The aim of SETH is to give end-users specific advice concerning treatment and monitoring of adult drug poisoning. SETH is developed with an off the shelf expert system shell (KBMS) and runs on a microcomputer. Technical choices were done according to this analysis, financial considerations and portability. Currently, the database contains 1000 French drugs from 75 different toxicological classes. The SETH expert system simulates the expert reasoning, taking into account for each toxicological class delay, signs and dose. Two phases of evaluation were performed. The experimental implementation of Seth began in April 1992 in our Poison Control Centre. Since then, 1100 cases inputted by residents were analysed by SETH. The extension of the knowledge base to child poisoning began in March 1993.
