one of the most common and serious presentations to the emergency department worldwide. ECG is a crucial tool in evaluating patients with chest pain; however, only around 50% of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) will have a diagnostic ECG upon their presentation; the rest may either have a completely normal ECG or what is called nonspecific ST segment and T wave (NSSTTW) changes, hence it is essential to recognize the subtle ECG changes and know its significance. One of the ECG changes that can be easily missed is when the T wave in V1 is upright, especially when it is either a Tall Upright T wave (TTV1) or a New Tall Upright T-wave (NTTV1). Read More

Meeting the unmet needs of clinicians from AI systems showcased for cardiology with deep-learning-based ECG analysis.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2021 Jun;118(24)

Biomedical Engineering, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, 3200003, Israel

Despite their great promise, artificial intelligence (AI) systems have yet to become ubiquitous in the daily practice of medicine largely due to several crucial unmet needs of healthcare practitioners. These include lack of explanations in clinically meaningful terms, handling the presence of unknown medical conditions, and transparency regarding the system's limitations, both in terms of statistical performance as well as recognizing situations for which the system's predictions are irrelevant. We articulate these unmet clinical needs as machine-learning (ML) problems and systematically address them with cutting-edge ML techniques. Read More
