Wireless monitoring and real-time adaptive predictive indicator of deterioration

PIPSQC is pleased to share the article, "Quality improvement in the PICU - a primer for intensivists" - which discusses quality improvement tools that can help transform the pediatric intensive care unit into a highly reliable and safe environment.

In addition, PIPSQC is pleased to highlight the new publication "Wireless monitoring and real-time adaptive predictive indicator of deterioration" - as well as the following resources on machine learning and predicting cardiac arrests:
