Abstract

Sepsis, a dysregulated immune system response to infection, is among the leading causes of morbidity, mortality, and cost overruns in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Early prediction of sepsis can improve situational awareness amongst clinicians and facilitate timely, protective interventions. While the application of predictive analytics in ICU patients has shown early promising results, much of the work has been encumbered by high false-alarm rates. Efforts to improve specificity have been limited by several factors, most notably the difficulty of labeling sepsis onset time and the low prevalence of septic-events in the ICU. Here, we present DeepAISE (Deep Artificial Intelligence Sepsis Expert), a recurrent neural survival model for the early prediction of sepsis. We show that by coupling a clinical criterion for defining sepsis onset time with a treatment policy (e.g., initiation of antibiotics within one hour of meeting the criterion), one may rank the relative utility of various criteria through offline policy evaluation. Given the optimal criterion, DeepAISE automatically learns predictive features related to higher-order interactions and temporal patterns among clinical risk factors that maximize the data likelihood of observed time to septic events. DeepAISE has been incorporated into a clinical workflow, which provides real-time hourly sepsis risk scores. A comparative study of four baseline models indicates that DeepAISE produces the most accurate predictions (AUC=0.90 and 0.87) and the lowest false alarm rates (FAR=0.20 and 0.26) in two separate cohorts (internal and external, respectively), while simultaneously producing interpretable representations of the clinical time series and risk factors.

Early detection of sepsis utilizing deep learning on electronic health record event sequences
The timeliness of detection of a sepsis event in progress is a crucial factor in the outcome for the patient. Machine learning models built from data in electronic health records can be used as an effective tool for improving this timeliness. So far the potential for clinical implementations has been largely limited to studies in intensive care units.

Predicting sepsis in multi-site, multi-national intensive care cohorts using deep learning
Sepsis remains a global public health crisis with high mortality, and morbidity. An early prediction of sepsis could lead to earlier pathogen identification, resistance testing, and effective antibiotic and supportive treatment. Our analysis represents the largest multi-national, multi-centre in-ICU study using ML.

Dynamic survival prediction in intensive care units from heterogeneous time series without the need for variable selection or pre-processing
Data for more than 45,000 American ICU patients from the MIMIC-III database were used to develop an ICU mortality prediction model. All chart, lab and output events were treated by the model in the same manner inspired by Natural Language Processing (NLP) Patient events were discretized by percentile and mapped to learnt embeddings before being passed to a Recurrent Neural Network.

Clinical Intervention Prediction and Understanding using Deep Networks
Real-time prediction of clinical interventions remains a challenge with in intensive care units (ICUs) This task is complicated by data sources that are noisy, sparse, heterogeneous and outcomes that are imbalanced. We integrate data from all available ICU sources (vitals, labs, notes, demographics)

Early Recognition of Sepsis with Gaussian Process Temporal Convolutional Networks and Dynamic Time Warping
Sepsis is a life-threatening host response to infection associated with high mortality, morbidity, and health costs. Each hour of delayed treatment increases mortality due to irreversible organ damage. Despite decades of clinical research, robust biomarkers for sepsis are missing.
