New AI tool can help treat COVID-19 patients globally: Study

Updated: few hours ago

London, Sep 16 (PTI) A team of international researchers has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) tool that can predict how much extra oxygen a COVID-19 patient might need during hospital care.

The results showed it predicted the oxygen needed within 24 hours of a patient's arrival in the emergency department, with a sensitivity of 95 per cent and a specificity of over 88 per cent.

To check the accuracy of the AI tool, it was tested out in a number of hospitals across five continents.
