Quicklung – FAQ

Q: What is the volume of the QuickLung®?
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 compliance resistance leaks). See Dual QuickLung.

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 two versions of the QuickLung. The standard version is for users who do not need calibration and is offered at lower price. The calibrated version of the QuickLung is available for use in applications such as ventilator performance testing. A Calibration Certificate with compliance and resistance data is provided. We recommend recalibration on a yearly basis.
