Harvey (Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator)
Harvey, the cardiopulmonary patient simulator, was developed by the Center for Research in Medical Education at the University of Miami and offers realistic simulation of the physical signs of cardiac disease: blood pressure, venous pulses, arterial pulses, precordial movements, ausculation, pulmonary ausculation and respiration (abdominal breathing movement). 26 cardiac disease states are programmed into Harvey.
