A virtual ventilation management training solution

Learn the basics of mechanical ventilation. 

No ventilator, no simulator required. All you need is two tablets. 

Current simulation training solutions for ventilation management require access to an actual ventilator. TruVent is an innovative virtual simulation app to teach ventilation management safely without the need for a ventilator or a simulator. With TruVent, learners with limited experience can gain the basic skills needed to operate a ventilator with ease.

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.

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.

TruVent is a perfect solution for

  • 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 paralyzed)
  •  Triggering (adjustable flow & pressure sensitivity), limit, cycling, PEEP variables
  •  Variable flow patterns
  • Respiratory 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 anesthesia
