AI Tool Is Built to Detect Which Covid Patients Will Recover From the Disease Based of Blood Protein Levels

Researchers may have developed a new tool that uses machine learning to better predict health outcomes for hospitalized Covid patients, and help physicians make more informed treatment decisions.

A German research team from Charity-University Medicine in Berlin – one of the country’s largest university hospitals – developed an Artificial Intelligence tool that can estimate how well an infected person will fare based off of a blood sample.

The levels of fourteen proteins found in a person’s blood can indicate whether a person who suffers a severe enough hospitalization will survive or die from the virus, and the tool developed by researchers can accurately asses their risk.

In times of crisis, where resources are especially scarce, the tool can help determine what patients require the most intensive care to survive, and who is more fit to fight off the virus themselves.
