Blood work: Technology simulates how legs bleed

from Office of Naval Research via Medical Xpress

To make training for combat medics more realistic, researchers at the University of California Los Angeles have designed the first detailed computer simulation model of an injured human leg —complete with spurting blood. Sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, the simulator was created at UCLA's Center for Advanced Surgical and Interventional Technology. The research team included surgeons, fluid dynamicists, biomedical engineers, mathematicians and psychologists. "This model truly is a breakthrough in how combat medics can be taught to control hemorrhaging," said Dr. Ray Perez, a program officer in ONR's Warfighter Performance Department. more
