Delhi doctors develop a system to prevent post-heart attack fatalities

The model has been specially designed for predicting the chances of an Indian patient dying within 30 days of suffering a heart attack or surviving.

Over 1.4 million Indian suffer a heart attack every year, of whom 8-10% die within a month.

A team of Delhi-based doctors has now developed an indigenous system, based on machine learning, to predict a patient’s chances of dying within 30 days of suffering a heart attack or going on to survive.

The system collects data on heart attack patients from the North Indian ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (NORIN STEMI) registry.

And it takes less than two minutes to generate a score based on the data that can help doctors identify whether an individual is a high-risk patient who can succumb within 30 days or capable of surviving beyond the crucial period.
