Specialized Testing with the ASL 5000

A group demonstration on using the ASL 5000 to address some common R&D testing challenges.

Taking place on Tuesday July 16 at 9:00 am Eastern.

Hosted by Dr.-Ing. Stefan Frembgen, President of IngMar Medical.


Do you experience this common challenge with your specialized testing?

I’m constrained by the parameters I can use to create my patient models. I need precisely defined, repeatable, and realistic patient models.”

If so, then join us for a demonstration of how the ASL 5000™ Breathing Simulator can alleviate this R&D roadblock. The ASL 5000’s accuracy, flexibility, and precision makes it an essential instrument for in vitro research on the performance of respiratory therapy devices such as ventilators, CPAP devices, nebulizers, masks, and aerosol drug delivery devices.

During this free, 30-minute product demonstration, we will use the ASL 5000 to:

  1. Test ventilator trigger sensitivity threshold
  2. Test the resistance of an element(s) in your circuit

Webinar: Training for Interdisciplinary ARDS Care, Using the ASL 5000 Lung Solution for SimMan

 


The course of treatment for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is complex and can require many different healthcare professionals to support a single patient for up to 4 weeks.

In this free, 30-minute webinar, you will see how SimMan® and the ASL 5000™ Lung Solution can be used to develop clinical and teamwork skills for ARDS treatment. We will present an interdisciplinary ARDS treatment simulation for advanced learners. This sample simulation features a nurse and a respiratory therapist working together to stabilize a mechanically-ventilated patient.

During this webinar, you will see an RN and an RT practice:

  • Basic assessment
  • Communication skills
  • SBAR training
  • Suction skills
  • Ventilator management

The ASL 5000 Lung Solution for SimMan, developed in collaboration with Laerdal, allows you to integrate the world’s most realistic breathing simulator, the ASL 5000, with the SimMan 3G, SimMan Essential and SimMan 3G Trauma. This means you can use your SimMan to conduct high-fidelity ventilation management training in anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, pulmonology, and respiratory care.

If you would like to conduct advanced ventilator management training with your SimMan, this webinar gives you the chance to see the system in action.

Co-hosted with Laerdal

Spring 2019 SUN Conference

April 24 – 26, 2019 | Mohegan Sun | Uncasville, CT |  www.laerdal.com/us/sun

Would you like to add advanced ventilator management to your simulation training program? The ASL 5000™ Lung Solution for SimMan® allows you to integrate the world’s most realistic breathing simulator, the ASL 5000, with the SimMan 3G, SimMan Essential and SimMan 3G Trauma. With this solution, SimMan can breathe spontaneously while being ventilated and hold PEEP at any clinically relevant level. You can use any ventilator and any ventilator mode, including NIV. 

Visit us at the SUN Solutions Bar at the Spring Laerdal SUN conference to see how it works. Learn how you can use your SimMan to conduct high-fidelity ventilation management training in anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, pulmonology, and respiratory care.

Using the RespiSim System to Educate at Scale

How do you ramp up advanced ventilator management training, for a large group of learners, who all need the same, consistent training?

We recently spoke with Matthew Jurecki, BS, RRT, Program Coordinator of Respiratory Education at a large, leading academic medical facility. Matt relates that the RespiSim® System has helped his facility overcome training challenges, such as scalability, that were previously problematic.

New Lungs for SimBaby!


We are pleased to announce that the  ASL 5000 Lung Solution  will soon be compatible with Laerdal’s new SimBaby. This will enable you to use the new SimBaby to conduct advanced ventilator management training in anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, pulmonology, and respiratory care.

With the ASL 5000 Lung Solution, SimBaby can breathe spontaneously while being ventilated and hold PEEP at any clinically relevant level. You can use any ventilator and any ventilator mode, including NIV. Resistance and compliance are minutely adjustable, allowing you to simulate a vast number of patient disease states. This will allow you to teach mechanical ventilation topics such as:

  • Managing IRDS and RSV
  • Adjusting the ventilator in response to a change in patient condition
  • Identifying and resolving patient-ventilator dysynchronies

Developed in collaboration with Laerdal, the popular ASL 5000 Lung Solution is currently compatible with SimMan®, SimMan 3G Trauma, SimMan Essential, and SimMan Essential Bleeding.

Opt-in below to receive updates on the development of SimBaby at IngMar Medical.

Webinar: Running a Non-Invasive Ventilation Scenario with RespiSim


Acute exacerbations of COPD are a frequent cause of admission to the hospital. Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is often the preferred treatment for these patients. However, using NIV presents special challenges to the clinician. To demonstrate an example of a possible NIV simulation, IngMar Medical will be hosting a free webinar: Running a Non-Invasive Ventilation Scenario with the RespiSim System® on Thursday, February 28, 2019, at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.

In this free 30-minute webinar, you will see a recorded simulation progress through the initial assessment of a non-intubated spontaneously breathing patient to the recommendation and initiation of NIV and lastly the management of ventilation and oxygenation.

If you are considering introducing simulation into your ventilator management training program, this webinar gives you the chance to see the RespiSim System in action.

Jessica Dietz (MSRC, RRT) Clinical Educator; and Liz Bolen, Account Executive will host the webinar.

This webinar has already taken place. Please click here to view a recording.
