Abstract: Real-time modelling techniques could be valuable to continuously evaluate individual critically ill patients and to help the medical staff with estimation of prognosis. This preliminary study examines the possibilities to distinguish survivors from non-survivors on the basis of instabilities in the dynamics of daily measured variables. A data set, containing 140 patients, was generated in the intensive care unit (ICU) of the university hospital of Leuven. First and second order dynamic auto-regression (DAR) models were used to quantify the stability of time series of three physiological variables as a criterion to distinguish survivors from non-survivors. The best results were found for blood urea concentration with true negative fractions of 45/72 (63%) and true positive fractions of 43/68 (62%). The results indicate that the dynamics of time series of laboratory parameters from critically ill patients are indicative for their clinical condition and outcome.
