Capacity assessments usually track simulated patients and record medical interventions. The patient status can be either static or dynamic.
Both approaches have limitations. Therefore, a computer based dynamic patient model that models the human physiology and can be subjected to trauma has been designed. The dynamic patient model responds to the consequences of trauma over time. The computer model can simulate a large number of patients of different age, sex and comorbidity, such as the passengers in a fictitious bus accident. The dynamic patient model could be used to train medical students, be implemented in the stochastic capability assessment simulator, or used to assess medical outcome of simulated patients in exercises.
