Virtual Anesthesia Machine (VAM)

The Virtual Anesthesia Machine (VAM) simulation, first implemented in 1999, is the flagship transparent reality simulation that led to the creation of the original VAM web site. The VAM is a simulation of a generic anesthesia machine with an oxygen-driven bellows ventilator. Flow of gases is not only made visible but is also color-coded.

The updated virtual anesthesia machine shown here is designed to work on modern web browsers. It is a work in progress.
