Lung Kit for SimMan FAQs

With this kit, you will be able to integrate the world’s premier breathing simulator, the ASL 5000, with the SimMan 3G! This will enable you to simulate a spontaneously breathing patient being supported on a ventilator.

Q: Which solution is right for me - RespiPatient® or SimMan 3G with the Lung Kit?

A: It depends. If you already own a Laerdal SimMan® 3G, or need a full body manikin, the Lung Kit 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 the SimMan + Lung Kit package.

Q: Can the Lung Kit be used with other Laerdal manikins?

A: The initial release is compatible with the SimMan 3G including Essential, Essential Bleeding and Trauma. Kits for other Laerdal patient simulators will follow.

Q: Can I run IngMar Medical’s Curriculum Modules through LLEAP?

A: No, this feature is only available from our RespiSim Software.

Q: Will installing the Lung Kit into SimMan 3G void the warranty?

A: Laerdal has given approval to modify SimMan 3G with the Lung Kit without voiding the standard SimMan 3G warranty.

Q: Do I need to have LLEAP software for my SimMan to use the Lung Kit?

A: Yes, the Lung Kit includes a software plug-in for LLEAP, which allows users to control the ASL 5000 from within the LLEAP interface.

Q: Can I install the Lung Kit myself?

A: Yes, the installation is quite simple; it requires minimal effort from the user and can be completed in about 10 minutes.

Q: Is the installation reversible?

A: The installation is reversible. Better yet, you can easily switch between using SimMan 3G with or without the ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator.
