Could your car predict a cardiac event? Study explores heart monitoring in vehicles

A driver experiencing an unexpected cardiac event on the road isn’t the only one at risk. The grant was to study what types of computational systems, in conjunction with physiological patient monitors, could be implemented into vehicles to achieve the safety objective. Driving research forward Najarian and team want to create a system that could be placed in the vehicle to monitor and predict an adverse cardiac event.

Medical emergencies cause a high number of vehicle crashes. Now researchers have teamed up with Toyota to examine whether new vehicle technology could predict — and potentially prevent — such scenarios.
