RespiSim Software 4.0 Installer (version 4.0.20428.1)
- Please note: Windows 10 is required.
- Current ASL 5000/ RespiSim users: A purchased license is required to connect your ASL 5000 with the RespiSim 4.0 Software. Please contact email@example.com to inquire about our 60-day free trial as well as purchasing a permanent license.
- Current RespiSim Software 4.0 users: Please exit the RespiSim Software and reboot your system before upgrading to the latest version.
- Before running the RespiSim installer, please download and install any available Windows updates, and restart your computer.
- Administrator access is required to install and to operate. Windows User Account Control must be enabled in the User Account control panel. A setting of “Never Notify” will disable User Account Control access, and is therefore incompatible with RespiSim software. Please ask an Administrator to re-enable User Account Control if you are not seeing the User Account Control prompt upon installing or launching RespiSim.
- For assistance, please contact Client Success at firstname.lastname@example.org or (412) 441-8228, Option 1.

Release Notes (version 4.0.20428.1)
What’s improved/enhanced from prior version (4.0.10722)?
Updates to breath detection parameters to allow more accurate detection of small breaths on neonatal models
Erroneous multiple breaths are no longer detected
Improved synching of displayed waveforms in the UI
Live waveform data is now filtered to remove sporadic spikes due to noise
Added additional error handling and logging around ASL 5000 connection logic
Improved connectivity of RespiScope devices to now support multiple connection attempts per session
Updated RespiScope playlist format for newer RespiScope firmware versions
Fixed issues related to RespiScope data export and import
Upgraded to .NET 5 from .NET Core 3.1 for added stability and future-proofing
Known bugs to be addressed in the next release:
- When running RespiSim Software with a non-intubated RespiPro Manikin, some adult lung models cause severe oscillations (generally lung models with low airway resistance). This issue has been documented with the following lung models: Normal High Effort (Adult) and Emphysema (Adult). These lung models will oscillate enough to impact performance. Please note there is some minor waveform oscillation in the software before a breath is triggered with some lung models, but this oscillation does not hinder performance.
When running RespiSim Software with an intubated RespiPro Manikin, some adult lung models in an apneic state will cause the RespiSim Software Live Data to fluctuate or read incorrectly. The waveforms in the RespiSim Software display correctly and the ventilator performance is not impacted. This error is also dependent on ventilator settings. We have noted that using settings with higher pressures seems to improve the Live Data readings.
When running RespiSim Software with a spontaneously breathing manikin, the Live Data PIP reading will generally be lower than what is being delivered by the ventilator.
- Note that the tubing connecting the ASL 5000 to the RespiPro Manikin should not be shortened or exchanged for different tubing.
- Improved connectivity with the Patient Monitor
- Ability to use a shortned tubing set-up from the ASL 5000 to the RespiPro Manikin
