Breath Simulation Module

The Michigan Instruments’ Breath Simulation Module is a compact precision device designed to transform the dual adult Training and Test Lung into a spontaneously breathing system.

While in this mode, the PneuView system can analyze a simulated patient breath at preset compliances and resistances as well as investigate the characteristics of assisted ventilation. No other apparatus allows for simulated breaths at such a controllable level.


Use of a Breathing Simulator allows for:

  • A physical and digital display of spontaneous breaths, useful in the classroom and in ventilator calibration.
  • Accurate control of breath rate, tidal volume and inspiratory time.
  • Easy, calibrated ventilation of testing equipment via line-air.
  • Simple setup. With a Breath Simulation Module, a spontaneously breathing system can be set up in less than two minutes.

Breath Rate:   1-60 Breaths Per Minute
Inspiratory Time:    User selectable .50, 1.0, 1.5, & 2.0 seconds (+/- 0.15 sec)
Breath Volume: 50 - 2000 mL
Manual Mode: Manual trigger provided for individual breaths




NOTE:  The BSM may be used on an Adult/Infant TTL Models 1601 or 5601i but its use is limited.  It can be used to create a spontaneously breathing infant lung only and no PneuView® software interface is available.
