TestChest


TestChest, is an innovative full physiologic artificial lung that provides a breakthrough in mechanical ventilation training. It is the key to various questions viz.

TestChest is developed to simulate the human heart and respiratory system for teaching and training purposes. It can be used either as a stand-alone skill training station or integrated into a full-scale patient simulator.

Works with all ventilators

TestChest is a universal simulator that can be connected to all ventilators, for intubated patients as well as mask ventilation. All modalities are possible: pressure-volume manoeuvres, recruitment, PEEP adjustment, expiratory trigger sensitivity, pressure control, assist control, volume control, SIMV, PAV, adjustment, APRV, PSV, CPAP, PRVC, ASV, Intellivent and all other modalities.

Integrated vital signs monitor

Creates outcome

The scenario will be set as a patient, the result of the treatment provided by the trainee will be shown on airway pressures, lung volume, arterial oxygen saturation, end-tidal CO2, and more. The outcome is not created by the operator but by the interaction between trainee and TestChest, in real-time and reproducibly. New forms of interactive learning are possible: submit the same case to different students and let them compete on the outcome in a safe environment.

Intended Use

This highly accurate, versatile instrument represents the premier choice for respiratory care training. Due to its physiological modelling, TestChest can be set to represent any kind of clinical manifestation of pulmonary disease, even ones that are not know today as shown with Covid-19 patients. Product development and testing for ventilators, CPAP, aerosol drug delivery and other respiratory therapy devices can be easily done with TestChest.

TestChest LIFE

Control panel : The basic operator panel offers the selection of the pre- configured patients and the degree of breathing activity. Changes from ARDS to airway obstruction and all concomitant physiological changes are done at the click of a button.

Case creation : creation A complete case editor with goal setting and progression steps enables efficient scenario creation.

ISO80601-2-12 : Calibration facilities and measurement tools make TestChest ideal for tesing and quality control.
