Adult Lung Simulators: Single Vs Dual Adult
Lung Simulators from Michigan Instruments are able to realistically simulate healthy and diseased lung conditions. Providing controlled and accurate simulations of adult patients, they aid in the training of medical professionals, testing of products for quality assurance, and in the research and development of new medical innovations.
Providing accurate simulations of a “typical” adult patients, these devices aid in the training of medical professionals, testing of products for quality assurance, and in the research and development of new medical innovations.
But, did you know we carry two different adult simulation devices?
Single Adult Lung Simulator
Our Single Adult TTL® or PneuView® Lung Simulator provides a wide range of simulations in a smaller, single-lung package. With a full range of lung compliance and airway resistance settings, the small size and weight of the device simplifies transport and takes up less bench or table space.
Best Applications for the Single Adult Test Lung Simulator
Single lung simulators are ideal for those focused on demonstration and evaluation of devices where a dual adult lung simulation is not required.
With the Single Adult TTL or PneuView Simulators, you may assess the performance of respiratory therapy technologies in a safe and repeatable way with advanced data collection metrics and analysis capabilities.
For example, biomedical engineers use test lungs and simulators for preventative maintenance testing. Production and quality control engineers use test lungs to calibrate and assure machine performance, and service personnel use our devices to troubleshoot mechanical ventilator systems.
You can add an Adult Head Simulation Module for non-invasive ventilation and support applications. Also, all of our simulators come with access ports for additional monitoring or introduction of physiologic/therapeutic gases
Dual Adult Lung Simulator
Our Dual Adult TTL® and PneuView® Lung Simulators provide a more fully-to-scale simulation of adult lung mechanics. The total lung capacity replicates that of a typical adult patient. Each lung can be independently adjusted for compliance and airway resistance, allowing the simulation of bilateral or unilateral lung disease, and making a comparison of the lungs (visual and otherwise) easy.
When paired with our Breath Simulation Module (BSM) the Dual Adult TTL can be used to create a spontaneously breathing lung model, and the addition of the Adult Head Simulation Module (HSM-A) further expands the applications for this system.
Best Applications for Dual Adult Lung Simulator
While this device can also be used for testing and to evaluate respiratory devices, it really stands out in the classroom. The dual adult model helps educators develop valuable skills in their students through hands-on, visual experiences. By realistically simulating various patients, conditions, and even not-so-common scenarios, students gain valuable insights into ventilator management and patient care in a safe and controlled environment.
Both the Single and Dual models are available in the TTL or PneuView configuration (with or without electronics and PneuView software). Both can aid in the design, engineering and manufacturing of respiratory devices, making them easier and more effective to use.
The flexibility inherent in both the Single Adult or Dual Adult lung simulation devices allows users to replicate hundreds of healthy and diseased lung conditions while providing accurate measurements and data that inform testing, research, and training.
No matter which one you choose, our Lung Simulators are proven to be versatile, reliable, and durable.
