In a project at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH), researchers have built an AI-driven test to screen for COVID-19, in the first hour of a patient arriving at an emergency department. The AI model - trained using laboratory bloods, blood gases, and observations recorded routinely during 115,000 presentations to Oxfordshire’s Emergency Departments - looks for a ‘biochemical and physiological signature’ of COVID-19.
