At Heart Rhythm 2022, researchers reported that applying an artificial intelligence to an Apple Watch ECG can detect left ventricular dysfunction in a nonclinical setting.

The findings were based on a proof-of-concept study that included 2,454 patients. It was the top story in cardiology last week.

Another top story covered the topline findings from the phase 3 DELIVER trial, which showed that dapagliflozin (Farxiga; AstraZeneca) reduced both cardiovascular mortality and worsening heart failure in patients with heart failure with mildly reduced or preserved ejection fraction.
