RespiPro Manikin

A major limitation of manikin simulators is that their respiratory mechanics are fairly simple. To effectively teach mechanical ventilator management, you need ventilator-grade lungs.

At the core of RespiPro™ Manikin is our spontaneously breathing ASL 5000™ — the world’s most sophisticated breathing simulator. Using any ICU ventilator, you can change a patient’s condition on-the-fly, or as part of a sophisticated scenario, with realistic PEEP and chest rise.


RespiPro Manikin is a specialized respiratory manikin with an anatomically correct airway and chest structure paired with high-fidelity spontaneously breathing lungs.

Intended Use

RespiPro Manikin was designed to give you exactly the features you need for resuscitation and comprehensive ventilator management training.

  • Enhance the perception of realism with manikin chest movement and expansion consistent with the simulated patient’s breaths.
  • Increase psychomotor abilities including CPR, intubation, needle decompression, chest tube insertion and more.
  • Move through the full scope of patient care from initial CPR maneuvers to bag-valve-mask ventilation and intubation, all the way to complex ventilator management skills and weaning.

RespiPro Manikin is part of IngMar Medical’s RespiSim® system for ventilator management training, an unmatched, all-in-one respiratory simulation solution for providing high-fidelity, effective simulation experiences.

The Manikin

RespiPro Manikin enables you to train the full range of airway management and CPR skills with anatomically correct airway, rib cage, “real feel” skin covering, and realistic chest rise. Replaceable tissue sets allow each learner a life-like and unique experience for training.

The Lungs

At the core of RespiPro Manikin is the spontaneously breathing ASL 5000 — the world’s most sophisticated breathing simulator.

The RespiPro

An unmatched, all-in-one respiratory simulation solution for providing high-fidelity, effective simulation experiences.

  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation – lifelike recoil during chest compressions
  • Intubation – orotracheal, nasotracheal, combitube, LMA placement, difficult airway (tongue edema)
  • Bag-valve-mask ventilation techniques
  • Tension pneumothorax
    • Identification of tracheal deviation and jugular vein distension
    • Either right or left tension pneumothorax (manually)
    • Needle decompression (with familiar “hiss” sound)
  • Chest tube insertion
    • Recognition of correct position in the 5th intercostal space
    • Blunt dissection through chest wall
  • Surgical skills
    • Cricothyrotomy
    • Tracheotomy
  • Torso manikin – easier to move and store than full body manikin
  • Spontaneous breathing controls – examine patient-ventilator interaction with a spontaneously breathing patient including coughs, apnea, and active exhalation.
  • Disease state modeling – quickly access patient models as a basis for your particular situation or create your own unique scenarios. You can always change patient parameters on-the-fly, when needed.
  • Reproducible patients – ensure consistent instruction and skills assessment.
  • The RespiSim Software enables you to provide structured, multiphase simulation scenarios that engage students in “clinical storytelling.”
  • Learners practice information gathering, making treatment decisions and psychomotor skills using interactions from your real ventilation equipment, the RespiPro Manikin, a simulated stethoscope for auscultation and the true-to-life patient monitor for the patient’s physiological information.
  • The instructor stays in control – amplify effects, throw students a curveball, or get the simulation back on track to meet learning objectives.
