Abstract : In this paper, we propose to use one of the well-known general theories of time and change, namely the Event Calculus Kowalski and Sergot, New Generation Computing 4, 67-95, 1986, to represent temporal aspects in intelligent medical monitoring systems. In particular, we explore the application of CEC Chittaro and Montanari, Computational Intelligence 12, 359-382, 1996 an efficient implementation of the Event Calculus to the management of mechanical ventilation. First, we present the prototype we have built, which has been extensively tested on patient-s data from real clinical cases. Then, we provide a thorough evaluation of the obtained results, pointing out both strengths and weaknesses of the approach, and identifying a number of extensions which can be extremely useful to scale up the medical application of the approach.
