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 and SimBaby.

  • Connect to any ventilator – just as you would a real patient
  • Use with any mode of ventilation including Pressure/Volume Control, Pressure Support, Jet Ventilation, APRV, PAV, HFOV, NIV, SIMV
  • Compliance – 0.5 to 250 mL/cmH₂O (0.5 to 15 mL/cmH₂O for SimBaby)
  • Resistance – 8 to 150 cmH₂O/L/s (23 to 250 cmH₂O/L/s for SimBaby)
  • Holds PEEP from 0 to > 20 cmH₂O
  • Easily activate pre-programmed respiratory conditions with variable levels of severity including Normal, Asthma, ARDS, Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), COPD, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and broncho-pulmonary dysplasia (BPD)
  • Lung parameters can be changed during scenario remotely, which have an immediate impact on the ventilator
  • Set independent inspiratory and expiratory resistances
  • Fully integrated with LLEAP interface (version 6.3 or higher for SimMan and version 6.7 or higher for SimBaby) to provide learners 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. View ASL 5000-created patient-ventilator interactions
  • 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. View a larger scope of training applications
  • Simulate scenarios where patient conditions change over time

Compatible Laerdal Manikins

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

  • SimMan® 3G
  • SimMan ® 3G Trauma
  • SimMan® Essential
  • SimMan® Essential Bleeding
  • SimBaby™
ASL 5000 Lung Solution LLEAP plug-in

You can manage both the ASL 5000 and SimMan or SimBaby directly from LLEAP, the Laerdal Learning Application, through the ASL 5000 Lung Solution LLEAP plug-in.

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 Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), Infant respiratory distress syndrome (IRDS), and Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). 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 and SimBaby™. This will enable you to simulate a spontaneously breathing patient being supported on a ventilator.

Which solution is right for me - the RespiPatient® Manikin, as part of the RespiSim System, or the ASL 5000 Lung Solution for SimMan/SimBaby?

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 or SimBaby, the Lung Solution may be the most cost-effective way of incorporating high-fidelity respiratory simulation into your program. Because the SimMan and SimBaby include a wide range of non-respiratory capabilities, this solution is also suited for inter-disciplinary training. 

Our RespiSim System includes a robust data analysis package which is typically utilized for clinical research or device R&D as well.

In fact, the same ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator can be used in both systems to give yourself maximum functionality.

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 or SimBaby.

Which manikins are compatible with the ASL 5000 Lung Solution?

The Lung Solution is compatible with the:

  • SimMan 3G
  • SimMan Essential
  • SimMan Essential Bleeding
  • SimMan 3G Trauma
  • SimBaby
Do I need to have LLEAP software for my SimMan/SimBaby to use the ASL 5000 Lung Solution?

Yes, LLEAP version version 6.3 or higher for SimMan and version 6.7 or higher for SimBaby is required for use of the Lung Solution. To upgrade your manikin, please contact your Laerdal representative.

Is the Lung Adapter 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.

The new SimBaby is “Lung Solution-ready.” There is no need to install an internal adapter, so the SimBaby can be returned to its standard configuration by unplugging the ASL 5000 from the side port and inserting the plug which fills that port.

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?

Anesthetic gases may not be used with the SimMan/SimBaby manikins.

However, you may use anesthetic gases without a manikin – by connecting the ASL 5000 to a ventilator directly.

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 or SimBaby wirelessly?

For both systems, the ASL 5000 must be hard-wired to the same network to which the manikin is connected using an Ethernet cable. The computer running the LLEAP software needs to be connected to that same network.

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

The frequency of the etCOwaveforms automatically reflects the total rate which is currently being simulated.  Otherwise, the shape of the CO2 waveforms is 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 are the SimMan/SimBaby lung volume capacities when using ASL 5000 Lung Solution?

When connected to the ASL 5000, the SimMan and SimBaby have 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).
