SIMEDIS: Simulation to evaluate and optimalise the Medical Disaster management in disaster scenarios for the Queen Astrid Military Hospital.

Project Details


We generate realistic victim proles for medical disaster simulations based on medical expertise. We apply these proles in a medical disaster model where victim entities evolve in parallel through a medical response model and a victim pathway model. The medical response model focuses on the pre-hospital phase which includes triage procedures, evacuation processes and medical processes. Medical decisions such as whether to evacuate or to treat the current victim are based on the RPM (respiratory rate, pulse rate, motor response) parameters of the victim. We show how such a model can be implemented in ARENA. Special care is given to a exible
implementation in order to be able to handle a wide variety of scenarios.
