Adventure by Harriet Gurganus
"...Emergency Room: Code Red is reminiscent of that environment, however, in
this virtual ER you can slow the pace to meet your decision making needs. You
can play in the easy mode (beginners only); the normal mode (most players); or
in expert (medical expert). Unless you have a medical background, I suggest
that you begin in the easy mode. The medical challenges in this game are
realistic and will call upon you to make split second diagnostic choices. If
you make the wrong choice you may damage your patient forever. As your
treatment regimes become more assured you can turn up the heat and advance to
the normal or expert settings."
"Created by actual ER physicians, this is not a game for the faint of heart
or weak of stomach. If blood makes you feel faint I suggest you keep an ammonia
capsule (once know as smelling salts) in your lab coat pocket. The tools for
your success are provided by the Legacy people. The scenarios are realistic.
The action is believable. The medical equipment and patient complaints are
exactly what you would see in every ER in the US. And the interface between
you, the patient and the patient care computer is easy to use and accurate."
