Abstract:

The scope of work in this Phase I research centered on three areas 1 data acquisition, 2 neural network design, and 3 system architecture design. In the first area of this research, a triage database was located containing about 175,000 patients. This data will be used in the Phase II research. The second area of this research was a designs and prototype of a neural network which was able to successfully identify the triage status of patients over 9O of the time. It was able to do this in under 1 second. This prototype will be expanded upon and improved in Phase II. The third area focused on generating an overall program architecture which will allow for additional decision support systems to be added over time, such as diagnoses and treatment recommendations, and sensor additions and malfunctions.
