Pulse Physiology Explorer
The Pulse Physiology Engine is a powerful tool for simulating full body human physiology. However, without a visualization tool the information is difficult to understand. The Pulse Physiology Explorer is built on Qt to provide a visualization tool to intuitively interact and view data generated by Pulse.

The Explorer is still under development and still very experimental. If you have any suggestions or questions about the Explorer, or would like to help develop it, please post on our Discourse Channel. If you would like to help develop, take a look at our issues.
NOTE to Mac users, the PulseExplorer.app is not signed and will need to be run via Terminal by starting with this command from the unzipped directory :
NOTE to Windows users, There is a known issue with Intel graphics chipset drivers on Windows 10. If your system also has a discrete GPU (such as an nVidia card), make sure that it is being used for the PulseExplorer.exe by adding it to the nVidia control panel in the Windows control panel.
NOTE to Linux users, Still trying to figure out how to deploy Qt in linux builds successfully. For now, your best bet is to get Qt and build the explorer.
Running the Explorer
To start the Explorer, run the appropriate batch/shell script.
- Windows users, execute the PulseExplorer.bat file at the root of the zip
- Linux users, execute the PulseExplorer.sh file at the root of the zip
After starting the Explorer, you will be presented with a set of options that different functional aspects of the Pulse engine for you to explore.
The Pulse Editor allows you to create (or load) a patient, dynamically interact with the Pulse engine, and view any of the data provided by the Pulse Engine. Below we provide a few tutorials on how to use the Pulse Editor
A showcase is a controlled scenario, in a specific situation, that automatically loads a patient state and provides a specific tailored set actions for a user to work through. Generally a showcase tells a story and steps the users through actions and what impact they are having on the engine. Showcases are good to for teaching a specific topic using Pulse as they can limit and control how Pulse is used. These are a simple way for beginners to experience what Pulse can do in a more controlled environment.
To start a showcase, select one from the showcase drop down control and click the load button.
