    • Trismus, tongue edema, pharyngeal obstruction and laryngospasm
    • Decreased cervical range of motion
    • Decreased lung resistance
    • Pneumothorax decompression at 3 sites and chest tube insertion
    • Stomach decompression
  • Circulatory Skills and IV Drug Administration
    • IV training arm with replaceable skin and veins
    • Sites for subcutaneous and intramuscular injections
  • Pulses
    • Carotid, femoral, brachial, radial, dorsalispedis and posterior tibialis pulses
    • Pulses synchronized with ECG or compressions
    • Pulse strength dependent on BP selected and pulse sites
  • Cardiac Functions
    • Extensive ECG library with rate from 20-200
    • Compression artifacts on ECG during CPR
    • Defibrillation/Cardiac monitoring - 3 lead (4 connectors) ECG monitoring or via the defib paddles
    • External Pacing – with variable pacing threshold
  • CPR
    • ABC check
    • Ventilation
    • Chest compression
    • ECG and heart rate can be displayed on the simulated monitor
  • Blood Pressure
    • Can be taken automatically, auscultated or palpated
    • Blood pressure arm with Korotkoff sounds synchronized with pulse for auscultation and palpation
    • Easily varied BP: Systolic and diastolic can be set independently
  • Genitalia for Urinary Catheterization
    • Male or female genitalia can be added to the simulator for urinary catheterization procedures
  • Sounds
    • Simulator “speaking” through instructor microphone
    • Heart sounds synchronized with ECG
    • Independent left and right lung sounds
    • Bowel sounds
    • Vocal sounds, pre- or user-programmed
    • Independent volume adjustment
