Purpose of review Predictive monitoring is an exciting new field involving analysis of physiologic data to detect abnormal patterns associated with critical illness. The first example of predictive monitoring being taken from inception (proof of concept) to reality (demonstration of improved outcomes) is the use of heart rate characteristics (HRC) monitoring to detect sepsis in infants in the neonatal ICU. The commercially available ‘HeRO’ monitor analyzes electrocardiogram data from existing…

Predicting Neonatal Sepsis Using Features of Heart Rate Variability, Respiratory Characteristics, and ECG-Derived Estimates of Infant Motion
TLDR
For the 49 infants studied, features of HRV, respiration, and movement showed characteristic changes in the hours leading up to the clinical suspicion of sepsis, namely, an increased propensity toward pathological heart rate decelerations, increased respiratory instability, and a decrease in spontaneous infant activity.
Predictive analytics in the pediatric intensive care unit for early identification of sepsis: capturing the context of age
Early recognition of patients at risk for sepsis is paramount to improve clinical outcomes. We hypothesized that subtle signatures of illness are present in physiological and biochemical time series
Predictive Monitoring–Impact in Acute Care Cardiology Trial (PM-IMPACCT): Protocol for a Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
This analysis will strengthen the ability of health care organizations to evolve as learning health systems, in which bioinformatics data are applied to improve patient outcomes by incorporating AI into knowledge tools that are successfully integrated into clinical practice by health care providers.
Development of a Non-Invasive Procedure to Early Detect Neonatal Sepsis using HRV Monitoring and Machine Learning Algorithms
TLDR
HRV and Adaptive Boosting algorithm can be used to identify new-borns with higher risk of suffering neonatal sepsis during their first 48 hours, according to a minimally invasive and cost-effective tool.
Heart rate characteristic index monitoring for bloodstream infection in an NICU: a 3-year experience
TLDR
Elevated HRC scores had limited ability to detect BSI, and BSI was infrequent at any time during hospitalisation in infants with significantly elevated HRC scores.

TLDR
The diagnostic utility of the following biomarkers seems to be most practical in the early (interleukin [IL]-6, IL-8, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, neutrophil CD64), mid, mid and late phases of neonatal sepsis.
Predicting Infection in Very Preterm Infants: A Study Protocol.
TLDR
Study results will inform the design of an interventional study using temperatures and/or heart rate as a predictive tool to alert clinicians of cardiac and autonomic instability present with infection.
Prediction of Late-Onset Sepsis in Preterm Infants Using Monitoring Signals and Machine Learning
TLDR
This study shows that a combination of electrocardiogram-based, respiration- based, and motion-based features enables the prediction of late-onset sepsis hours before the clinical crash moment, based on multiple patient monitoring signals 24 hours before onset.
Prediction Models for Neonatal Health Care–Associated Sepsis: A Meta-analysis
TLDR
Prediction models for health care–associated bloodstream infection in neonates should be considered as guidance rather than an absolute indicator because they all have limited diagnostic accuracy.

Heart Rate Characteristics and Laboratory Tests in Neonatal Sepsis
TLDR
It is found that the clinical diagnosis of neonatal sepsis is preceded by abnormal heart rate characteristics (HRC) of reduced variability and transient decelerations, and a predictive HRC monitoring strategy based on multivariable logistic regression analysis that was developed at one tertiary care NICU and validated at another.
Heart rate characteristics: physiomarkers for detection of late-onset neonatal sepsis.
Abnormal Heart Rate Characteristics Preceding Neonatal Sepsis and Sepsis-Like Illness
TLDR
Continuous HRC monitoring is a generally valid and potentially useful noninvasive tool in the early diagnosis of neonatal sepsis and sepsi-like illness.

TLDR
The fundamental precepts are some potentially catastrophic medical and surgical illnesses have subclinical phases during which early diagnosis and treatment might have life-saving effects and teams of clinicians and quantitative scientists can work together to identify clinically important abnormalities of monitoring data.
Abnormal Heart Rate Characteristics Are Associated with Neonatal Mortality
TLDR
The abnormal heart rate characteristics (HRC) of reduced variability and transient decelerations accompany neonatal illness such as late-onset sepsis and are associated with an increased risk of death, and a noninvasive continuous measure that uses information collected throughout the hospitalization and that requires no data entry is proposed.
Heart rate characteristics monitoring for neonatal sepsis
TLDR
The experience in developing continuous HR characteristics monitoring to aid in the early diagnosis of sepsis in premature infants in the neonatal intensive care unit is reviewed.
Continuous Multi-Parameter Heart Rate Variability Analysis Heralds Onset of Sepsis in Adults
TLDR
Continuous HRV monitoring is feasible in ambulatory patients, demonstrates significant HRV alteration in individual patients in association with, and prior to clinical diagnosis and treatment of sepsis, and merits further investigation as a means of providing early warning of Sepsis.
Toward the early diagnosis of neonatal sepsis and sepsis-like illness using novel heart rate analysis.
TLDR
Newborn infants who had abrupt clinical deterioration as a result of sepsis and sepsi-like illness had abnormal HRC and SNAP that worsened over 24 hours before the clinical suspicion of Sepsis, leading to earlier diagnosis and more effective therapy.
Heart Rate Characteristics and Clinical Signs in Neonatal Sepsis
TLDR
It is concluded that clinical signs of illness and HRC monitoring add independent information to one another in the diagnosis of neonatal sepsis.
