Bayesian networks for trauma prognosis


There is an excellent online resource produced by Barbaros Yet that summarises the results of collaboration between the Risk and Information Management research group at Queen Mary and the Trauma Sciences Unit, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry. This work focused on developing Bayesian network (BN) models to improve decision support for trauma patients.

The website not only describes two BN models in detail (one for predicting acute traumatic coagulopathy in early stage of trauma care and one for predicting the outcomes of traumatic lower extremities with vascular injuries) but allows you to run the models in real time showing summary risk calculations after you enter observations about a patient.

The models are powered by AgenaRisk.

  1. Business landscape across Southeast Asia is colorful, to say the least; ranging from countries with various stages of economic development to diverse social-cultural background, to inconsistent infrastructure set up, etc. Such local challenges weakened data and information flow which in turn reduce availability and quality being essential ingredients for decision making.
