  • Skills such as intubation and needle decompression
  • Topics such as dysynchrony, weaning, lung protective ventilation, finding optimal PEEP, and many more

Simulate Almost Any Patient

  • Offers the widest range of airway resistance, lung compliance, and spontaneous effort parameters of any simulator
  • Holds PEEP at any clinically relevant level even >20 cm HO
  • Can be used with any ventilator (and any mode)

Use Laerdal’s LLEAP Software

Manage both the ASL 5000 and SimMan directly from LLEAP, the Laerdal Learning Application.

FAQs

The ASL 5000™ Breathing Simulator’s unique design makes it possible to precisely craft very realistic breath profiles. In fact, many of the ventilators in hospitals today have been developed using the ASL 5000.

ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator
  • 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. Use your SimMan to conduct advanced ventilation management training in anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, pulmonology, and respiratory care.

  • Tidal Volume 2.5 L
  • Use with any mode of ventilation including Pressure/Volume Control, Pressure Support, Jet Ventilation, APRV, PAV, HFOV, NIV
  • Connect to any ventilator – just as you would a real patient
  • Compliance – 0.5 to 250 mL/cmH₂O
  • Resistance – 8 to 150 cmH₂O/L/s
  • Holds PEEP from 0 to > 20 cmH₂O
  • Easily activate pre-programmed respiratory conditions with variable levels of severity including Normal, Asthma, ARDS and COPD
  • Lung parameters can be changed during scenario remotely, which have an immediate impact on the ventilator
  • Easily activate pre-programmed respiratory conditions with variable levels of severity including Normal, Asthma, ARDS, Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), and COPD
  • Set independent inspiratory and expiratory resistances
  • Fully integrated with LLEAP interface (version 6.3 or higher) to provide student with additional patient information such as blood pressure, heart rate, SpO₂, etCO₂, respiratory rate, lung sounds and more
  • Simulate scenarios with a spontaneously breathing patient supported on a ventilator
  • Adjustable (I:E) ratio. Inspiratory Time from 0 to 20 seconds and Expiratory Time from 0 to 20 seconds
  • Real-time display of waveforms and graphics
  • Create and save an unlimited number of user-defined respiratory conditions including pneumothorax, bronchospasm, pneumonia, cough, cystic fibrosis, flash pulmonary edema, and more
  • Simulate scenarios where patient conditions change over time
  • Compatible with SimMan® 3G, SimMan ® 3G Trauma, SimMan® Essential, and SimMan® Essential Bleeding
  • Developed in collaboration with Laerdal

SimMan Manikins

The ASL 5000 Lung Solution for SimMan is compatible with the following models:

SimMan® 3G, SimMan ® 3G Trauma, SimMan® Essential, and SimMan® Essential Bleeding

IngMar LLEAP Plugin Software

You can manage both the ASL 5000 and SimMan directly from LLEAP, the Laerdal Learning Application, through the IngMar LLEAP Plugin Software.

You can keep it simple and use pre-programmed respiratory conditions with variable levels of severity. These include Normal, Asthma, ARDS, Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), and COPD. You can also create and save an unlimited number of user-defined respiratory conditions including pneumothorax, bronchospasm, pneumonia, cough, cystic fibrosis, flash pulmonary edema, and more.

 

The ASL 5000™ Lung Solution will allow you to integrate the world’s premier breathing simulator, the ASL 5000, with Laerdal’s SimMan® 3G. This will enable you to simulate a spontaneously breathing patient being supported on a ventilator.

Which solution is right for me - RespiPatient® or the ASL 5000 Lung Solution for the SimMan platform?

Both of these solutions allow for hands-on ventilator management training with any real ventilator (and any mode of ventilation). If you already own a compatible SimMan, the Lung Solution may be the most cost-effective way of incorporating high-fidelity respiratory simulation into your program. Because the SimMan includes a wide range of non-respiratory capabilities, this solution is also suited for inter-disciplinary training. 

Our RespiSim System may be the best choice for respiratory care programs (particularly those who do not already own a SimMan). The RespiSim System is tailored to the specific needs of respiratory care educators, and we offer an extensive library of ventilator management Curriculum Modules which are not available with the Lung Solution.

In fact, since the same ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator can be used in both systems, you can even give yourself maximum functionality by purchasing the RespiSim System and the ASL 5000 Lung Adapter. The Lung Adapter includes the software plug-in for LLEAP and the hardware necessary for physically integrating the ASL 5000 with the SimMan.

I already have an ASL 5000, do I need to purchase the entire solution?

If you already own an ASL 5000, you simply need the Lung Adapter which includes the software plug-in for LLEAP and the hardware necessary for physically integrating the ASL 5000 with the SimMan.

Which manikins are compatible with the ASL 5000 Lung Solution?

The initial release is compatible with the SimMan 3G platform including SimMan 3G, SimMan Essential, SimMan Essential Bleeding, and SimMan 3G Trauma.

Do I need to have LLEAP software for my SimMan to use the ASL 5000 Lung Solution?

Yes, LLEAP version 6.3 is required for use of the Lung Solution. To upgrade your SimMan, please contact your Laerdal representative.

Is the installation reversible?

The installation is reversible. Better yet, you can switch between using SimMan with or without the ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator. You simply unzip SimMan’s skin covering and turn a dial.

How do I buy the ASL 5000 Lung Solution/Adapter?

Please contact your Laerdal representative or provide your information to IngMar Medical who will connect you with your local Laerdal representative.

Can I use anesthetic gases with the system?

No, anesthetic gases may not be used with the ASL 5000 Lung Solution.

Can I use the system in an oxygen-rich environment (used with 100% O2)?

The SimMan cannot be used in an oxygen-rich environment. Most customers using a mechanical ventilator will turn down the Fi02 setting as far as possible to avoid alarms during this scenario. However, the ASL 5000 can be used in an oxygen-rich environment, so if you wish to use the system in this way, you can connect the ventilator directly to the ASL 5000 (bypassing the SimMan manikin). RespiPatient, as part of our RespiSim System, can be used in an oxygen-rich environment.

Can I connect to the SimMan wirelessly?

The ASL 5000 must be hard-wired to the chosen network using an Ethernet cable. The computer running the LLEAP software can be connected wirelessly to that same network.

Do changes in the patient's breath patterns automatically trigger changes in etCO2 and CO2 waveforms?

No, the etCO2 and CO2 waveforms are adjusted within the LLEAP Patient Monitor as they were before the ASL 5000 Lung Solution integration.

Do changes in the patient's breath patterns automatically sync with the patient's chest rise?

Yes.

Do changes in the patient's breath patterns automatically sync with the patient monitor respiratory rate?

Yes.

Do changes made within the Laerdal Airway/Breather Window (R, C, pneumo, can't ventilate/can't intubate) automatically adjust the ASL 5000's breath patterns?

Yes.

What is the SimMan lung volume capacity when using ASL 5000 Lung Solution?

When connected to the ASL 5000, the SimMan has a total volume capacity of  2.5L (using the Standard ASL 5000).

Can I use PEEP with the ASL 5000 Lung Solution?

Yes, any clinically relevant PEEP value can be applied when using the ASL 5000 Lung Solution (>20cmH2O).
