The microcomputer as an aid to medical records management in a zoological park

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A system for computerizing clinical medical records at a zoological park was designed, using microcomputer system components. Records were entered and retrieved in natural language, with minimal coding of information. Commercially available computer programs were used to manage data from anesthesia, radiography, clinical pathology, vaccination records, and tuberculin testing records. Programs written in BASIC language were used for storing and retrieving animal inventory data, daily medical and surgical records, results of fecal examinations, and anthelmintic treatment records.
