Although mechanical ventilation is a life-saving intervention that can maintain oxygenation in a critically ill patient, it can also lead to systemic inflammation and multi-organ dysfunction. The goal of our project is to build classification models using available features from patient electronic health records to predict physiological deterioration/organ dysfunction and mortality. This will ultimately aid in early detection and intervention for high risk patients in the ICU.
