ASCAT 2023 | Using consumer wearables to predict pain in patients with SCD

Caroline Vuong, MD, PhD, Amsterdam UMC, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, shares an insight into a study which utilized data collected from consumer wearables to determine whether an association exists between vital signs, such as heart rate and heart rate variability, and pain in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD). In the future, Dr Vuong hopes that use of models will be able to predict vaso-occlusive crises in the patients before they occur, allowing them to take preventive measures to reduce pain. This interview was recorded at the 18th Annual Scientific Conference on Sickle Cell and Thalassemia (ASCAT) 2023, held in London, UK.
