CVANS: Virtual Dog Laboratory

UW Restricted




Classically, the Riddle of the Sphinx was a thorny one which caused its challengers to learn more about themselves, their knowledge, and their place in the Universe. Similarly, the 'unknown drug' lab was a challenge for medical students which caused them to learn more about themselves and their knowledge of pharmacology. In this self evaluation module you will be presented with a series of virtual dogs, each of which has been pretreated with some unknown drug(s). Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to figure out (from the pattern of BP responses) what pretreatment(s) had been given to your virtual dog. Always try to account for the data with the smallest number of unknown drugs from the list of choices.

OK, I'm ready to take on the challenge of the virtual unknown drug lab.
