Improve core skills in emergency care

SimMan Essential

SimMan Essential offers learners a risk-free way to build team performance and enhance individual skills in airway, breathing, cardiac and circulation management.

A safe and risk-free learning environment

Bringing together multi-disciplinary healthcare professionals to rehearse both common clinical scenarios and emergency critical incidents is a significant part of simulation practice. Skills repetition in simulated practice reduces the potential for error and enhances skills performance when it really matters.  SimMan Essential injects realism into scenario-based training to further enhance and contextualize learning objectives in preparation for real patient encounters in a safe and risk-free environment.

Full control over all patient parameters

Created with you in mind, our solutions balance state-of-the-art technology with simple set-up and easy-to-run scenario programs. SimMan Essential can be used alone or together with more advanced upgrade options to incorporate training with ultrasound, ventilation management, clinical patient monitors and video debriefing systems.

You have complete control over the simulation training using our LLEAP software, whether you choose to operate SimMan Essential on the fly or use pre-programmed scenarios. Every aspect of your learner's simulation experience is completely integrated and available at the touch of a button. You can set the physical parameters, start trends, and log actions. 

Take your simulation training further

Transform SimMan Essential into an advanced turn-key learning solution and enhance simulations beyond training in core competencies.

Together with experts in their field, we created a range of completely integrated upgrade options that can be combined with different SimMan patient simulators to further enhance your simulation.

Utilize the definitive learning management solution with integrated debriefing and assessment tools.

SimCapture

Use your own clinical patient monitor during simulation training for increased realism.

VitalsBridge

Include diagnostic ultrasound featuring real ultrasound cases with pathological findings into full-scale simulations.

Laerdal-SonoSim Ultrasound Solution

ASL 5000 Lung Solution

Worry-free simulation

Always stay operational and on top of the latest simulation knowledge through support of the extensive Laerdal technical and educational service portfolio.

A commitment to helping save lives

Laerdal is dedicated to helping you meet your educational goals

From simulators and scenarios to installation and training,  our products and services are designed to help you achieve the optimal training environment.

At Laerdal, we are committed to helping save lives. That is why simulation is a crucial component of our healthcare education portfolio. Our flagship SimMan Simulators build upon decades of experience in the field of medical simulation.

Running simulation with EMS or Military teams?

For specialist training with military and EMS teams, we recommend SimMan Essential Bleeding which incorporates an internal bleeding system. This offers unique benefits for field-based trauma training.

SimMan Essential is robust and reliable so it will withstand the rigor of extensive use in field-based simulations.
