Q: What is the volume of the QuickLung®?
A: 1.2 L
Q: Can I use two QuickLungs to simulate left and right lungs?
A: Yes. They can be T’d together in parallel to demonstrate compartmentalized lung problems (different compliance resistance leaks). See Dual QuickLung.
Q: How do I set resistance on the QuickLung?
A: The QuickLung uses orifice-type resistors which require a simple turn of the elbow connector to access one of three standard settings (5, 20, 50 cm H2O /L/s). Additional resistances can be created by adding the Parabolic Resistor Ring.
Q: Can I set inflection points on the QuickLung?
A: Yes. An upper inflection point can be set by using the enclosed velcro strap to restrict the expansion of the bellows.
Q: Can I use the QuickLung on any ventilator?
A: Yes, just like a real patient the QuickLung can be attached to any ventilator from ICU to transport.
Q: Can the QuickLung be calibrated?
