Simulator Capability
  • Trainee to perform bag valve mask ventilation.
  • Trainee to perform tracheal intubation properly or improperly.
  • Simulator to demonstrate chest rise with spontaneous ventilation or positive pressure ventilation.
  • Simulator to demonstrate breath sounds.
  • Simulator to demonstrate palpable pulses in left brachial, radial, and bilateral femoral artery locations.
  • Simulator to exhale CO2 from trachea with CO2 tank.a
Monitor Capability
  • To demonstrate pulse oximetry saturation number and waveform.
  • To demonstrate heart rate and electrocardiography waveform.
  • To demonstrate respiratory rate.
Simulator Measurement/Record Capability
  • To measure cervical spine extension angle at every second.
  • To detect appropriate ventilation after intubation.
  • To record a simulation log with vital sign changes, with key actions recorded by an investigator during simulation.
