To support the global restart of elective surgery, data from an international prospective cohort study of 8492 patients (69 countries) was analysed using artificial intelligence (machine learning techniques) to develop a predictive score for mortality in surgical patients with SARS-CoV-2. We found that patient rather than operation factors were the best predictors and used these to create the COVIDsurg Mortality Score (https://covidsurgrisk.app). Our data demonstrates that it is safe to restart a wide range of surgical services for selected patients.
Intraoperative hypotension is common and has been associated with adverse events, including acute kidney failure, myocardial infarction, and stroke. Since blood pressure is a multidimensional and measurable variable, artificial intelligence and machine learning have been used to predict it. To date, studies have shown that the prediction and prevention of hypotension can reduce the incidence of hypotension. This review describes the development and evaluation of an artificial intelligence predictive algorithm called Hypotension Prediction (HPI), which can predict hypotension up to 15 min before it occurs.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
