Abstract:

FLUIDMOD is an interactive program for student practice and instruction in the medical treatment of fluid and electrolyte problems in human patients. The FLUIDMOD program uses a mathematical model of the patient so that a student, sitting at a graphics console, may work his way completely through the sequence of steps of a given therapeutic problem. In this manner, he is actively involved in simulated patient management. In addition, FLUIDMOD contains interactive programs to simulate the clinical patient-management environment doctors orders, nursing notes, the patient chart and record, etc., are provided. Finally, FLUIDMOD will eventually contain instructional programs to which the student may branch as required. Author
