A patient data management system (PDMS) based on a local area network linking fourteen bedside instrument monitors to a personal computer is presented. The PDMS acquires real-time data and graphically displays their trends using interactive menus. Fluid balance data, medical dosage calculations based on the patient data, and medical observations are also managed by the PDMS. It provides this information for online use by the medical personnel, produces the special forms and summary reports, and archives this data for storage and retrieval. The PDMS is designed and developed for an IBM PS/2 running under the OS/2 multitasking operating system and equipped with an 8514/A high-resolution color video display. The design of the PDMS is described here, with added emphasis on its software structure. Sample results are presented.<>
