Prediction of Neurologic Injury in Pediatric ECMO

Team: Team Beaver

Program: Biomedical Engineering

Pediatric extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is used in emergent cases to provide life support for critically ill patients under the age of 17. However, there is a high mortality rate of pediatric ECMO patients (40%) which has mainly been attributed to the risk of acute neurologic injury. The purpose of this study is to analyze and predict neurologic injury through the development of a supervised machine learning model using data from the Pediatric ECMO Outcomes Registry (PEDECOR) database.
