Build competencies and prepare for real-life emergencies

From pre-hospital, on scene assessment and management to definitive care in a hospital, SimMan ALS can fulfil the unique training requirements of emergency healthcare providers.

SimMan ALS is designed to strengthen skills in:

    • Airway management
    • Breathing assessment
    • Palpation and auscultation
    • Fluid resuscitation
    • ECG interpretation
    • Defibrillation
    • Ultrasound assessment and diagnosis

SimMan ALS can be used for the complete training of the American Heart Association (AHA) and European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Course as well as a wide range of skills from basic assessment to critical care.


Making In situ Simulation Easier

Realistic, in situ simulation has been found to have a positive impact on learners' reactions, changes in safety attitudes, organisational performance and teamwork.

SimMan ALS has a mobile, durable, and self-contained design allowing training to take place in clinically realistic environments. Used with SimPad PLUS or a LLEAP PC, SimMan ALS can be operated wirelessly for “on the move” simulation.



Expand training opportunities according to your training needs

Pairing SimMan ALS with optional, complementary products can help make the simulation more clinically relevant to a wide range of healthcare disciplines. SimMan ALS allows you to integrate the latest technologies into your training programs when needed.

Prepared for ultrasound diagnostics training

SonoSim® technology has been integrated into the SimMan ALS chest/abdomen skin. This makes it easy to include diagnostic ultrasound featuring real ultrasound cases with pathological findings into full-scale simulations.

Laerdal-SonoSim Ultrasound Solution is only available for LLEAP PC operation. An additional purchase is required for SonoSim system and the patient cases and scenarios.

Prepared for enhanced defibrillation training

Pairing ShockLink with SimMan ALS enables the use of a live defibrillator with training pads. Training events such as time spent administering CPR, to placing the pads correctly and delivering a shock with minimal interruptions will automatically be captured in the SimPad PLUS or LLEAP data log for assessment and debrief.

An additional purchase of a ShockLink would be required.

Simulated patient monitoring

Graphical monitoring capabilities will enhance clinical realism and challenge critical thinking skills.

SimPad PLUS monitoring parameters are limited to Heart Rate, SpO2, Blood Pressure,
Respiratory Rate, Temperature, ECG, and CO2. LLEAP PC patient monitoring offers additional parameters as well as multi-media, labs and x-rays display capabilities.

Use your own clinical monitor with VitalsBridge

Bridge the gap between SimMan ALS and available clinical patient monitors.

VitalsBridge is only available during LLEAP PC operation. An additional purchase is required for the VitalsBridge unit and Services.

Operation and debriefing options

Operate using SimPad PLUS

SimPad PLUS provides instructors an intuitive interface to easily control and deliver highly effective simulation based training when and where you need it.

SimPad PLUS with the LLEAP for SimPad software license is required for operation in this configuration. SimMan ALS is not compatible with the classic SimPad remote.

Operate using a LLEAP Instructor PC

Operate SimMan ALS, as well as all other Laerdal PC-operated simulators, with LLEAP software. LLEAP brings simplicity to running simulation training and efficiencies to the management and development of scenarios.

The LLEAP Instructor PC will communicate with the built-in SimPad PLUS link box, allowing the simulator to respond to clinical interventions, instructor control or pre-programmed scenarios.

The LLEAP software license is required to use LLEAP with PC-operated simulators.

Integrated Debriefing

Capture, share and debrief training sessions using synchronised audio, video, and simulation information from one of Laerdal’s debriefing options:

  • SimView - an integrated debriefing solution giving you the ability to study simulation events more closely.
  • SimView Mobile - the perfect option for utilising SimView and SimMan ALS in situ.
  • Session Viewer - now enables audio and video capture from 1 HD USB web camera synchronised with the data log.
