Deep learning model to predict the need for mechanical ventilation using chest X-ray images in hospitalised patients with COVID-19
There exists a wide gap in the availability of mechanical ventilator devices and their acute need in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. An initial triaging method that accurately identifies the need for mechanical ventilation in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 is needed. We aimed to investigate if a potentially deteriorating clinical course in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 can be detected using all X-ray images taken during hospitalization.
