The e/MTIC mini-program proposed here seeks to leverage technological advances in unobtrusive sensing, monitoring and data analysis to enable earlier recognition, mitigate progression and improve treatment of cardiovascular disease. The program will run for approximately five years and targets three priorities of the Hartstichting:

  1. Earlier recognition of cardiovascular disease;
  2. Cardiovascular disease in women;
  3. Better treatment of heart failure and arrhythmias.

The proposed projects are:
1. Early recognition of Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure
2. Remote cardiorespiratory status monitoring
3. Early detection of preeclampsia
4. Diagnosis and management of Atrial Fibrillation compounded by Obstructive Sleep Apnea
5. Automated analysis of abdominal aortic aneurisms by means of ultrasound
