v0.31:Health screen

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about an older version of DF.

In the status menu (accessed using the z-status key), one of the sub-menus is Health. This sub-menu becomes available when a dwarf is appointed to the Chief medical dwarf position.
The z-health menu is used to monitor the health of friendly dwarves. A subject dwarf's status effects and injuries are cataloged in the health menu by hospital staff upon diagnosis. Some basic needs are automatically shown in the menu whenever a dwarf becomes hungry, thirsty, or tired. Doctors will begin treating injured or otherwise unhealthy dwarves only after diagnosis and when proper equipment is available.
Note: The screen is entirely mouse enabled.

Listed below are all of the conditions displayed in the z-health screen:
