PURPOSE: Hemodynamic instability indicator (HII) algorithm was developed to predict hemodynamic instability events of the patients few hours before the clinicians identify the HI, using data from US ICUs. Hemodynamic instability events were indicated by low systolic blood pressure (SBP) or fall in the SBP and typical intervention is administration of one of the following drugs- dopamine, dobutamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, phenylephrine and vasopressin. We tested the algorithm’s performance in predicting hemodynamic instability events (indicated by drug administration) and mortality on Indian ICU patients.
