Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to understand the role of documentation in an intensive care unit (ICU), where the work was regarded as the control of a dynamic process. the purpose is to get implifications for design of the userinterface of a computerized inforation system. Interviews and observations were performed. Documents of different kinds were analyzed. The results show that documents are used as tools for coordination of values in time, for integration of observations and actions, for evaluation of process history, for controlling the structure of control, and to some extent, for coping with feedback delays. The doucmentation is on the other hand, of little help for surveillande in a minute to minute time scale or in coping with transient events.
