MIMIC-II (Multiparameter Intelligent Monitoring in Intensive Care)
The MIMIC-II research database (Multiparameter Intelligent Monitoring in Intensive Care) is notable for three factors: it is publicly and freely available; it encompasses a diverse and very large population of ICU patients; and it contains high temporal resolution data including lab results, electronic documentation, and bedside monitor trends and waveforms. The database can support a diverse range of analytic studies spanning epidemiology, clinical decision-rule improvement, and electronic tool development.
* Database development and annotation. Collect and annotate a comprehensive new database from ICU patients to support research in patient monitoring. The final database will contain detailed physiological and clinical data along with UMLS-coded physicial annotations of hemodynamically significant events.
* Development of an advanced monitoring system. Innovative algorithms and clinician interfaces will be developed to assist in the annotation process and to create a prototype advanced monitoring system.
* Testing of an advanced monitoring system. Evaluation of the monitoring tools and interfaces will begin in the laboratory utilizing the new database. Later, industry constructed monitoring system prototypeswill be developed and evaluated in clinical settings at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
