Carlson, Peggy, Ed.
The technology explosion in medical education has led to the use of computer models, videotapes, interactive videos, and state-of-the-art simulators in medical training. This booklet describes alternatives to using animals in medical education. Although it is mainly intended to describe products applicable to medical school courses, high-quality, non-animal teaching methods can also be used in graduate medical education. Sections include: (1) Multiple Organ Systems; (2) Cardiovascular Physiology; (3) Clinical Simulators; (4) Pulmonary Physiology; (5) Renal Physiology; (6) Gastrointestinal Function; (7) Acid-Base Physiology; (8) Muscle Function; and (9) Manual Skills.
