This smart speaker technology helps us to quickly and intelligently make decisions relevant to a patient's specific needs, added Seals, who is also the lead author of the study.
To reach this conclusion, the researchers at UCSF developed a device-sizing application for the Google Home smart speaker.
The application processes questions from a human voice and provides recommendations on the precise sizing of medical devices.
There are hundreds of devices, with more being introduced every day, making it difficult to determine the correct sizing or materials needed in every circumstance.
"This technology allows physicians to concentrate more closely on the care of their patients, devoting less time and mental energy to device technicalities," noted Seals.
In developing the application, size specifications were acquired using literature reviews for 475 IR devices, such as catheters, sheaths, stents, vascular plugs and others.
"Further research will look to provide information from electronic health records and patient clinical data, such as allergies or prior surgeries," said researchers.
