In the present work, we propose the application of probabilistic fuzzy systems (PFS) to model the prediction of mortality in septic shock patients. This technique is characterized by the combination of the linguistic description of the system with the statistical properties of data. Preliminary results for this particular clinical problem point that PFS models, besides performing as accurately as first order Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy models, also provide probability measures that provide additional… CONTINUE READING
