Scientific Questions Being Studied
We intend to use this dataset in MED299 at UC San Diego in order to teach students about cloud computing and informatics.
- Disease Focused Research (Sepsis )
Sepsis is one of the country’s most urgent systemic health threats. Each year, more than 1.5 million people in the U.S. get sepsis. Sepsis kills a quarter-million Americans each year. Sepsis can occur when a trauma or an infection – often caused by a superbug or drug-resistant bacteria in the skin, lungs or urinary tract – triggers a chain reaction throughout the body. Without timely recognition and treatment, it can rapidly cause tissue damage, organ failure, and death; each hour treatment of sepsis is delayed mortality risk increases by an additional 4%. One in three patients who die in a hospital have sepsis. We intend to use regression analysis to study the factors that contribute to sepsis readmission.
Successful prevention and management of sepsis, septic shock, and organ injury rely on the ability of clinicians to anticipate and estimate the risk, and administer the right life-saving treatments (e.g., antibiotics, fluids and vasopressors) at the right time.
