Accurate and versatile
Bellow-style test lung provides more linear and predictable respiratory simulation than a bladder-style test lung.
No external gas source required.
Simple manual adjustment of resistance, compliance, and leaks.
No other test lung performs at this level of precision and versatility at this price.
- Compact 7.5” x 11” footprint. Works accurately from a table or suspended from a ventilator.
- Ventilator triggering: Detachable QuickTrigger® feature simulates a physiologically-correct inspiratory effort (negative pressure).
- Regulatory compliance: Easily adjustable parabolic resistance and compliance settings correspond to IEC 60601-212 ventilator performance standards.
- Versatile: QuickLung is the core of a modular system with options for a variety of applications.
Calibrated QuickLung: The standard QuickLung meets the needs of most of our customers, but we do offer a calibrated version. For more information, or to order the calibrated QuickLung, please call us at (800) 583-9910, ext. 133 or request information.
Key features of the QuickLung
Suspend your QuickLung from a ventilator for in-service training or trade shows.
Show compartmentalized lung problems (different compliances, resistances, and leaks) with the Dual QuickLung.
Add the QuickLung Breather Option to the QuickLung to simulate a spontaneously breathing patient in a variety of modes and patterns.
Use the QuickLung Jr. to simulate pediatric patients.
QuickLung is a passive, one-compartment test lung

The Calibrated QuickLung includes a certificate with a stated level of accuracy for both resistance and compliance settings while the standard QuickLung does not include such a certificate. The stated accuracy for the Calibrated QuickLung is +/- 10% for Compliance and +/- 20% for Resistance. The standard QuickLung accuracy is approximately +/- 20% for Compliance, and for this configuration, the accuracy of the Resistance is not validated or specified.

A: 1.2 L
A: Yes. They can be T’d together in parallel to demonstrate compartmentalized lung problems (different compliances resistances and leaks).
A: The QuickLung uses orifice-type resistors which require a simple turn of the elbow connector to access one of three standard settings (5, 20, 50 cm H2O /L/s). Additional resistances can be created by adding the Parabolic Resistor Ring.
A: Yes. An upper inflection point can be set by using the enclosed velcro strap to restrict the expansion of the bellows.
A: Yes, just like a real patient the QuickLung can be attached to any ventilator from ICU to transport.
A: To accommodate the needs of different users such as respiratory equipment manufacturers, biomedical engineers, and educators, we provide two versions of our QuickLung Precision Test Lung. The standard version is for users who do not need calibration and is offered at a lower price. For training applications, calibration is not necessary and even for testing applications, calibration is not always required. The most common testing application for the QuickLung is ventilator quality control performed by biomedical engineers. These customers often decide to purchase the non-calibrated version of the QuickLung.
However, if you are performing formal testing and validation, you may need a calibration certificate to show measurement traceability. The requirements for quality protocols related to calibration and accuracy typically come from your organization or from the manufacturer of the device under test.
The Calibrated QuickLung includes a certificate with a stated level of accuracy for both resistance and compliance settings while the standard QuickLung does not include such a certificate. That stated accuracy for the Calibrated QuickLung is +/- 10% for Compliance and +/- 20% for Resistance. Calibration is conducted using an ASL 5000 which has traceability to NIST via A2LA showing the “unbroken chain” of traceability to the SI. We recommend recalibration on a yearly basis.
The standard QuickLung accuracy is approximately +/- 20% for compliance, and for this configuration, the accuracy of the resistance is not validated or specified.
The standard QuickLung cannot be calibrated after purchase. This is because the resistance orifices are calibrated before assembly of the QuickLung. Once it is assembled, we cannot do the testing required for calibration.
If we can learn more about your application/requirements, we can work with you to be sure we match you with the right solution. If you would like more information about the calibrated QuickLung, please call us at (800) 583-9910, ext. 133 or request information.
