Human activity recognition using inertial, physiological, and environmental sensors
This survey focuses on critical role of machine learning in developing Human Activity Recognition applications based on inertial sensors in conjunction with physiological and environmental sensors.
Discovery and validation of urinary molecular signature of early sepsis
The first ever study to use urinary cellular gene expression to study sepsis. Researchers identified alterations in gene expression unique to systemic and kidney-specific pathophysiologic processes using whole-genome analyses of RNA isolated from the urinary cells of sepsis patients.
Clinical trajectories of acute kidney injury in surgical sepsis: a prospective observational study
Among critically ill surgical sepsis patients, persistent AKI and the absence of renal recovery are associated with distinct early and sustained immunologic and endothelial biomarker signatures and decreased long-term physical function and survival.
Audiovisual modules to enhance informed consent in the ICU: a pilot study
Audiovisual modules may improve knowledge and comprehension of commonly performed ICU procedures among critically ill patients and caregivers who have no healthcare background.
Extended vertical lists for temporal pattern mining from multivariate time series
In this paper, the problem of mining complex temporal patterns in the context of multivariate time series is considered. A new method called the Fast Temporal Pattern Mining with Extended Vertical Lists.
Reinforcement learning in surgery
Patients and physicians make essential decisions regarding diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. These actions should be performed or deferred under time constraints and uncertainty regarding patients’ diagnoses and predicted response to treatment. This may lead to cognitive and judgment errors.

Resource use for cholecystectomy with versus without cholangiography: A multicenter, propensity-matched analysis
CONCLUSION: Compared with laparoscopic cholecystectomy without intraoperative cholangiography, cholecystectomy with intraoperative cholangiography was associated with decreased resource use, which was primarily attributable to decreased incidence and the earlier timing of…
Clinical Courses of Acute Kidney Injury in Hospitalized Patients: A Multistate Analysis
CONCLUSIONS: We demonstrate multistate modeling framework’s utility as a mechanism for a better understanding of the clinical course of AKI with the potential to facilitate treatment and resource planning.
Computable Phenotypes to Characterize Changing Patient Brain Dysfunction in the Intensive Care Unit
In the United States, more than 5 million patients are admitted annually to ICUs, with ICU mortality of 10%-29% and costs over $82 billion. Acute brain dysfunction status, delirium, is…
