Cardiovascular CME podcast: Ventricular Tachycardia Database Development and Detection

In this “ECG Segment: Making Waves” episode of the “Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular CME” podcast, host Anthony Kashou, M.D., interviews Michele Pelter, R.N., Ph.D., about ventricular tachycardia database development and detection. The database is designed to improve hospital-based ECG monitoring and prevent false ECG alarms that might contribute to alarm fatigue in nurses. During the interview, Dr. Pelter explains why ventricular tachycardia is the focus; highlights algorithm deficiencies and how the annotated ventricular tachycardia database can improve false ventricular tachycardia alarms; and talks about other related projects in hospital-based ECG monitoring.
