Abstract:

The functional design of a system to automatically capture combat casualty care data was defined. A prototype system was developed using a graphics tablet interfaced with an IBM PCAT compatible computer. Software written in Turbo Pascal allowed users to associate areas selected from a form with appropriate semantic information. This capability was implemented using quadcodes which provided the degree of efficiency needed for timely data processing.
