Constructing an Open-Access Bio-Signal Repository from Intensive Care Units

Stud Health Technol Inform. 2017:245:1271.


Bio-signals can be crucial evidence in detecting urgent clinical events. However, until now, access to this data was limited. We aim to construct and provide a new open bio-signal repository with data gathered from more than 40 intensive care unit (ICU) beds. For doing so, we completed the interfacing system with the patient monitors at the target beds and plan to expand this data set to more than 100 ICU beds. Once completed, we plan to publicly open the data to catalyze interesting clinical-event detection research.
