Abstract

The need for intubated patients, within the intensive care setting, to communicate more effectively led to the development of ICU-Talk, an augmentative and alternative communication aid. The communication aid contains a database containing both core and patient-specific vocabulary. Many users of communication aids can provide direct input into the vocabulary, but intensive care patients are not in this position. This paper discusses the methods chosen to gather the vocabulary for an intensive care setting.
