Download the latest installer for the ASL 5000® Lung Solution LLEAP plug-in (version 2.9) as well as all current product documentation below.

Please uninstall old ASL 5000® Plug-ins prior to updating LLEAP or the ASL 5000® plug-in to avoid functionality issues

For customer with LLEAP version 7.3 and below, please use ASL plug-in version 2.7.12 found at the bottom of the page

Release Notes (version

What’s improved/enhanced from prior version?

  • Fixed issues with connections to an incorrect ASL 5000® device ID

Known issues to be improved upon in the future

  • Sometimes upon the start of a simulation, the selected condition does not apply until the user clicks the “apply” button a second time
  • In certain situations, the Live Data PIP reading may display incorrectly depending on the waveform shape

Functionality notes

  • Peak Inspiratory Pressure (PIP) reading from ASL Monitor window may display differently from what is being shown on the ventilator when using Volume Control ventilation. Peak Pressure on ASL Monitor waveform should match closely to PIP from ventilator.

  • The user may experience minor waveform artifact in the ASL Monitor waveforms when using NIV such as CPAP or BIPAP. This artifact is likely attributed to the ASL 5000® sensing turbulent flow and pressure around the NIV mask.

  • Readings from the ASL 5000® with a manikin and ventilator are attempted to be kept within a 10% +/- accuracy range for values such as Flow, Pressure, and Volume. However, since the readings are being taken at two opposite ends of the system there may be instances where the values fall outside this 10% +/- range. These instances can include the use of Lung Models where high amounts of air trapping are present, instances with patient/ventilator asynchrony, the use of ventilators for which a circuit compensation test has not been performed, as well as leaks in the system such as ventilator circuit leak, ETT leak, internal tubing disconnection, or a stuck lung valve. Volume conversion settings may also have to be changed in LLEAP to match the specified settings of the ventilator in use (As Measured vs. BTPS, for example).

Release Notes (version 2.7.12)

LLEAP Plug-in (version 2.7.12)

What’s Improved:

  • Updates allowing new versions of LLEAP to be installed without requiring re-installation of ASL plug-in
  • Minor adjustment to default shape of spontaneous breath waveform resulting in a more sinusoidal shape
  • Updates to ASL Monitor breath detection allowing for monitored data that is more representative of the ventilator’s output
  • ASL Monitor volume waveforms have been changed to represent tidal volume rather than total volume

New Features:

  • Software support to work with the new SimBaby™ manikin
  • Automated backup and importing of customer patient models when updating or installing new versions of LLEAP software
  • Implemented compensations for adult and baby manikins to better align with ventilator outputs
  • Added diagnostic option to set up communications when the SimMan is set to a static IP address (staticip.txt)
  • User can identify whether or not a manikin is connected in order to apply appropriate compensations for ASL Monitor data
