    A system was developed that assesses the presence of defined clinical disorders occurring in the ICU. The system uses a range of variables obtained by querying the ICU's patient database management system. After processing the obtained data, an estimation is given in how far a certain disorder is likely to be present. This is communicated back in a variable to the patient database management system (which can, if necessary, used as a trigger for an alarm). The set-up allows for integration of new algorithms to a system that is in routine use through a standard interface. In this way it allows clinical experimentation with new biosignal interpretation methods and hence can speed up the dissemination of research methods into products.
