Abstract:The modern ICU generates large volumes of complex and multimodal data. Interpreting and utilizing this information is challenging for the ICU Physician. By enhancing the ICU Clinical Decision Support System its outcomes in critical patients will be improved by providing real-time decision support, decreasing medical errors, and minimizing life-threatening events caused by delayed or uninformed medical decisions. In addition to basic patient demographics, pre-existing comorbidity data, and medication usage, it also emulate more event categories such as nurse-verified chart events, laboratory tests, and fluid balance records.
