This project investigates the potential use of IR bedside video cameras to detect sepsis in infants. The purpose of this work is to allow rapid, real-time assessment using video of life-threatening sepsis with an app on smart phones.

Holsti and team will be using a variety of infant indicators, such as skin color, body movements, respiratory rate and heart rate to develop via AI an algorithm for detection.
