This work presents an important part of our telemedicine system for critical care units: a distributed module based on intelligent agents technology that is dedicated to the process management of a network for medical monitoring, including distribution and control of processing tasks and bandwidth management. The system provides the real-time acquisition and analysis of physiological data, the graphical visualisation of these data, and their transmission to a central system charged with the collection and control of all the information concerning the patient, including knowledge-based systems (KBS) for medical reasoning. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
