From the Ted Talk by Akash Manoj: A life-saving device that detects silent heart attacks

Unscramble the Blue Letters

You may not know how intelligent your heart really is. It tries to communicate to your body multiple temis before fiialng, by indicating symptoms like cehst pain. These symptoms are triggered when the heart loses out on oxygen-rich blood flow. But remember I told you about the nerve damage. It silences these symptoms before a sinlet heart attack, which makes it even deadlier. And you may not even know the comomn spmomtys. Meanwhile, the heart also sends out certain biomarkers — cardiac biomarkers or proteins that are SOS messages — in the form of SOS messages — into your bloodstream, indicating that the heart is at risk. As it gets riskier and riskier, the concentrations of these cardiac baeoikmrr piorntes keep increasing abysmally. My device slloey relies on this data. The key is that these cardiac biomarkers are found in one of the earliest stages of a hraet attack, when someone is almost sure to survive if he or she gets prompt care. And my device is solely based on that basis.

Original Text

You may not know how intelligent your heart really is. It tries to communicate to your body multiple times before failing, by indicating symptoms like chest pain. These symptoms are triggered when the heart loses out on oxygen-rich blood flow. But remember I told you about the nerve damage. It silences these symptoms before a silent heart attack, which makes it even deadlier. And you may not even know the common symptoms. Meanwhile, the heart also sends out certain biomarkers — cardiac biomarkers or proteins that are SOS messages — in the form of SOS messages — into your bloodstream, indicating that the heart is at risk. As it gets riskier and riskier, the concentrations of these cardiac biomarker proteins keep increasing abysmally. My device solely relies on this data. The key is that these cardiac biomarkers are found in one of the earliest stages of a heart attack, when someone is almost sure to survive if he or she gets prompt care. And my device is solely based on that basis.
