RespiSim Software Installer (version 4.1)

  • DISCLAIMER:  Upgrading to RespiSim Software version 4.1 will provide access to new media. All media that was provided in version 4.0 of the patient monitor will no longer be available. Any scenario built with version 4.0 media will no longer display in your scenario. We suggest selecting new media from version 4.1 of the patient monitor. If losing that media is going to cause your program concern, we suggest remaining at version 4.0 until you are able to secure new media to replace version 4.0 media. 
  • Please note: Windows 10 is required.
  • Current ASL 5000/ RespiSim users:  A purchased license is required to connect your ASL 5000 with the RespiSim Software. Please contact support@ingmarmed.com to inquire about our 60-day free trial as well as purchasing a permanent license.
  • Current RespiSim Software 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.

Release Notes (version 4.1)

What’s New

  • Redesigned Patient Monitor application:
    • Patient monitor application which can run on Windows or Android
    • Updated patient media that is more respiratory-focused
    • 26 lung model scenarios for ease of use when simulating a single disease state to simulate how that type of patient looks on different ventilator settings. These scenarios can be used with and without the Virtual Ventilator.
  • New Virtual Ventilator application (subscription required*):
    • Ability to harness the power of the ASL 5000 in a virtual environment
    • Ability to demonstrate patient ventilator interactions without the use of ventilator hardware
      • Pressure, Volume, and flow real time graphics for waveform analysis
      • Real time live data output displayed on the user interface
    • Ability to train on ventilator concepts in a non-traditional learning environment
    • Ability to train on the foundational modes of ventilation
      • AC in Volume, AC in Pressure and CPAP

*Access to Virtual Ventilator requires active RespiSim eLearning subscription. Please contact sales@ingmarmed.com for more information.

What’s improved/enhanced from prior version (version 4.0.20802.0)?

  • More stable connection between RespiSim software and Patient Monitor application

Known bugs to be addressed in future releases:

  • Customers may still experience latency, freezing or crashing while using Incoming Transition Time or Hold Time along with a set Default Connection between Patient Conditions in a scenario. If a user stops and restarts a scenario or makes an on-the-fly change during an Incoming Transition Time or Hold Time, it will cause the software to create an error and eventually freeze. If this occurs, shut down the software and wait up to 1 minute for the server to reset before restarting the software. Any changes made to a scenario during this time will not be saved. We suggest users do not use Incoming Transition Time or Hold Time in scenarios until this bug is resolved.
  • Media within IngMar provided scenarios may not display properly in some cases
  • When using the Virtual Ventilator, the A, C, and S do not correlate to an Assisted, Controlled, or Spontaneous breath delivered by the ventilator.
  • When using the Virtual Ventilator with an apneic patient (MP 0 in lung model), you will still see a patient trigger in the amount of the underlying respiratory rate set on the lung model. We are working on having this fixed in the next patch update.
  • When the patient is apneic, the underlying respiratory rate of the lung model will be shown on the patient monitor.
  • When using the Virtual Ventilator, it is possible to set a PIP higher than a PEEP value.
  • When using CPAP, the expiratory flow waveform doesn’t look correct for a spontaneously breathing patient
  • When using the Virtual Ventilator, the PIP measured value is being measured at the wrong part of the pressure waveform. The user is still able to analyze PIP on the waveform, but dysynchronies may cause erroneous PIP values.
  • The Pulseless Ventricular Tachycardia 1 ECG waveform thumbnail is not the same image that displays on the patient monitor, this will not affect the learner during the simulation as the correct waveform is populated on the patient monitor
  • Certain ultrasounds may not display in RespiSim or on the patient monitor. We suggest avoiding those ultrasounds until we can resolve that issue with a patch update
  • Data from the virtual ventilator cannot be saved in the debrief environment
  • Data feedback from the virtual ventilator does not display in RespiSim as live data for the instructor to view, RespiSim live data will only show the mechanics of the patient without the ventilator
  • When making changes “on the fly” in RespiSim, certain ECG images will prevent manipulation of the heart rate. To resolve this issue, navigate to the scenario environment, add a heart rate under the vitals section, select “apply condition” and navigate back to the RespiSim home screen. You will then be able to make changes to your HR “on the fly” without issues.

Coming Soon

  • Improvements to overall system stability and performance
