Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO), and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCH) have developed a new life-saving monitoring technology called VitalMiner that predicts hemodynamic instability episodes in intensive care patients.
Hemodynamic instability in blood pressure, particularly hypotension, is considered one of the most critical events that requires prompt and effective intensive care unit (ICU) intervention. Hemodynamically unstable patients do not have enough pressure in the circulatory system to keep blood flowing reliably to all parts of the body at the same time, which can lead to organ failure. Once patients become unstable, treatment is much more difficult, with an increased chance of morbidity or mortality. See link for rest of story.
