Are You Successfully Running a Ventilator in Your Sims?
Hi Sim Champs!
Just got an email from a simulation user looking to operate a ventilator in their simulations. At the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas we used a refurbished ventilator to add props to the sceneray but it was never very successful for creating realistic chest rise and fall. We were able to disable the warning alarms to make it so that the scenario could play out but we would have liked a more realistic solution.
