Conflict of interest
AJ.E. Seely is Founder and Board Chair of Therapeutic Monitoring Systems (TMS); TMS is developing and commercializing waveform-based variability-derived clinical decision support tools in order to improve care for patients at risk of or with existing critical illness. A.J.E. Seely and C.L. Herry are co-inventors on patents related to physiological waveform assessment and variability analysis. Otherwise, there are no conflicts of interest to declare, financial or otherwise.
The study was approved by the University of Ottawa Research Ethics Board and conforms to the principles outlined in the Declaration of Helsinki.
