The Breath Simulation Module (BSM) is a compact, precision device designed to transform the Dual Adult TTL into a spontaneous breathing system. The BSM is used to ventilate one of the adult lung models, using it to lift the other adult lung by way of a Lung Coupling Clip. That lifted lung behaves like a spontaneous breathing patient. The breath rate, volume, and inspiratory flowrates can be varied (as specified below) to produce a wide range of spontaneous breathing simulations.Spontaneous breathing simulations are especially useful for designing, demonstrating, testing and providing training on non-invasive and supportive modes of ventilation and oxygenation.NOTE: The BSM may be used on the Adult/Infant TTL Models but its use is limited. It can be used to simulate a spontaneously breathing infant lung only. Also, measurements made by PneuView software while in this mode are not corrected for patient “effort” and subject to significant error. Request a Quote

Features & Benefits of Michigan Lung
- The Breath Simulation Module has a physical and digital display of spontaneous breaths that is useful both in the classroom and for 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.
