Abstract

MEDAS is a multicomponent computer aided medical decision and information system for emergency and critical care medicine. The capabilities of the system are briefly outlined and the diagnostic and treatment components are described in more detail. For diagnosis a modified version of the sequential Bayesian approach is utilized. This version allows simultaneous diagnosis of multiple disorders. For treatment, a modular approach is adopted by which complex protocols are viewed as a hierarchical structure of low level modules.
