Prediction of clinicians' treatment in preterm infants with suspected late-onset sepsis - an ML approach

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

As a prevalent disease of preterm infants, late-onset neonatal sepsis has taken up a huge proportion of morbidity and mortality of newborn babies. We have been continuously capturing vital signs of preterm infants in NICU, and proposed a non-invasive method based on machine learning techniques to predict the clinicians' treatment on them. Then we provide evaluation of predictive models and prove their feasibility. Our models could help the pediatricians make wiser clinical decision, such as more accurate treatment, avoiding the abuse of antibiotics to some extent.
