A virtual ventilation management training solution

In cooperation with Laerdal Medical

TruCorp are pleased to announce Laerdal Medical as the exclusive partner for this innovative and cost-effective solution for ventilation management training.

With TruVent, users with limited experience can gain the basic skills needed to operate a ventilator with ease, or more complex scenarios can be run for experienced clinicians. The instructor can adjust underlying patient characteristics, creating a clinically accurate respiratory engine that will display appropriate pressure, flow and volume curves in real time.

Deliver ventilation training in a classroom environment, or virtually using the Interactive Remote Learning integration.

Product Details

App Features & Benefits

  • Includes commonly used mechanical ventilation modes (Assist Control, SIMV, PC, VC, CMV) & advanced ventilation modes.
  • Student can take control of ventilator settings to achieve ventilation targets during simulation. As student adjusts ventilation parameters/strategy, respiratory engine adjusts accordingly.
  • “Build a Breath” feature allows student to create bespoke ventilation strategies, enhancing teaching of mechanical ventilation principles.
  • Instructor can choose & activate an anaesthesia complication which automatically adjusts relevant physiological & ventilation parameters (tension pneumothorax, anaphylaxis, bronchospasm, endotracheal tube disconnect, pulmonary embolism, malignant hyperpyrexia, local anaesthesia toxicity, cardiac arrest and many more…)
  • Adjust age/height weight of simulated patient

Medical Simulation Training

  • Lung volume (calculated from height, gender, age)
  • Dynamic lung compliance curves ranging from normal lungs to mild/moderate/severe disease states (ARDS/asthma/fibrotic etc)
  • Inspiratory & expiratory resistance to airflow
  • Intrinsic patient respiratory effort (rate, effort, I:E ratio, forced exhalation or paralysed)
  • Triggering (adjustable flow & pressure sensitivity), limit, cycling, PEEP variables
  • Variable flow patterns
  • Resp rate, tidal volume, I:E ratio, PEEP
  • Appropriate & adjustable ventilator monitoring/alarms
  • Monitoring of inhaled & end tidal gas composition
  • Calculation of minimum alveolar concentration from combined gas composition analysis to monitor depth of anaesthesia
  • Resistance and compliance can be different for each lung, achieving complex ventilation challenges

Ideal for:

  • Undergraduate & post-graduate medical trainees
  • Elective & emergency anaesthesia training
  • Emergency medicine, anaesthesia & intensive care clinicians
  • Intensive care nursing training programs
  • Critical care teams
  • Transfer & retrieval of critically ill teams
  • Advanced pre-hospital EMS providers (HEMS, critical care paramedics)
  • Nurse anaesthesia training programs
  • Respiratory therapist training programs

In-class or remote training

With this app-based solution, instructors can provide 1:1 interactive training or train multiple learners at the same time, either in a class setting or remotely from different locations across the globe. Devices can connect via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth for in-class training, or through Wi-Fi for a remote learning session. When the devices are paired, all updates are displayed in real time.

TruVent can be used alongside TruCorp AirSim® X intubation manikins or trauma training products to integrate clinical decision-making, crew resource management and mechanical ventilation training.

Teach ventilation quickly and easily

Building clinical competence and confidence to manage a ventilator is a challenge. The high risk associated with mechanical ventilation requires both basic skills training and training for complex respiratory scenarios. With TruVent, instructors can adjust underlying patient characteristics, creating clinically accurate respiratory simulations that will display appropriate pressure, flow, and volume curves in real time.

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need for mechanical ventilation management training. Globally, there is not only a shortage of ventilators, but also a shortage of healthcare personnel who are trained to use them. As the healthcare workforce has been asked to join the frontlines in ICUs and critical care facilities, there is an urgent need to get staff up to speed quickly.

In response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, many medical education and simulation groups are developing and recommending standard airway management practices specific to the COVID-19 patient group.

TruVent and TruMonitor (a patient monitor simulator) are great virtual options for true-to-life medical training outside a classroom setting.

TruVent is a convenient, cost-effective solution for:
