Dear Sir.:                                       Fl 11/09/92

    I would like to know the  intend of this  list  and if I
could obtain some replies.

    I am a researcher tacking part of Biomedical Engineering
Group Laboratory of Electrical Engineering Department at the
Federal University of  Santa  Catarina. We  develop   little
biomedical equipments  and  Expest Systems - such a Hospital
Infection Control Aid and a  Hybrid  System  (rule-based and
neural  network  based)  for  Proposal  and   Evaluation  of
Anesthesian Plan.

    I am a master degree student, now, grapple in develop  a
Expert Network  (also  called,  hybrid  system:  those  whom
combine  neural  networks   with   rule-based  methods)  for
Planning and Evaluation of  Plans of  Anesthesia, continuing
a  PHD  thesis,  for  Critical  Patients  (their  who   need
critical  cares) or Problem   Patients (exceptional cases of
patientes whom evaluate to critical patients).  I  have some
troubles choosing the  most  suitable  approach  to  develop
this system. I do not know if neural  networks could  be the
key to solve the main part of the problem,  because  we  are
dealing with  exceptions  that  probably could  best  solved
throught a rule-based method.  At  lately, there are  a  few
shells systems   applying  object-orienthed  technics   with
rule-based    or  frames  methods  such  the  new   Kappa PC
Application Development Systems   for   Windows environment,
from   IntellCorp.   Inc..     So,  I   am   interested   in
implementations   of  hybrid systems   using object-oriented
programming. Maybe, there will   be a  way to  link   neural
networks simulators   using   object-oriented   approach  to
another heuristical   languages such as Turbo-Prolog object-

    I would be glad if someone  could make  a comment  about
it, as well as indicate if there exists a _similar research_.

    Please, reply directly to me  as I am not   subcribed to
this list.

    Thanks a lot respect to this matter,

best regards,

P.S.: I am interested in subcribing in your list if not a
      large amount of material is normaly posted to it.
