Optimal treatments for patients with microbiological problems depend significantly on the ability of the attending physicians to predict sepsis level. A set of Data Mining (DM) models has been developed using forecasting techniques and classification models to aid decision making by physicians about the appropriate, and most effective, therapeutic plan to adopt in specific situations. A combination of Decision Trees, Support Vector Machines and Naive Bayes classifier were being used to generate… 
A Machine Learning–Enabled Partially Observable Markov Decision Process Framework for Early Sepsis Prediction
A novel real-time decision support framework for early sepsis prediction is developed by integrating well-known machine learning models with a well-established sequential decision-making model, namely, a partially observable Markov decision process (POMDP).
Pre-triage decision support improvement in maternity care by means of data mining
This chapter presents a kind of sensitivity analysis combining input variables in six scenarios and considering four different DM techniques in order to improve the pre-triage model and to discover knowledge for developing a new triage system based on waiting times and on a 5-scale of classes.
Predicting the Risk Associated to Pregnancy using Data Mining
To evaluate the process of Voluntary Termination of Pregnancy and identify the risk associated to the patients, Cross-Industry Standard Process for Data Mining (CRISP-DM) methodology was applied.
Pervasive Patient Timeline for Intensive Care Units
An interactive Pervasive Patient Timeline able to give to the intensivists an access in real-time to an environment containing patients clinical information from the moment in which the patients are admitted in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) until their discharge.
Step towards to improve the voluntary interruption of pregnancy by means of business intelligence
In this chapter, the BI system implemented in the VIP unity in CMIN is evaluated, some of the KPIs evaluated as well as the benefits of this implementation are presented.
PHM for Biomedical Analytics: A Case Study on Neurophysiologic Data from Patients with Traumatic Brain Injury
Using nanofiltration membranes for the recovery of phosphorous with a second type of technology for the Recovery of nitrogen is suggest to be a viable process.
Communication between Power Blackout and Mobile Network Overload
'BlaCom', an ICT-based concept for blackout communication, which addresses the time span between the occurrence of the energy blackout and the possible overload of the mobile phone network is proposed.


Predict Sepsis Level in Intensive Medicine - Data Mining Approach
A set of Data Mining (DM) models were developed using prevision techniques and classification models to enable a better doctor’s decision having into account the Sepsis level of the patient.
Data Mining Predictive Models for Pervasive Intelligent Decision Support in Intensive Care Medicine
Preliminary results obtained with a limited population of patients showed that this approach to reduce significantly the manual records and the possibility of developing an IDSS which can help in the decision making process can be applied successfully.

Economic implications of an evidence-based sepsis protocol: Can we improve outcomes and lower costs?*
The financial impact of a sepsis protocol designed for use in the emergency department can result not only in improved mortality but also in substantial savings for institutions and third party payers.

By defining the septic process through a detailed analysis of each of its component parts, the development of sepsis will be better understood and may contribute to improved therapeutic interventions for sepsi in the future.
Duration of hypotension before initiation of effective antimicrobial therapy is the critical determinant of survival in human septic shock*
Effective antimicrobial administration within the first hour of documented hypotension was associated with increased survival to hospital discharge in adult patients with septic shock.
The SOFA (Sepsis-related Organ Failure Assessment) score to describe organ dysfunction/failure
A so-called sepsis-related organ failure assessment (SOFA) score is created to describe quantitatively and as objectively as possible the degree of organ dysfunction/failure over time in groups of patients or even in individual patients.
Surviving Sepsis Campaign: International guidelines for management of severe sepsis and septic shock: 2008
To provide an update to the original Surviving Sepsis Campaign clinical management guidelines, the GRADE system was used to guide assessment of quality of evidence from high (A) to very low (D) and to determine the strength of recommendations.
