I want to start coding a medical simulation game that will help pre-hospital personel learn treatment algorithms such as these found here for the state of PA:
I found this, which is similar to what I want to create. There si a nice paper that goes along with it.
Questions for the experienced coders out there… how can I represent this node structure (figure 4) with JSON, that includes verbose descriptions of the state (ie current patient status with vital signs), each option/Intervention (give epinephrine/ start CPR) and show the change that occurs during the course of the simulation…ie how any intervention leads to the next patient state (breathing improves, heart rhythm degenerates)
here is the game:
and here is the paper (figure 4 shows a structure for information organizaiotn)
here is figure 4 with their "node structure"
it’s similar to a choose your own adventure style of game
If you are interested in helping me with this project, it will be open source in a git repository…please let me know if you are.
if you are in the medical field and would like to help create the scenarios once the structure is determined, also please let me know!
