Researchers leverage artificial intelligence to identify sepsis within 12 hours
In a medical field like critical care, where time can mean life or death, a sepsis diagnosis is like the final buzzer.
Each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 1.7 million adults in the U.S. develop the condition. Sepsis, the body’s exaggerated response to infection, can cause widespread inflammation and organ failure. Identifying patients most at risk has relied on a clinician’s own discretion and experience treating sepsis.
