A: It depends. If you already own a Laerdal SimMan® platform manikin, or need a full body manikin, the Lung Solution allows you to add high-fidelity breathing simulation and use LLEAP (Laerdal Learning Application) software.
RespiPatient is part of the RespiSim® System which is designed specifically for ventilator management training. Over thirty RespiSim comprehensive curriculum modules are available for use with RespiPatient. Oxygen can be used with RespiPatient. You can add options to RespiPatient to enhance training of auscultation, capnography, and pulse oximetry skills. RespiPatient is smaller, easier to store, and easier to transport to wherever it’s best to do your training. Finally, the full RespiSim Pro Package is less expensive than a SimMan platform manikin + the Lung Solution.
