The Atrial Fibrillation Risk Score for Hyperthyroidism Patients

02/28/2020 ∙ by Ilya V. Derevitskii, et al. ∙ 0

Thyrotoxicosis (TT) is associated with an increase in both total and cardiovascu-lar mortality. One of the main thyrotoxicosis risks is Atrial Fibrillation (AF). Right AF predicts help medical personal prescribe the correct medicaments and correct surgical or radioiodine therapy. The main goal of this study is creating a method for practical treatment and diagnostic AF. This study proposes a new method for assessing the risk of occurrence atrial fibrillation for patients with TT. This method considers both the features of the complication and the specifics of the chronic disease. A model is created based on case histories of patients with thyrotoxicosis. We used Machine Learning methods for creating several models. Each model has advantages and disadvantages depending on the diagnostic and medical purposes. The resulting models show high results in the different metrics of the prediction of AF. These models interpreted and simple for use. Therefore, models can be used as part of the support and decision-making system (DSS) by medical specialists in the treatment and diagnostic of AF.
