Abstract A vital sign monitoring system was developed for the Patient Data Management System (PDMS) of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Montreal Children's Hospital. Fourteen bedside monitors were linked via a Local Area Network (LAN) to a personal computer acting as a medical, nursing, and administrative decision support tool. This paper discusses the implementation of the Expert Monitoring System (EMS) module of the PDMS and some evaluation results for the expert system. [The system is implemented on an IBM PS/2 Model 80 with an 8514 display running the OS/2 operating system.]
