We bought 5 of these for our Paramedic Science course and the students absolutely love them! To be able to visualise the ET tube on the app is really helpful. The pressure measurement on the teeth is also a fabulous feature.
A high fidelity, smart airway management simulator and intubation trainer with the unique addition of objective graphical feedback via a wireless tablet.
The soft, durable silicone construction of the airway gives realistic flexibility lacking in PVC plastic-based manikins.
The intuitive software measures and logs the various procedures associated with intubation and supraglottic airway placement. The user can then export their training record to PDF for their continuous professional development portfolio.
The Smart Airway Management Trainer is compatible with all common types of airway adjunct including endotracheal tube and i-gel.
This unique product empowers healthcare professionals to practise and then assess their airway management skills with objective feedback, without the need for an instructor to be present. Export results for review and debrief later on. A score is generated so clinicians can easily measure and improve their skills.
