Master assignments

CRPH welcomes students with a biomedical engineering, or technical medicine background. We are eager to supervise a wide range of assignments within the scientific, clinical and translational scope of our staff members. In order to assure a perfect match with the individual expertise and interest of members of our group scientific topics should be chosen accordingly, so that all students can maximally benefit from the supervision of CRPH staff members. If you are interested in a specific assignment or wonder whether we could act as a supervisor, we invite you to learn more about our team and publication list and eventually schedule an appointment with a CRPH team member via our office manager (j.g.gerrits@utwente.nl) to discuss all possibilities.

Assignment
Accurate identification of sepsis and prediction of patients at risk is essential to improve treatment. In this research, I try to predict sepsis within 48 hours among patients with early sepsis in the Emergency Room, based on several features from waveforms derived from EMG and PPG wearables with machine-learning methods.

Assignment
Though hypotension is common during surgery, its treatment is of more reactive than preventive in nature. My research focuses on advanced signal analysis and machine learning methods to predict hypotension, and guide haemodynamic management in the operating room.
