LungSim Ventilator Simulator
LungSim is a unique mechanical ventilator training simulator that operates as a standalone PC application. Additionally, it enables the user to interface bi-directionally with a Gaumard human patient simulator. The Gaumard UNI software connects wirelessly to LungSim allowing the manikin simulator to change parameters on the ventilator and vice versa.
This model-driven software, with the stand-alone mode, permits the user to train himself on the respiratory mechanisms. Also, thanks to the simulation mode, create advanced simulation scenarios on several cases of pulmonary diseases or acute respiratory failures while being wirelessly linked to a patient simulator.
Highly scalable, remote ventilator training
LungSim incorporates vital signs alteration, ventilatory parameters and multiple other features. The trainee can develop the ability to interpret ventilator data, formulate diagnoses and adapt treatments to the pathological patient’s case. Furthermore, it allows instructors to simulate several patient conditions. For example chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases or severe respiratory distress syndromes, like those caused by COVID-19 (Coronavirus) by simply changing patient parameters and ventilator values.
LungSim utilises a realistic learner interface with integrated controls that simulate a real ventilator. Additionally, the instructor can display student’s interface on PCs, tablets, smartphones connected via a wireless network, supporting the use of LungSim during advanced simulation scenarios.
The trainee interface displays alarm messages, patient data, waveforms (Pressure, Volume, Flow, Volume-Pressure loop, Flow-Pressure loop, Flow-Volume loop and others). Parameters (such as Peak and Mean Pressures, Expiratory Minute Volume, Respiratory Rate, Inspiration Time, etc.). Also ventilation setting controls (like PEEP, Tidal Volume, Pressure Level over PEEP, I:E ratio, etc.). It achieves ventilation modalities, both controlled (Volume Control, Pressure Control) and assisted (Pressure Support, SIMV, BIBAP, EDI), and includes multiple built-in layouts (three-/four-/five-traces layouts and loops layout).
The instructor can change the value of parameters such as Lung Compliance, Thorax Compliance, Resistance and Respiratory Muscle Effort. This affects the virtual patient or manikin’s Respiratory Rate, Inspiration Time, Oxygen saturation, End-Tidal CO2 and Arterial Pressure of a high-fidelity simulator.
