Hemorrhage Intensive Severity and Survivability (HISS) Score
Dear Trauma Physician:
Improving patient outcome following major hemorrhaging trauma is a noteworthy goal of our group. We propose to employ indwelling physiological status monitoring biosensors and data fusion algorithms to serve as your adjunct to care. It would be of great help to us if you could spend a few minutes to give your expert opinion regarding the attached Sensible Fictitious Rationalized Patient (SFRP) Data Set against your clinical experience for the hemorrhaging patient by:
Using the physiological patient data provided (Columns 1-5) give your expert opinion to assign a Hemorrhage Intensive Severity and Survivability (HISS) score value within the column labeled – Doctor. The score ranges from (0: No Shock; 1: Mild Shock; 2: Moderate Shock; 3: Severe Shock; 4: Imminent death) in the excel pull-down menu for that particular avatar.
We are simultaneously collecting data from multiple physicians such as yourself. There are more than 100 participants. This expert opinion will be used to guide refinement of the PSM Biochip as well as the development of data fusion algorithms.
The PSM-Biochip (Physiological Status Monitoring Biochip) is a minimally invasive penta-biomarker biosensor system which, when indwelling, continually measures lactate, glucose, pH(acidosis), potassium and oxygen. (Patent)
We appreciate your time and effort spent in giving your opinion and scoring the realistic values of the data set. We believe that this proof-of-concept would be a noble attempt towards the point of care stabilization of the hemorrhaging trauma patients.
