NeoLung® is a versatile, hands-on test lung to simulate neonatal and infant patients in a very intuitive, visual fashion. You can quickly change the compliance, resistance, leaks and overdistension threshold to simulate a range of clinical scenarios.

Quickly demonstrate conditions such as stacked breaths, overdistention, “stiff” lungs, and leaks.

Intended Use

  • Infant ventilation management training and demonstration with no risk to patients!
  • Compatible with all ventilators featuring neonatal modes, from ICU to transport.

Easy-to-Use

Quickly adjust resistance, compliance, leak percentage and overdistention threshold.

 

Demonstrate Leaks

Demonstrate the impact of leaks on your ventilator’s tidal volume and minute ventilation as well as flow-sensing triggers.

 Cost-Effective

This simple tool creates visual impressions that last.

  • Demonstrate patient inspiratory effort and ventilator response in assisted modes with highly pliable silicone bellows.
  • Show overdistention with volume limit brackets.
  • Demonstrate high-frequency ventilation
  • Enhance instruction on ventilator graphics.

*Approximate values

 

Q: Can I use NeoLung to demonstrate high-frequency ventilation?

A: Yes. NeoLung provides a very strong visual impression and is thus a good tool for demonstrating high-frequency ventilation.

 

Q: How do I simulate over-distention?

A: NeoLung comes equipped with two over-distension brackets which limit the expansion of the bellows. Because there are two brackets, you can simulate two levels of over-distension.

 

Q: What ventilators are compatible with NeoLung?

A: You can use NeoLung with any ventilator you would use on a neonatal patient. You connect the lung via an ET-tube, just as you would a real patient.

 

Q: How can I clean/disinfect NeoLung?

A: NeoLung would not get contaminated in normal use and would only need a wipe-down with a damp cloth. However, you can bath-disinfect NeoLung using any commercially available disinfectant that is rated compatible with the more sensitive plastic materials: Lexan, Acetal, Copolyester, Polycarbonate, Vinyl/Urethane Elastomer. Heat is not recommended (no autoclave).
