INNOVATION AWARD (Winner)18.10.2018
Un stéthoscope digital intelligent pour le diagnostic de la pneumonie de l’enfant.
La pneumonie est la principale cause de décès chez les enfants de moins de cinq ans dans le monde. Chaque minute, la pneumonie tue deux enfants de moins de cinq ans. La plupart de ces décès surviennent dans les pays à faible et moyen revenu, où il y a un manque important de travailleurs de la santé, d’infrastructures de soins de santé et de technologies de soins, pour le diagnostic de la pneumonie.

DeepBreath—automated detection of respiratory pathology from lung auscultation in 572 pediatric outpatients across 5 countries.
The interpretation of lung auscultation is highly subjective and relies on non-specific nomenclature. Computer-aided analysis has the potential to better standardize and automate evaluation. We used 35.9 hours of auscultation audio from 572 pediatric outpatients to develop DeepBreath : a deep learning model identifying the audible signatures of acute respiratory illness in children.
