Abstract: During the past fifteen years, the field of artificial intelligence (AI) started tackling problems in real-time information management. To that end, several projects were initiated to help clinicians with their information processing needs in critical care environments. Such projects are commonly referred to as intelligent monitoring projects. This paper describes the important reasoning tasks and concepts in the field, discusses various approaches to intelligent monitoring, and presents the results of a survey of research projects which was conducted in 1992.
