Make your SimMan ventilator-ready and train on basic through advanced ventilation with any real ventilator and any mode of ventilation
Use your new Laerdal SimBaby to simulate advanced ventilator training management scenarios with a spontaneously breathing infant supported on a ventilator. SimBaby is a tetherless simulator designed to help healthcare providers effectively recognize and respond to critically ill pediatric patients.
The ASL 5000 Lung Solution can hold PEEP at any clinically relevant level, including values > 20 cmH20.
The IngMar software plug-in integrates seamlessly into Laerdal’s LLEAP interface, adding real-time ventilation waveforms. You can select different patient types and disease states with a few clicks.
You can keep it simple and select a preprogrammed disease state, or customize by adjusting airway resistance, lung compliance, breath rate, and patient effort. You can also create and save an unlimited number of user-defined respiratory conditions.
Conversion is simple – your Laerdal Field Service Representative will install a physical adapter to connect the ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator and SimMan, bypassing SimMan’s lungs. To use SimMan without the ASL 5000, you simply unzip the manikin and turn a dial. This Lung Adapter come preinstalled in the SimBaby manikin.
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.
- 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. Use your SimMan or SimBaby to conduct advanced ventilation management training in anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, pulmonology, and respiratory care.
- Ventilator-grade spontaneous breathing (passive to 100 bpm) with Muscle Pressure from 0 to -100 cmH₂O (0 to -30 cmH₂O for SimBaby)
- Tidal Volume 2.5 L
- 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), and COPD, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), 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
- 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
SimMan® is a registered trademark of Laerdal Medical.
The ASL 5000 Lung Solution for SimMan is compatible with the following models:
- SimMan® 3G
- SimMan ® 3G Trauma
- SimMan® Essential
- SimMan® Essential Bleeding
You can manage both the ASL 5000 and SimMan or SimBaby 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 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.
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 may be the best choice for respiratory care programs who do not already own a SimMan. This 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.
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.
The Lung Solution is compatible with the:
- SimMan 3G
- SimMan Essential
- SimMan Essential Bleeding
- SimMan 3G Trauma
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.
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.
Please contact your Laerdal representative or provide your information to IngMar Medical who will connect you with your local Laerdal representative.
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.
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.
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.
The frequency of the etCO2 waveforms 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.
When connected to the ASL 5000, the SimMan and SimBaby have a total volume capacity of 2.5L (using the Standard ASL 5000).
Yes, any clinically relevant PEEP value can be applied when using the ASL 5000 Lung Solution (>20cmH2O).
