Research team lead by Prof. Fei-Pei Lai developed AECOPD System for Precision Medicine
Summary div style="text-align: justify"According to the statistics of World Health Organization (WHO) in 2018, Chronic Obstruction Pulmonary Disease (COPD) has killed 3 million peoplebecome the 3rd place among the top 10 leading causes of death in the world, which means one person dies for this fatal disease every 10 seconds. In Taiwan,chronic lower respiratory disease is at the 7th place among the top 10 leading cause of death. There are over 5000 people died for obstructive pulmonary every year.As one of AI project teams, MOST Joint Research Center for AI TechnologyAll Vista Healthcare (AINTU), Prof. Fei-Pei Lai’s NTU Medical Genie Team has developed the Acute Exacerbation of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) system (AECOPD) to offer COPD patients precise healthcare servicesremind them for early treatment by a smart wearable device, including to control their body state immediately by a long-term continuous evaluation. They inducted a machine learning program to develop the disease prediction models,and carried out a long-term assessment to 114 COPD patients by tracking their lifestylecollecting information of their environmentclinical data, such as Modified Medical Research Council (mMRC)COPD Assessment Test (CAT) for onehalf year. The precision of AECOPD system is up to 92.5can predict possible seizures in future 7 days by the data of personal activityenvironment updated daily,immediately inform medical personnel to start certain systems, such as health care, examination,treatment, in an earlier stage for the urgent case.
