There are a number of lung conditions that physicians and nurses encounter during their daily lives. Asthmatic attacks and simple upper respiratory infections form the opposite ends of the spectrum of breath sounds. Medical and nursing students must learn this fundamental skill - the art of auscultation or making an informed diagnosis by listening to body sounds. Their ability to differentiate between minor and serious conditions has been made easier by teaching simulators and software offered through Cardionics.
The inventory of stethoscopes, auscultation simulators, manikins and software offered by Cardionics demonstrates breath sounds to students at all levels. Cardionics has leaped past the competition with its digital breath sound simulator, the PneumoSim - an ideal simulator for instructors looking for an effective tool for their students.
Breath Sounds Simulator
The PneumoSim Digital Breath Sound Simulator features a unique combination of audio and visual tools to help every student learn and memorize breath sounds. This simulator can produce any breath sound the body produces. Within the PneumoSim is a "Create" feature allowing the instructor to modify any existing breath sound to the condition under study.Respiration rate, I:E ratio, duration of the pause at the end inspiration or expiration can be altered.
Adventitious sounds can be placed into any 1/3 of either the inspiratory or expiratory cycyle or both.
Students can hear the effects of asthma, pneumonia and bronchial infection to help them master the art of pulmonary auscultation.
Learning to diagnose breath sounds has become far easier with the PneumoSim Digital Breath Sound Simulator.
