    Medical schools, both newly developing and well-established, are recognizing a need for visual and mechanical instructional aids for teaching medicine to future physicians and paramedical personnel. The analog computer has proved to be very useful for these purposes in our hands, since it can be used to simulate many human and animal functions. View full abstract»

    The on-line interactive-graphics digital-computer model of the normal and congenitally defective heart was developed as a basic research and teaching tool. The interactive graphics capability of the simulation system provides the user great flexibility in selecting the types of defects he wishes to study, and in allowing him to progress at his own speed.

    A third-order model of the cardiovascular system which is designed to illustrate biological system simulation to bioengineering students and to introduce the students to a maximum number of analog computer components is described. The extreme simplicity of the model allows the students to concentrate on the simulation and computation without the additional burden of physiological complexity. Heart... View full abstract»

    A number of complex cardiovascular system models have been developed at the University of Wisconsin largely as a result of bioengineering thesis work carried on in the Department of Electrical Engineering, using a large hybrid computer. Other work in modeling includes parameter estimation study and the development of new methods of modeling. This work has been carried out in collaboration with res... View full abstract»

    The present study was prepared in order to illustrate the gas exchange (O2 and CO2) between pulmonary blood and alveolar air. In the model, circulatory and respiratory systems have been separately simulated in order to obtain the driving functions of the interaction model. This last takes into account oxygen and carbon dioxide exchanges between alveolar air and pulmonary blood. View full abstract»

    A simulation of the human speech-production mechanism is described and its application to the area of biomedical teaching is indicated. For the group of students interested in the clinical and scientific areas of speech work, the simulation is particularly useful for showing how various parameters affect speech outputs, and also for helping estimate parameter values that cannot be measured directl...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1756 KB)

    Epidemiological simulation models to be used primarily to augment the teaching of epidemiology to medical students and other individuals concerned with public health and control of epidemics are presented. Interactive simulations are used to expose students to ``realistic'' epidemic situations and permit them to experiment with various control strategies. Criteria by which simulations for such tea...

    A simple problem in epidemiology is described. The purpose is to demonstrate how computers, analog im this paper, can be used to assist the student in visualizing a complex system. The very act of creating the necessary equations to describe a system forces the experimenter to crystallize his understanding of the system. When, and usually if, the computer simulation does not match the data, the in... View full abstract»

    In the study of biophysical systems, the need for simulation often arises because a system may be better defined by assuming that the simulation model characterizes certain properties of the real system. Techniques of digital simulation and dynamic analogies, which offer much greater possibilities for quantitative analysis and synthesis of complex biological and physical systems, have become impor...

    Some of the earliest biological system models used to guide the affairs of man were employed to avoid the ``bends'' in diving. A brief discussion of decompression sickness, as it can affect tunnel workers, airplane pilots, or divers, is given, along with an analog computer configuration to represent the situation. The configuration itself has proved helpful in aiding engineers to understand some o... View full abstract»

    Although often neglected in bioinstrumentation courses, direct calorimetry has important biomedical, biophysical, and clinical implications. Since direct calorimeters are usually considered somewhat esoteric, a simplified analysis of their design and operation is useful. Therefore, an electrical analog of the thermopile lattice common to most direct calorimeters was developed. This model can be us... View full abstract»

    A vector relationship similar to Green's theorem incorporating simplifications which can be made for impedance plethysmography is derived. The mathematics involved are simplified by the use of current density instead of electric field. Geselowitz's lead theory result [1] is rederived and a limitation of such proofs is discussed.

    A multisensory conversational learning facility is described which permits the visually handicapped to share the process and content of instruction of sighted persons. The blind student receives live or recorded audio and graphic instruction synchronously via his aural and tactile/kinesthetic senses. A novel kinesthetic terminal for the blind is described which permits ``visual'' perception of kin... View full abstract»
