Abstract: Multiple System Organ Failure (MSOF) remains a principal cause of death after major operative procedures. In a retrospective analysis of 132 emergency surgical patients, MSOF developed in 21. 240 integrated monitorings were derived from these patients. The records have yielded the first knowledge base for an original procedure developed to study this severe syndrome. The procedure includes a statistical algorithm and a method of knowledge representation and extraction by means of a Petri net system.
Keywords: knowledge based system; knowledge representation; medical diagnostic; multiple system organ failure (MSOF).
