QuickLung® is an adjustable, precision test lung for ventilator testing and training. It is compact, easy-to-use, and capable of simulating a wide range of patient conditions, including patient inspiratory efforts. QuickLung is available in a an adult or pediatric model, both in calibrated or standard versions. Learn more in the “Options” section below. You can use QuickLung alone, or customize according to your needs by adding functions such as spontaneous breathing, intubation training, and a method to display loop and waveform graphics. Compatible with all ventilators, from ICU to transport.

Intended Use

  • Ventilator performance verification: combine with any flow/volume/ pressure analyzer for a complete ventilator testing system
  • In-service training and sales demonstration
  • Basic mechanical ventilation training

Impressive Performance

Accurate and versatile

Bellow-style test lung provides more linear and predictable respiratory simulation than a bladder-style test lung.

Easy-to-Use

No external gas source required.

Simple manual adjustment of resistance, compliance, and leaks.

Cost-Effective

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).
  • Calibrated version available. Learn more.
  • 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 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.

QuickLung Brochure

Q: What is the volume of the QuickLung - Adult Model?

A: 1.2 L

Q: Can I use two QuickLungs to simulate left and right lungs?

A: Yes. They can be T’d together in parallel to demonstrate compartmentalized lung problems (different compliances resistances and leaks).

Q: What is the difference between the QuickLung and the QuickLung Jr?

A: The QuickLung Jr. version has the same features as the standard version, with a smaller bellows and consequently smaller tidal volume (400 ml). Compliance settings are also lower (15, 6, 3 mL/cm H2O). Available in a standard and calibrated version.

Q: How do I set resistance on the QuickLung?

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.

Q: Can I set inflection points on the QuickLung?

A: Yes. An upper inflection point can be set by using the enclosed velcro strap to restrict the expansion of the bellows.

Q: Can I use the QuickLung on any ventilator?

A: Yes, just like a real patient the QuickLung can be attached to any ventilator from ICU to transport.

Q: Can the QuickLung be calibrated?

A: To accommodate the needs of different users such as respiratory equipment manufacturers, biomedical engineers, and educators, we provide a standard and a calibrated version of our QuickLung  and QuickLung Jr. Precision Test Lung. The standard version 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 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) via A2LA showing the “unbroken chain” of traceability to the International System of Units (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.
