PreemieLung Option


Add-on cylinder kit for the ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator provides increased accuracy in the neonatal respiratory range. Up to 8 times better geometrical volume resolution in a volume range of 2 to 200 cm3.

Intended Use

The standard ASL 5000 provides a high level of accuracy for tidal volumes from 2 to 2700 cm3 and is normally adequate for simulating neonatal patients. The PreemieLung Option is designed for customers with specialized applications requiring increased accuracy at low volumes. In a volume range of 2 to 200 cm3, the standard ASL 5000 geometrical volume resolution as a percentage of 10 mL tidal volume is 0.124%; with the PreemieLung, the resolution increases to 0.0164%.

Existing ASL 5000s can be retrofitted at our facility.

We appreciate that each customer’s application is unique. Contact us for a technical consultation.
