Situation Awareness-Oriented Dashboard in ICUs in Support of Resource Management in Time of Pandemics

Year of publication: 2023

In a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) of 32 beds, clinicians manage resources 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from a large-screen dashboard implemented in 2017. This resource management dashboard efficiently replaces the handwriting information displayed on a whiteboard, offering a synthetic view of the bed’s layout and specific information on staff and equipment at bedside. However, in 2020 when COVID-19 hit, the resource management dashboard showed several limitations.

A Web-Based Platform for the Automatic Stratification of ARDS Severity

Year of publication: 2023

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), including severe pulmonary COVID infection, is associated with a high mortality rate. It is crucial to detect ARDS early, as a late diagnosis may lead to serious complications in treatment. One of the challenges in ARDS diagnosis is chest X-ray (CXR) interpretation. ARDS causes diffuse infiltrates through the lungs that must be identified using chest radiography. In this paper, we present a web-based platform leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically assess pediatric ARDS (PARDS) using CXR images. Our system computes a severity score to identify and grade ARDS in CXR images.

Hemodynamic assessment in children after cardiac surgery: A pilot study on the value of infrared thermography

Year of publication: 2023

Low cardiac output syndrome in the postoperative period after cardiac surgery leads to an increase in tissue oxygen extraction, assessed by the oxygen extraction ratio. Measurement of the oxygen extraction ratio requires blood gases to be taken. However, the temperature of the skin and various parts of the body is a direct result of blood flow distribution and can be monitored using infrared thermography. Thus, we conducted a prospective clinical study to evaluate the correlation between the thermal gradient obtained by infrared thermography and the oxygen extraction ratio in children at risk for low cardiac output after cardiac surgery.

Multimodality Video Acquisition System for the Assessment of Vital Distress in Children

Year of publication: 2023

In children, vital distress events, particularly respiratory, go unrecognized. To develop a standard model for automated assessment of vital distress in children, we aimed to construct a prospective high-quality video database for critically ill children in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) setting.
