With an aging population, complications after heart surgery – such as kidney failure, stroke and sepsis – are becoming more common. Could artificial intelligence be the answer? Our research aims to develop algorithms to accurately predict complications following surgery, in real time. With this knowledge, complications could be better managed, benefitting patient recovery and long-term quality of life, as well as reducing the strain on healthcare resources.
