These webpages have been created to guide users through all features of Neuromon's CardioVascular Simulation. The main aim of the model is to integrate physiological knowledge about cardiovascular function into a single computer entity. The model does not claim to fully mimic reality. Nevertheless, it allows the user to study possible interactions of patho-physiological changes and therapeutical interventions creating a higher level of understanding. New insights based on the model are, of course, hypothetical and require validation in real patient studies.
