About Simman 3Gsimman3gpage

SimMan 3G is a high-fidelity simulator, manufactured by Laerdal, and is the latest version of their adult simulator with the most advanced simulation technology. These lifelike manikins enable health care professionals and students of the health care professions the opportunity to learn and practice using a lifelike manikin and a realistic environment to provide care. The manikin has the ability to blink at you and to talk with you as you are providing care, which enhances the realism.


AIRWAY FEATURES: ability to head tilt chin lift, jaw thrust, oral and nasopharyngeal suctioning, bag mask ventilation, orotracheal and nasotracheal intubation, placement of combitube or LMA and other airways, endotracheal intubation, retrograde intubation, fiberoptic intubation, transtracheal jet ventilation, needle and surgical cricothyrotomy, variable lung compliance, airway resistance, right mainstem intubation, and stomach distention.

AIRWAY COMPLICATIONS: detects proper head placement, can’t intubate/ can ventilate, can’t intubate and can’t ventilate, tongue edema, pharyngeal swelling, laryngospasm, decreased cervical range of motion, and trismus.

BREATHING: simulated spontaneous breathing, bilateral chest rise and fall, normal and abnormal breath sounds, 5 anterior auscultation sites, 6 posterior auscultation sites, and oxygen saturation and waveform.

BREATHING COMPLICATIONS: cyanosis, ability to do bilateral needle thoracentesis, unilateral and bilateral chest movement, unilateral, bilateral and lobar breath sounds, and bilateral chest tube insertion.

CARDIAC: extensive ECG library, normal and abnormal heart sounds that can be auscultated in four anterior locations, ECG rhythm monitoring, ability to display 12 lead EKG’s, ability to defibrillate, cardiovert and pace.

CIRCULATION: BP can be measured manually by auscultation, the pulses are synchronized with the ECG, pulse strength varies with BP, and pulse palpation is detected.

VASCULAR ACCESS: IV access in the right arm only, and intraosseous access in both tibia and sternum.

CPR: CPR compressions generate palpable pulses, blood pressure wave form and ECG artifacts, realistic compression depth and resistance, detection of depth, release, and frequency of compressions and real time feedback on quality of CPR.

EYES: blinking (slow, normal, or fast modes) winks, eyes can be open, closed, and partially open, pupillary accommodation, synchrony and asynchrony, normal and sluggish speed of response.
