ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator

ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator

Create almost any breath - without the patient!


ASL 5000 Flyer - (812kb)


The ASL 5000™ is the world’s most sophisticated breathing simulator, and capable of simulating the full range of patients  – neonatal to adult. The ASL 5000 is able to breathe spontaneously even while being ventilated and can be used with any ventilator (and any ventilator mode). The ASL 5000 can help you save time, accelerate development and gain better control of testing protocols.


Intended Use


This highly accurate, versatile instrument represents the premier choice for product development and testing for ventilators, CPAP, aerosol drug delivery and other respiratory therapy devices. Review this list of research studies using the ASL 5000 to learn about how others are using the ASL 5000.


Are You an Educator?

·       If you intend to use the ASL 5000 for training, please see our offerings with software designed for educators: the RespiSim System or the ASL 5000 Lung Solution for the SimMan Platform.  If you already own an ASL 5000, check out our upgrade options.

Request Information

Use the ASL 5000 to:


  • Perform long term testing on all ventilator modes with virtually any patient type
  • Develop adaptive algorithms on ventilators
  • Simulate patient breathing associated with sleep apnea for development of CPAP devices
  • Evaluate aerosol drug delivery devices using realistic high-flow inhalation
  • Compare ventilators or ventilator modes (e.g. pressure support mode) on the same reproducible patient
  • Create repeatable breath patterns at a high level of accuracy for respiratory device product development with the smart pump
























Automated Control


Data Analysis

  • 100+ parameters for detailed analysis of entire patient breath cycle
  • Export all data including waveforms and breath parameters for deeper statistical analysis
  • 512 Hz sampling rate provides very granular feedback across a wide range of breath rates



  • Highly accurate throughout the entire range of neonatal to adult tidal volumes and breath rates
  • Calibrated system traceable to NIST standards (sample calibration certificate)
  • Flow calculated from piston position eliminates the uncertainties of external flow meters.

ASL5000 Lung Solution

Advanced Ventilator Management Training for SimMan 3G, SimMan 3G Trauma, SimMan Essential and SimMan Essential Bleeding.

SimMan 3G

SimMan 3G is an advanced patient simulator that can display neurological symptoms as well as physiological. It is simple to operate and features innovative technology such as automatic drug recognition.

SimMan Essential

A realistic, full-body adult, wireless patient simulator, SimMan Essential offers comprehensive clinical functionality to teach the core skills of airway, breathing, cardiac and circulation management. 

SimMan 3G Trauma

SimMan 3G Trauma has been designed to train military and civilian emergency medical personnel in trauma situations, such as hemorrhage control. The durable configuration provides you with the flexibility to perform simulation based education in the environment of your choice, from the classroom to the battlefield.

ASL 5000 Smart Pump

Create repeatable breath patterns at a high level of accuracy with the ASL 5000™ Breathing Simulator’s SmartPump mode. The SmartPump mode is a waveform generator that controls flow or volume.

Throughout the history of medicine, clinical learning has been based on imitating the actions of others. Medical students are expected to learn complex medical tasks by watching other clinicians perform that task. This is known as the “see one, do one” approach, or the apprenticeship model. Certainly, the “see one, do one” approach to learning will continue to have its place. In many cases, however, experts within healthcare see simulation as an alternative, or at least a stepping-stone, between classroom learning and clinical practice. This means change.
