Abstract In 1980, Janik et al described an on-line, dedicated microcomputer system for recording, reporting, and abstracting data on NICU patients. This work, conducted at the University of Utah Medical Center, has been described elsewhere and provided fundamental experience toward more recent production of the relatively inexpensive, semicustomized CETUS System 100 now [1980] available commercially. This chapter focuses on the CETUS 100, describing in detail its basic design features, hardware components, programs and their outputs, specifics of operation, and assessment of results.
