Prescience: Helping Doctors Predict the Future

University of Washington

UW engineers developed a new machine-learning system that can help anesthesiologists predict the likelihood that a patient will experience low blood oxygen levels during surgery. This condition, called hypoxemia, can lead to serious consequences, such as infections and abnormal heart behavior. The team’s system also gives real-world explanations behind its predictions. The researchers estimate that it could improve the ability of anesthesiologists to prevent 2.4 million more hypoxemia cases in the United States every year.
