Therapeutic decision support can be used to promptly assist clinical decision making process. This paper presents a novel approach to interpreting multiple data streams in intensive care environments, the resulting model can be used to correct and maintain patients' health whilst treating underlying illnesses. Rather than simply directing which treatments to be applied, multiple suggestive treatment pathways can be provided allowing several "what-if" scenarios to choose from. Hyper-heuristics are used to guide the treatments and therapeutic pathways selection. Algorithmic validation is made using a human cardiovascular system model parameterised with various post surgery conditions
