  1. The medical outcome 2 has the highest weight since the course focuses on many aspects of physiology and physiological models. The medical outcome 1 is assigned 10% because it is to be considered only in homework where students should discuss, with medical doctors, the significance of the results of different pathologies simulation. The medical outcome 3 is assigned 10% because it is to be considered only in computer-based homework where interaction between respiratory system and ventilator is studied
