Hypotension, defined as dangerously low blood pressure, is a significant risk factor in intensive care units (ICUs), which requires a prompt therapeutic intervention. The goal of our research is to predict an impending Hypotensive Episode (HE) by time series analysis of continuously monitored physiological vital signs. Our prognostic model is based on the last Observation Window (OW) at the prediction time. Existing clinical episode prediction studies used a single OW of 5–120 min to extract… CONTINUE READING
