Artificial Intelligence in Critical Care Medicine


Target Audience
Healthcare providers of all specialties may benefit from the information presented.

This webinar will provide an introduction to artificial intelligence  in medicine, as well as detail artificial intelligence and clinical informatics in critical care. Dr. Lal will also discuss future steps and research opportunities in this area of medicine.   

Amos Lal is a Critical Care Medicine and Pulmonary physician at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester Minnesota, . His major clinical and research interests include Artificial intelligence in Critical Care, Clinical Informatics, infections in ICU, COVID-19 related research, Quality improvement and outcomes related research in Sepsis. Dr. Lal has published over 150 manuscripts in peer review journals internationally and has given presentations on his work at multiple international meetings and academic conferences. His diverse publication portfolio includes work in critical care/intensive care medicine and pulmonary diseases, infectious diseases and non-invasive cardiology. His other areas of interest include improvement in healthcare delivery in the underserved areas internationally by providing clinical care and teaching in developing countries such as Cambodia and Haiti. Dr. Lal is an elected Fellow of American College of Physicians, In-training Steering committee member for Society of Critical Care Medicine and a member of American College of Chest Physicians.
