Abstract(s)In a critical area as is Intensive Medicine, the existence of systems to support the clinical decision is mandatory. These systems should ensure a set of data to evaluate medical scores like is SAPS, SOFA and GLASGOW. The value of these scores gives the doctors the ability to understand the real condition of the patient and provides a mean to improve their decisions in order to choose the best therapy for the patient. Unfortunately, almost all of the required data to obtain these scores are recorded on paper and rarely are stored electronically. Doctors recognize this as an important limitation in the Intensive Care Units. This paper presents an intelligent system to obtain the data, calculate the scores and disseminate the results in an online, automatic, continuous and pervasive way. The major features of the system are detailed and discussed. A preliminary assessment of the system is also provided.
