critical care
  • Critical medicine must be given to a person immediately after they have been injured or affected by a disease. Drugs on the list of critical medicine must be stocked in the emergency drug cupboard. 

    In a number of areas in science, government, and businesses, data is now a major driver of innovation and success. We believe the same revolution will occur when data is used in the area of critical care and the development of more critical care medicine will be seen.

    There is a lot of work to be done by data analysts and data scientists with a large amount of data originating from critical care, as it needs to be analyzed and curated, making it possible for it to be mined effectively. Clinicians and data scientists must work together to explore and understand the secondary, meaningful use of Critical Care data. 

    “Health is Wealth” for without it there is no happiness, nor real success, the average life expectancy keeps on increasing as the use of technology expands.

    The huge change over the years has been clearly correlated to the advancement that has taken place in medicine and technology that enables us to live healthier and longer. Data science is playing a critical role in the healthcare industry as it reshapes and improving the sector. Concrete strategies to avoid diseases or specific health threats are being developed.

    Expected Growth in the use of Data Science in Critical Care

    There is hope that there will be expected growth in the field of data science, professionals should be familiar with the opportunities and challenges of Big Data and data science. More research can be done in the field of types of algorithms, applications, challenges, data science in critical care and other areas that are connected to health care. Some examples of data science projects have resulted in the successful implementation of data-driven systems in the intensive care units in some hospitals already.

    Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Clinical Settings

    Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence tools can be used in a clinical setting to help physicians to understand a disease more and evaluate patients accurately with status based on high-throughput molecular and imaging techniques and reveals the heterogeneity of the disease at the same time. Even the promise that machine learning and Artificial intelligence hold great promise and potential dangers at the same time which arises if too much trust is placed in decision tools and automated diagnosis.

    Researchers can apply supervised learning algorithms to data sets in which each patient’s record contains the set of clinical features of interest and labels specifying the degree of responsiveness to diseases (for example, ‘no’ response, ‘moderate’, ‘good’ conforming with the EULAR response criteria) Logistic and linear regression, decision trees and random forests, naive Bayesian classifiers, k-nearest neighbors and neural networks and support vector machines (SVMs).

    A function that predicts the output value for a set of unlabeled input values based on an acceptable degree of fidelity, can be derived when supervised learning searches for the relationship between a set of features (input variables) and more known outcomes (output classes or labels). Supervised learning works whenever the training data has the correct input-output pairs, which are labeled by experts in the field.

    How can you do all this? 

    Now that data scientists, are using machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data, data mining, data analytics, and business analytics to change the way many organizations and businesses are operating. Technology is getting more attention and it is becoming increasingly important for everyone to get connected with professionals like us at NextBee who can assist them with every aspect of all the new developments that are taking place in the new digital age.
