July 30 (UPI) -- Bottlenose dolphins in the U.S. Navy's Marine Mammal Systems Program recently participated in mine clearance training during the Rim of the Pacific exercise. The dolphins, known as Mark 7 Marine Mammal Systems, are part of the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal program based out of Naval Base Loma, Calif. Technicians directed the dolphins to detect and mark simulated mines as part of RIMPAC SOCAL, according to the Navy.

Machine learning can predict low blood pressure during surgery

Machine learning can predict low blood pressure during surgery

Health
June 11 (UPI) -- A new algorithm can predict potentially dangerous low blood pressure during surgery. Researchers have developed machine learning than can identify hypotension as much as 15 minutes before it occurs, and are correct about 84 percent of the time. The findings were published Monday in the journal Anesthesiology. "Physicians haven't had a way to predict hypotension during surgery, so they have to be reactive, and treat it immediately without any prior warning," Dr. Maxime Cannesson, a professor of anesthesiology at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, said in a press release. "Being able to predict hypotension would allow physicians to be proactive instead of reactive." Canesson said the tool can save lives -- even with a warning only 10 to 15 minutes ahead of time. "By findi...
