The game will start by displaying some basic information like the age and major symptoms of the patient's medical condition. The player will then assess the patient by clicking on different body parts, like checking the airway to determine if the patient is breathing properly.

"In this format, the patient will respond in appearance to what is going on. If in shock, there will be a pale,
