Project: HeartSafe - Assessing Heart Function for Unsupervised Homecare Applications through Multi-Channel Auscultation

Acronym: HeartSafe
Main Objective:
The main scientific goal of this project is to research algorithms applicable in long-term home monitoring contexts for the assessment of cardiac function, the key variable in cardiovascular disease (CVD) management, using a multi-channel heart sound auscultation approach. Clinical applications will be developed for early detection of Heart Failure (HF) decompensation episodes in elderly and neonatal populations; both will be clinically assessed using in-hospital studies.
