Hospital patients who need a ventilator to breathe are about to see artificial intelligence make their treatment more personalised. BEACON Caresystem uses an algorithm to monitor patient’s breath, resulting in more individualised care, shorter stays in the hospital and consequentially higher cost-efficiency. Thanks to European Innovation Council pilot funding, the ventilation system is currently validating its treatment efficiency in hospitals.
