Practice Intubating

Learning the Basics. This manikin provides a high fidelity airway for practicing establishing an advanced airway during CPR. It requires head tilt-chin lift and has visible vocal cords. It will provide feedback on the intubation process itself and it is designed to provide feedback when intubating during ongoing Chest compressions. This manikin has a unique physical build so that the interaction of the chest compressions and the ventilations can be felt when practicing and there is real time feedback on the interaction. It also provides for excellent BLS training (chest compressions, ventilations and CPR). The software is plug and play with free updates, no user fees and no requirement to register. Internet is not required and there are no batteries. SmartMan features state of the art feedback with visual color feedback for chest depth, rate and recoil of the chest, as well as too deep and hitting the bottom. Ventilations use the same easy to understand colors for volume, rate and interval. You always receive a score on your performance and Feedback can be turned on and off with the click of a single button. Select which product you wish by choosing the feature list that is most appropriate.

High Fidelity Airway
This maniking is sutiable for practicing intubation with an ET Tube and most other para laryngeal devices. It requires a correct head titl-chin lift, proper sighting of the landmarks in order to locate the correct location to insert the tube.

Real Time Ventimeter
The high degree of accuracy of SmartMan means that we can measure and display the movement of the air into the lungs as it occurs. It will be true to the volume and rate of flow.

Landmarks / Timing

SmartMan proivdes the correct landmarks within the larynx to practice use of the laryngoscopy and placing the ET Tube. More difficult to master is to perform this quickly and to establish thhe airway on te first attempt. SmartMan will give you feedback on the timing and when the cuff is holding air.

Physical & Digital Feedback

This is a high fidelity airway which can take most laryngeal and para-laryngeal devices. It is suitale for practicing how to place the ET Tube. Besides the physical landmarks, you receive full digital feedback on the time it takes you, whether the cuff is holding air, and it will proivde you with an overall score on the whole procedure.


Practice Intubating With Compressions Ongoing

Advanced Intubating Practice
During an emergency response to a cardiac arrest, no flow time to the brain is crucial to the long term outcome of the patient. The current guidelines recommend that responders establish an advanced airway which chest compressions continue to circulate blood while another responder attempts to establish an advanced airway.

Unique SmartMan Air Flow Interaction with Movememnt of Thorax
When performing the most difficult technical skill of intubating as chest compressions are ongoing, this feature is very important. Not only does the larynx move with the compressiion, but also the downward movememnt of the chest will expell air from the lungs. this means that while inserting the ET Tube, you must also learn to cope with the moving air and deflection of the tissue.

Time Critical

In response to a cardiac arrest, it is important to circulate blood as much of the time as possible. This means that if possible, you should establish the advanced airway as the chest is being compressed. This introduces several new difficulties and they need to be practiced. SmartMan is designed for this.

Air Moving Out

There are two important factors to deal with when chest compressions are ongoing. The first is the gneral movement of the body as the chest is compressed and released. The second is that on the downward movement of the chest, air rushes out of the patient. SmartMan provides this realistic training.
