ONLINE COVER Wired from Birth. Premature infants in neonatal intensive care units are routinely attached to monitors displaying their vital signs at all times to help alert clinicians of any changes. In this issue, Saria et al. describe a way to electronically analyze subtle patterns in the neonates' data to predict the babies' future health. With their algorithm, doctors should be able to tell which babies are headed for trouble and provide appropriate intervention long before irreversible complications occur. [CREDIT: Y. NUSINOVICH]
