Indwelling arterial catheter clinical data from the MIMIC II database

The new PhysioNet website is available at: We welcome your feedback.

This dataset was used in the book: Secondary Analysis of Electronic Health Records, published by Springer in 2016. In particular, the dataset was used throughout Chapter 5 (Data Analysis) by Raffa J. et al. to investigate the effectiveness of indwelling arterial catheters in hemodynamically stable patients with respiratory failure for mortality outcomes. This dataset contains clinical data for 1,776 patients from the Multi Parameter Intelligent Monitoring of Intensive Care (MIMIC-II) database, and was the basis for the article:

The dataset (in file 'full_cohort_data.csv') includes a header with descriptive variable names. 'day_28_flg` was the main outcome of interest, while 'aline_flg' was the primary covariate of interest. There is a data dictionary (in file 'data_dictionary.txt') which gives more descriptive information about the variables.
