Spontaneous breathing simulations are useful for testing, designing, and training on non-invasive and supportive modes of ventilation, as well as oxygenation.
The SBL is available as an independent device or an add-on to any current generation TTL or PneuView simulator from Michigan Instruments.
Features of the SBL
The SBL offers a variety of controls to provide accurate simulation of a breathing patient, including breath rate, tidal volume, and more.
The controls and ranges of measurements offered on the SBL are listed below:
- Breath Rate 2 to 30 per minute
- Tidal Volume 100 to 1,800 ml
- Inspiratory times .5 to 5.0 seconds
- Inspiratory Flow Pattern Square or Sine
- Inspiratory Flow Waveforms
Training and Testing
The industry for therapeutic devices and modalities that are made to function with a spontaneous breathing patient is growing. That’s why it’s important for Michigan Instruments to offer the SBL as a solution to simulate a wide variety of scenarios and breathing patterns.
This is the perfect device to use during education and training of students or established professionals. The SBL also facilitates troubleshooting and testing of devices meant to operate on spontaneous breathing patients.
Use the SBL to test your device’s ability to detect the start of a breath, to avoid breath-stacking, and more.
Research and Development
The SBL breathing is controlled by using our simple and intuitive, windows-based software program, and can be your tool for all kinds of research in various fields.
From studying the dispersion of aerosols and inhalers to assessing the responsiveness of new technologies, Michigan Instruments devices have been historically used for all types of research.
