A new machine learning technique for predicting traumatic injuries outcomes based on the vital signs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Traditional vital signs are an essential part of triage assessment in emergency departments (ED), and have been widely used in trauma prediction models. Previous researchers have studied the effect of vital signs scores on predicting traumatic injury outcomes and have found it to be significant. Based on the vital signs' scores, an Interpretable Machine Learning (IML) method is proposed to predict patient outcomes and is compared with various ML algorithms. Results indicate that the IML method has a comparable performance with a mean AUC of 0.683, and its interpretability would help in the early identification of trauma patients at risk of mortality.
