Copyright, Authorship and Disclaimer

Ms Resi is a program that has been developed and is under development by a number of authors.  The physiological core of this software is essentially that designed at McMaster University Medical School, Canada and St. Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College, and thus inherits the copyright conditions of the original software (below).  Ms Resi is not subject to copyright protection and is in the public domain.  The authorship (Dickinson C. J. et al) is displayed when the program is opened.  Ms Resi is an experimental system under development.  The authors assume no responsibility whatsoever for its use by other parties, and make no guarantees, expressed or implied, about its quality, reliability, or any other characteristic in any application.  Use of the software implies acceptance of this disclaimer.  The Ms Resi logo (displayed above) is copyright, Mal Haysom 02/02/2009.

As in the case of other self-teaching simulations programmes that my colleagues and I have developed at McMaster University, University College Hospital and St. Bartholomew's Hospital Medical Colleges we have not, fortunately, been so hard pressed for financial support that we have had to restrict availability of the software to those who can help recoup the development costs, which have so far been met by our research and education budgets.  We are very pleased this is so and hope it may remain so, especially so that duplication of effort in many schools can be avoided.  My colleagues and I therefore make no claim to copyright of the programme itself nor of the manual examples in Appendix VII, though the remainder of the book is, of course, copyright.  We trust that other users will do us the courtesy of retaining the acknowledgements of authorship and sponsorship which are incorporated in the text of the programme, in subroutine QUERY [below], and which are displayed when a user first makes acquaintance with the model.

MacPuf is a model of the human respiratory system designed at McMaster University Medical School, Canada and St. Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College, England, by Dr. C. J. Dickinson, Dr. E. J .M.Campbell, Dr. A. S. Rebuck, Dr. N. L. Jones, Dr. D. Ingram and Dr. K. Ahmed.  He was created to study gas transport and exchange.  He contains simulated lungs, circulating blood and tissues.
