The AmbuMan Advanced
The AmbuMan Advanced is an all-in-one solution for ALS training and can demonstrate the following:
- BVM ventilation.
- OPAs, i-gels and endotracheal intubation.
- Jaw thrust.
- Gastric insufflation.
- Chest compressions.
- Adjustable chest stiffness.
- Electrical pulse.
- Placement of defibrillation electrodes and defibrillation up to 360 joules.
- 12 lead ECG rhythms and transthoracic pacing.
- IV access (arm).
- IO access (leg).
Why is AmbuMan advanced so special?
The manikin centres around a wireless manikin management module (MMM). The MMM can be connected to from nearly any PC, tablet or smartphone – there are no licences, subscriptions or ongoing costs for this software. You don’t even have to install any software! Learners and trainers can access the software simultaneously for maximum performance visualisation.
The Journal of the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh stress the importance of simulation. The MMM allows for infinite training possibilities. As an instructor you can be as creative – or mean – as you like. This includes recording custom sounds, physiological parameters and 12 lead ECG rhythms.
Feedback is key to simulation and the MMM allows for both real time feedback and post-event debriefing. The management module features a virtual monitor, displaying heart rate, 12 lead ECG, blood pressure, EtCO2 and SpO2. Alternatively connecting your monitor directly to AmbuMan to assess 12 lead ECG data.
Debriefing provides an astounding level of data and times between events can be assessed such as the first “shake and shout” and the first defibrillation.
