Issue No. 01 - January (1975 vol. 8)
During the last decade, interest has increased in the use of computers in the delivery of health care services in the United States and Europe. One of the early applications of computers in clinical care was in intensive care units (ICU's) where computers were felt to be useful to nurses in monitoring the condition of these critically ill patients, and in alerting them to sudden changes in patient condition.
