Barotrauma is identified as one of the leading diseases in Ventilated Patients. This type of problem is most common in the Intensive Care Units. In order to prevent this problem the use of Data Mining (DM) can be useful for predicting their occurrence. The main goal is to predict the occurence of Barotrauma in order to support the health professionals taking necessary precautions. In a first step intensivists identified the Plateau Pressure values as a possible cause of Barotrauma. Through this… 
Clustering Barotrauma Patients in ICU-A Data Mining Based Approach Using Ventilator Variables
This model identifies the variables that have more similarity among the variables monitored by the ventilators and the occurrence of barotrauma.
Critical Events in Mechanically Ventilated Patients
The introduction of critical events which crosses a range of values and a pre-defined duration contributes to improve the decision-making process by decreasing the number of false positives and having a better comprehension of the patient condition.
Real-Time Decision Support Using Data Mining to Predict Blood Pressure Critical Events in Intensive Medicine Patients
The main goal of this work is to predict the probability of a patient has a blood pressure critical event in the next hours by combining a set of patient data collected in real-time and using Data Mining classification techniques.
Optimization Techniques to Detect Early Ventilation Extubation in Intensive Care Units
A case study with real data provided by INTCare project was explored, and several models like Evolutionary Fuzzy Rule Learning, Lazy Learning, Decision Trees and many others were analysed in order to detect early extubation.
Data Quality and Critical Events in Ventilation: An Intensive Care study
The critical events concept was applied to the ventilation system, and a quality assessment of the collected data was performed when a new value arrived, and some interesting results were achieved.
Data Quality and Critical Events in Ventilation
The data quality assessment is a critical task in Intensive Care Units (ICUs). In the ICUs the patients are continuously monitored and the values are collected in real-time through data streaming
Clinical Validation of Single-Chamber Model-Based Algorithms Used to Estimate Respiratory Compliance
This work establishes an open, and clinically validated dataset comprising data from both mechanical lungs and nearly 40,000 breaths from 18 intubated patients, and evaluates 15 different algorithms that use the “single chamber” model of estimating respiratory compliance, showing which specific algorithms work best clinically under varying mode and asynchrony scenarios.
CENTERIS / ProjMAN / HCist 2015 October 7-9 , 2015 Intelligent Decision Support to predict patient Barotrauma risk in Intensive Care Units
The feasibility of predicting the risk of a patient having Barotrauma is demonstrated by presenting the probability associated by identifying the validity and viability to predict a composite variable.
Ambient Intelligence for Health: First International Conference, AmIHEALTH 2015, Puerto Varas, Chile, December 1-4, 2015, Proceedings
This paper presents a methodology for recognizing patterns of EMG signals given by arm movements in real time based on an artificial Neural Network, Multilayer Perceptron, where the EMg signals are processed by a set of signal processing techniques.


Pulmonary barotrauma in mechanical ventilation. Patterns and risk factors.
Values of peak inspiratory pressure, positive end-expiratory pressure level, respiratory rate, tidal volume, and minute ventilation were significantly elevated in patients who developed barotrauma as compared with patients who did not develop barotRAuma, however, these elevations in part reflect the high incidence of barOTrauma in the ARDS population, a patient group in which all of the above parameters were elevated.
Relationship between ventilatory settings and barotrauma in the acute respiratory distress syndrome
Clinical studies maintaining Pplat lower than 35 cmH2O found no apparent relationship between ventilatory parameters and pneumothorax, but analysis of the literature suggests a correlation when patients receive mechanical ventilation with PPLat levels exceeding 35-cmH 2O.
Incidence, risk factors and outcome of barotrauma in mechanically ventilated patients
In a cohort of patients in whom airway pressures and tidal volume are limited, barotrauma is more likely in patients ventilated due to underlying lung disease (acute or chronic) and was also associated with a significant increased in the ICU length of stay and mortality.
Real-time prediction of organ failure and outcome in intensive medicine
The INTCare system, an Intelligent Decision Support System for intensive medicine, is presented, proving that it is possible to use online and real-time data to make accurate predictions for the next hour, and will allow doctors to have a proactive attitude, with timely intervention, in order to avoid serious complications in the patients' clinical condition.
Pervasive and Intelligent Decision Support in Intensive Medicine - The Complete Picture
This paper is focused in presenting the system architecture and the knowledge obtained by each one of the decision modules: Patient Vital Signs, Critical Events, ICU Medical Scores and Ensemble Data Mining.
Expiratory time constant for determinations of plateau pressure, respiratory system compliance, and total resistance
The ƬE method obviates the need to apply an EIP, allows for continuous and automatic surveillance of inspiratory Pplt so it can be maintained ≤ 30 cm H2O for lung protection and patient safety, and permits real time assessments of pulmonary mechanics.

Data Mining Concepts and Techniques
Data mining is the search for new, valuable, and nontrivial information in large volumes of data, a cooperative effort of humans and computers that is possible to put data-mining activities into one of two categories: Predictive data mining, which produces the model of the system described by the given data set, or Descriptive data mining which produces new, nontrivials information based on the available data set.
