PhD Scholarship offer (Thèse CIFRE)


1. Context and Objectives of the PhD thesis:

Atelectasis is a condition in which the lungs do not expand fully during inhalation, resulting in reduced oxygenation of the blood. It occurs when the air sacs, known as alveoli, in the lungs deflate or collapse, either partially or completely. This can be caused by a blockage of the airways, such as mucus or a foreign object, or by pressure on the lung, such as from a tumor or fluid buildup. Atelectasis can also be a complication of surgery, particularly when the patient is under general anesthesia and not taking deep breaths. Symptoms may include shortness of breath, cough, chest pain, and low oxygen levels. Treatment typically involves addressing the underlying cause and using techniques such as deep breathing exercises, chest physiotherapy, and/or oxygen therapy.
PhD thesis objectives: The project aims to develop innovative artificial intelligence-based approaches for the automatic detection and monitoring of atelectasis symptoms by analyzing different data acquired using different sensors.
Context of the PhD: This PhD is an industrial PhD (Thèse CIFRE) in collaboration and co-supervision between two universities in France: Université Paris-Est Créteil and Université Polytechnique Hauts-De-France. The host company is SAMDOC ( . Samdoc is interested in digital clinical observation, a key player in healthcare innovation. Samdoc provides a new generation of health data thanks to its SMTS (Smart Metrics Tracking System) technology: a unique system for capturing and monitoring a patient's clinical observation parameters remotely, continuously and in real time. The PhD candidate will be also co-supervised by clinicians from SAMDOC.
