SAM 3G® — Student Auscultation Manikin


Product: 718-8802 Category:

The auscultation training manikin SAM 3G® was developed to be simple and easy to operate. Out of the box, SAM 3G® can be connected and set to teach the desired cardiac, lung, bowel or bruit sounds. Cardionics has designed SAM 3G® to create a straightforward yet memorable auscultation training experience, while completely eliminating the frustration of incorporating complicated educational tools in the classroom. Apart from teaching auscultation skills to the entire class, students can also practice their hands-on skills in self-study with SAM 3G® torso without supervision.


With the training manikin SAM 3G®, Cardionics has taken student engagement in auscultation education to the next level. The popular SAM 3G® has palpable pulse and comes with 24 case videos, 12 echocardiogram videos and EKG waveforms of every heart sound. Additionally it is available in 7 languages: English, French, German, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Combined with the included Lesson Guide and phonocardiograms for each sound or condition, students will have access to everything they need to master their auscultation skills – including the recognition of a COVID-19 lung sound.

SAM 3G® contains over 100 normal and abnormal cardiac, respiratory, bowel and bruit sounds of the highest and clearest quality. It also includes access to the Real Sounds Library, a collection of 24 real heart and lung sounds recorded from live patients. Using these valuable tools allows educators to create libraries that fit specific lectures and programs. And with built-in speakers, students can auscultate using their own stethoscope receiving crystal clear sounds. With SAM 3G®, there is no noise disturbance from interior mechanics.

Weighing just over 20 pounds, SAM 3G® is portable and an easy to carry. Instructors can bring SAM 3G® to the skills lab, classroom or auditorium — ensuring students spend adequate time practicing their auscultation skills. Teachers can also play videos of simulated case studies for students to grasp healthcare professional-to-patient interaction techniques.
