    Abstract

    As ventilators are becoming more highly developed, it is becoming easier to wean patients from sedation. This means that patients are more awake at a time when they can feel most stressed. Communication can be extremely difficult for this group of alert yet still intubated patients. ICU-Talk is a unique communication aid that has been developed specifically for use at this time. This paper describes the collaborative development of this computerised communication aid.
