The Title, Abstract and keywords should identify the report as that of the assessment of the performance of an ICU mortality prediction model.
Engineers and healthcare researchers from around the world examine aspects of care, such as mechanical tests to investigate changes in lung function, the performance of a typical ICU syringe infusion pump, and a vital sign monitoring platform integrated with non-invasive sensors for neonatal ICU monitoring; quality control in ICU and collecting and analyzing observational data related to critical care issues; information systems in the ICU to collect bedside data, mortality prediction models, the real-time processing of biological signals, and networking of bedside instruments; and facilities, such as clean room technology and design recommendations for creating a healing environment.
