AI Helps Emergency Dispatchers Identify Cardiac Arrest

On an emergency call, it can be really hard to tell if someone is describing the cardiac arrest of a friend or relative. They’re often panicked and have a hard time describing what’s going on. In these situations, time is of the essence. For every minute that passes, the likelihood of victim survival drops. That’s why there’s an AI helping Denmark’s emergency call operators to better identify cardiac arrests. When this AI identifies the signs of cardiac arrest, it pops a flag up on their screen. These well-trained emergency responders identify cardiac arrest 73 percent of the time, while this AI was found to identify cardiac arrest 95% of the time.
