In order to develop an algorithm for identifying acute deterioration (urgent intubation or cardiopulmonary resuscitation) in infants with parallel systemic and pulmonary circulation, continuous physiologic monitoring data of 25 patients were retrospecitively reviewed and analyzed.  20 events were identified in 13 infants.  The algorithm was effective in identifying impending events 1-2 hours prior to the event (ROC area 0.91).
