Abstract

The process of translating the knowledge base of the expert critical care nurse clinicians (knowledge engineering) into an expert system that will serve as a support for decision-making for the selected problem is discussed. The specific components of the subproblem area of decisions regarding the use of restraints to prevent extubation (and thereby maintain the airway) are being explored by the knowledge engineer. The rationale for decisions of expert nurses applied to use of restraints to prevent extubation are being imbedded within the expert system program.
