Realistic Ventilator Triggering
Simulate patterns such as Eupnea, Cheyne-Stokes, Biot’s.
Customize Your Patient
Easily adjust patient conditions based on resistance, compliance, spontaneous tidal volume, spontaneous rate, I:E ratio, and leaks
No other test lung is capable of true ventilator triggering at this price
Quickly create a patient scenario:
- Select a breathing mode (Eupnea, Cheyne-Stokes, Biot’s, Kussmaul or Apneusis)
- Customize parameters (breath rate, volume, I:E ratio)
- See how to set up patient examples: ARDS, ventilator dysynchrony (breath stacking) pediatric ARDS, pediatric asthma exacerbation, COPD
Simulate a variety of patient types with variable settings
- Correspond to IEC ventilator performance standards);
- Resistance (5, 20, 50 cmH2O/L/s)
- Compliance (50, 20, 10 mL/cm H2O)
Upgrade your existing QuickLung in seconds. The QuickLung can be easily mounted and detached from the Breather for maximum versatility.
Key features of the QuickLung Breather
Beyond a mere trigger, the QuickLung Breather creates advanced spontaneous breathing previously available only on higher end simulators
The QuickLung Breather allows you to quickly create a patient scenario by selecting a breathing mode (Eupnea, Cheyne-Stokes, Biot’s, Kussmaul or Apneusis)
QuickLung Breather Shown with the Pulmonary Mechanics Graphics Option. The PMG Module displays loops, waveforms and a host of other data on your personal computer for a complete picture of the interaction between the ventilator and the lung model
The QuickLung and QuickLung Junior can be retrofitted onto the Breather System base in seconds

A: Yes, with the QuickLung Breather you can simulate a wide range of spontaneously breathing patients. See instructions on how to simulate common respiratory patient types here.
A: Yes, the QuickLung Breather can be used on ANY ventilator, just like a real patient. The connection is made with an ET-tube.
A: No, you just need a regular power source.
A: The Breather is essentially an accessory for the QuickLung to allow the simulation of spontaneous breathing. The Breather has a motor-operated arm that opens the bellows of the QuickLung, simulating the inhalation of the spontaneously breathing patient.
A: Yes, the QuickLung and the QuickLung Junior can be upgraded with the Breather in a matter of minutes.
A: While both the ASL 5000™ Breathing Simulator and the Breather can simulate spontaneously breathing patients, there are significant differences between the two products. The ASL 5000 is a very flexible, digitally controlled simulator. Compliance and resistance settings are made along a continuum, thus it can be programmed to simulate almost any type of patient (neonatal to adult), even a patient whose condition gradually changes over time. It is also extremely accurate.
The ASL 5000 is part of the RespiSim® System, which provides a special user interface for educators, curriculum modules, and can be integrated into the RespiPatient manikin.
The QuickLung Breather is a simpler system. The lungs are simulated with bellows, compliance with springs, and resistance with orifices. Combining the compliance and resistance settings allows you to simulate quite a wide range of patients. You can select from five modes to create a scenario. To make a change in the patient condition, you must stop the simulation.
The QuickLung Breather is simpler to operate, and the movement of the bellows can be an effective teaching visual. It is priced significantly below the RespiSim/ASL 5000.
