Test & Calibrate Respiratory Equipment Using Lung Simulators from Michigan Instruments
For decades Michigan Instruments Lung Simulators have provided accurate and reliable results for those tasked with testing and calibrating mechanical ventilation devices. Our simulators are precise instruments that offer the range of lung compliance, airway resistance, and lung volumes required to properly test and calibrate devices over a range of realistic loads. Depending on your specific testing and calibrating applications, either the TTL (analog) or PneuView System (electronics and software) is suited to meet your needs.
Why Test and Calibrate Ventilators
All ventilators need to be tested and calibrated before they can be used on a patient to avoid adverse side effects. Ventilators also need to be re-tested and re-calibrated periodically to ensure they’re performing to established standards and manufacturer specifications. Testing ventilators with Michigan Instruments Lung Simulators also help medical staff understand what to expect from the ventilators and how each mode, in particular, will perform under real-world conditions.
