PreemieLung cylinder kit for the ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator

The standard ASL 5000™ Breathing Simulator provides a high level of accuracy for tidal volumes from 2 to 2700 cm3 and is normally adequate for simulating neonatal patients. The PreemieLung Option is designed for customers with specialized applications requiring increased accuracy at low volumes. In a volume range of 2 to 200 cm3, the standard ASL 5000 geometrical volume resolution as a percentage of 10 mL tidal volume is 0.124%; with the PreemieLung, the resolution increases to 0.0164%.
