The highly interactive program is designed to teach the basic physiology of the circulation. It is divided into several sections accessed from a menu:
Introduction: structure and function of the circulatory system;
The Circulatory vessels:
1. Structure and function - blood vessel wall, arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venous vessels;
2. Blood flow - flow, pressure and resistance.
3. Peripheral resistance - peripheral resistance vessels and their control;
4. Blood pressure - measurement, regulation of BP (autonomic reflexes, hormones, intrinsic regulation, long-term control by kidneys).
High quality colour graphics are used extensively throughout the program and features such as animation and a Hypertext facility are used to enhance student learning. The program is highly interactive and uses several similar features to those described opposite.
