Simulab’s AirwayMan Provides for Airway Management Training | IMSH 2019 Video Demo
Rounding out our coverage of the IMSH 2019 vendor hall video demonstrations, here we take a look at Simulab‘s new AirwayMan Trainer announced at the show. Sales Director Stephen Hertz provided us a demonstration of the new Simulab new AirwayMan Trainer — which is priced at just $2,500 and built for healthcare simulation teams to help learners practice and train for complete airway management from nasal and oral intubation, to needle and surgical cricothyroidotomy. Watch the video below to learn more!
AirwayMan is Simulab’s new complete airway management training system. With the airway trainer, learners can AirwayMan offers low cost, replaceable soft tissue components for increased realism and extended product life. Every part of AirwayMan is carefully engineered to recreate the familiar movements, textures and delicate nuances of human anatomy. AirwayMan includes the same realistic cricothyroid structures found in TraumaMan—the most widely used cricothyroidotomy trainer in the world.
With this device your learners can train for complete airway management from nasal and oral intubation to needle and surgical cricothyroidotomy, while visually confirming key landmarks: functioning epiglottis, vallecula, and vocal cords. Practice patient positioning and assess strength needed for each procedure and proper technique for laryngoscope insertion — with ability to confirm intubation with auscultation and simulated chest excursion. Finally, your educators can also detect intubation errors including Right Mainstem Intubation!
AirwayMan Features & Learning Opportunities:
- Low cost, replaceable soft airway
- Easy set-up with soft tissue replacement system
- Integrated cricothyroidotomy
- Multi-layered, wrap-around replaceable neck skin with unsurpassed realism
- Movement, weight and landmarks closely mimic human anatomy
- Soft palate anatomy allows visual identification during intubation
- Palpable landmarks and life-like tissue to incise
- Visible confirmation when successful intubation is achieved
