Robot tackles trauma's silent killer

April 17, 2024

A Johns Hopkins University doctoral student is developing an AI-powered robot that could one day help first responders detect and treat life-threatening internal bleeding on the way to the hospital. Ultrasound imaging is a critical factor in helping emergency personnel identify hemorrhages early, Al-Zogbi said. As a result, by the time the patient arrives at the hospital and imaging can take place, it may be too late. "Getting these images to the doctors early buys them extra minutes, which can make all the difference to patients," Al-Zogbi said. This will help ensure that patients make it to the hospital, where doctors alerted to their condition are waiting."
