Using smartphone technology, a group of Harvard scientists are making it possible for people to monitor their blood potassium levels at home without drawing blood. The scientists developed a machine learning algorithm to detect potassium abnormalities in the blood. How does it work? They attach electrodes to a smartphone to record an ECG. Then, the machine learning algorithm flags subtle changes in the ECGs that correlated with blood potassium levels.
