Abstract: It has been a strong tendency to use information communication technology (ICT) to construct various education/training systems to help students or other learners to master necessary skills more easily, among which such systems with operational practice are particularly welcome in addition to the conventional e-learning ones mainly for obtaining textbook-like knowledge. In this study, we propose a medical training system for the operation of heart-lung machine. Two training contents, i.e., one for the basic operations and another for troubleshooting, are considered in the system.

Keywords: computer training system; skill science; support to operation; e-learning system; medical equipment; clinic engineer.
