Video: AI helps spot early signs of sepsis

31 May 2022

Sepsis is a serious response to an infection that causes inflammation and it is a top cause of hospitalization and death globally. Septic shock has a very high death rate, so it is very important to catch sepsis early. A beginning-stage diagnosis can be hard because early symptoms are similar to those of other conditions, and the current standard for a sepsis diagnosis is not very well defined.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a new way that can be used to find sepsis quickly. Using AI algorithms, the tool looks at patients' electronic medical records as doctors add information and finds several key risk factors in real time. By marking high-risk patients, early help can be given, which can improve outcomes, lower costs, and even save lives. The video, provided by the Cleveland Clinic gives more information on how AI is assisting doctors in early detection of sepsis.
