Dr. Amod Amritphale is an Interventional Cardiologist and the Director of Cardiovascular Research at the University of South Alabama, AL, USA. He is extensively involved in cardiovascular research. He is a pioneer and an authority in the use of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning Models for predictive modeling and exploring core outcomes in Cardiovascular Diseases. He is also extensively involved in research involving coronary artery disease especially refractory angina and mechanical therapies and leading world researchers for the same. Using Deep Neural models, Dr. Amritphale is able to predict those patients who may have an adverse outcome in the short term post procedure and hospital discharge.
Cardiovascular disease is the number one risk for mortality in women, claiming the lives of 1 in 3 women every year; that means that approximately one woman dies every minute, and ninety percent of women have at least one risk factor that could develop into heart disease later. “Since 1984, more women have died from heart disease than men have and the gap between men and women’s survival rates continues to widen,” (Go Red For Women). The symptoms of heart disease in women are very different and are often not acknowledged by patients and sometimes physicians.

Director of Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory & Interventional Cardiology, Dr. Amritphale is involved in taking care of patients with extensive, severe heart disease and peripheral artery disease with use of cutting edge technologies like Rotational Atherectomy, Chronic Total Occlusion interventions, Impella and Intra-aortic Balloon Pumps to list a few.
