Machine learning for early prediction of circulatory failure in the intensive care unit

by   Stephanie L. Hyland, et al.

Intensive care clinicians are presented with large quantities of patient information and measurements from a multitude of monitoring systems. The limited ability of humans to process such complex information hinders physicians to readily recognize and act on early signs of patient deterioration. We used machine learning to develop an early warning system for circulatory failure based on a high-resolution ICU database with 240 patient years of data. This automatic system predicts 90.0 events (prevalence 3.1 resulting in an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 94.0 and area under the precision-recall curve of 63.0 validated in a large independent patient cohort.
