SimMan

SimMan®

SimMan Essential, manufactured by Laerdal Corporation, is a wireless human patient simulator that represents an average-size adult patient. As a high fidelity manikin SimMan Essential can teach core skills in airway, breathing, cardiac, and circulation management. He comes equipped with a patient monitor that displays vitals, labs, and radiology.

As a high fidelity manikin SimMan Essential can help teach core skills in airway, breathing, cardiac, and circulation management.

Among the features of SimMan are:

  • Integrated speakers allowing for vocalization and sound effects for patient interaction.  
  • Realistic heart, lung, and bowel sounds
  • Dynamically adjustable airway and pulmonary mechanics
  • Carotid, femoral, brachial, and radial pulses provide appropriate absent, weak, or normal pulses matching systolic pressures
  • Chest compression / CPR-compatible and detection-enabled
  • A pulse oximeter finger probe allowing the SpO2 feedback once the probe is placed on the simulator's finger
  • An articulated Blood Pressure Arm and articulated Multi-Venous IV Training Arm with simulated blood concentrate and IV set-up, providing the ability to obtain realistic flashback upon venous entry, to practice fluid infusion, and to push medications
  • Allows invasive interventions such as needle decompression, tube thoracostomy and surgical cricothyroidotomy
  • Ability to administer intramuscular and subcutaneous injections in the deltoid, gluteal and thigh areas
  • The ability to simulate urinary catheterization in a male and a female patient
