About Our Test Lungs
We offer test lungs and breathing simulators to help you take your ventilator training and testing to the next level. Our products enable you to simulate patients from neonatal to adult and can be used with any ventilator.
Whether you’re looking for a basic test lung to simulate changes in resistance and compliance, an advanced simulator to craft evolving patient scenarios including spontaneous breathing, or even a respiratory-based manikin, we can help you find the solution that is right for you.

With the RespiSim® System, IngMar Medical has created a respiratory flight simulator that enables intuitive, interactive, and highly effective ventilator management training. Teaching ventilator management with the RespiSim System results in time savings for instructors, more consistent training, higher skill levels, and ultimately better patient care. Watch our video demonstration of a hands-on tension pneumothorax scenario using our respiratory-based manikin simulator.
The ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator allows you to craft virtually any lung model with real life respiration simulation scenarios from neonatal to adult patients. A unique feature of the ASL 5000 is its ability to breathe spontaneously while being ventilated, so it is ideal for training and testing on advanced ventilator modes. The ASL 5000 is software-controlled, and this video shows what’s new in our latest release – Software 3.5.
In addition to hands-on clinician training, the ASL 5000 is also commonly used for research and development of ventilators and other respiratory devices. This video demonstrates our built-in Test Automation Interface which enables users to integrate the ASL 5000 into their proprietary systems for automated device testing.
