SimMan 3G PLUS

Immersive training for emergency care medicine

Transforming healthcare education

Advancing the world’s most trusted patient simulator

Built on decades of expertise, SimMan 3G PLUS offers a fully immersive experience setting the standard in patient care simulation.

Designed to simulate complex medical cases that help prepare learners for real-world situations, SimMan 3G PLUS features interchangeable headskins to reflect a range of simulated patients, full articulation for realistic patient handling, and technology to integrate real clinical devices for heightened realism.

Training individually or in a team, learners can practice critical skills such as decision-making and team communication to deliver high-quality patient care. SimMan 3G PLUS ensures that when it’s real, they'll be ready.


New Features for SimMan 3G PLUS


Interchangeable headskins
Add a new level of fidelity to your simulation training and seamlessly transition between adult male, adult female, or aged male/female patients for more realistic patient encounters.


Realistic articulation 
Realistic patient handling and added bilateral features offer the capability to train ALS and ACLS scenarios. 


Non-invasive blood pressure
Use a standard clinical blood pressure monitor for accurate BP measurement.   


Pulse oximetry 
Measure oxygen saturation levels with the same pulse oximeter used on a real patient.  


Humeral IO and Deltoid IM 
Deliver intramuscular or intraosseous medications with real devices and fluids. 


Flexible defibrillation options allow your learners to train with a live defibrillator using LiveShock or training pads using ShockLink. 


Trauma Care
Train for the rapid identification and effective management of bleeding control. The amputated trauma leg responds to techniques performed during trauma life support training.

  • Critical Care
  • Trauma Care
  • Behavioral Health Care
  • Pharmacology

High-Fidelity Simulation

SimMan 3G PLUS is one of the most advanced emergency care patient simulators designed for high-fidelity simulated scenarios. All aspects of medical training can be practiced simultaneously and gradient levels of difficulty can be applied to each scenario to build learner competence. Simulation provides the opportunity to train staff without risk to patients. The ability to frequently practice and manage complex medical scenarios helps to prevent medical errors, while detailed feedback promotes discussion and re-enforces the learning process.

Acute Care

Simulate a wide range of medical emergencies, including those encountered in pre-hospital and in-hospital settings such as airway obstruction, stroke, and cardiac arrest. Students and emergency medical professionals can practice their skills in a realistic and controlled environment, allowing them to train to respond quickly to different scenarios and develop the confidence and competence to perform their duties in real-life situations.

Critical Care

SimMan 3G PLUS is designed to simulate clinical conditions with a variety of physiological responses to help train students and critical care teams in the management of critically ill patients with life-threatening medical conditions such as sepsis, heart failure, or acute respiratory distress. Simulate for repeated practice of rare or complex scenarios to help improve patient outcomes and reduce morbidity and mortality in critical care medicine.

Trauma Care

Trauma care requires specialized training in the rapid assessment of traumatic injuries. Students and healthcare professionals in emergency departments and trauma centers use SimMan 3G PLUS to train to provide emergency care such as advanced airway management and hemorrhage control. Scenarios support the practice of critical thinking, clinical diagnosis, and interprofessional team training in emergency care and trauma situations. SimMan 3G PLUS offers unique features and responsive physiology that help improve learning outcomes in high-stress situations.

Behavioral Health Care

SimMan 3G PLUS helps facilitate the training of medical students, nursing students, and behavioral health professionals in a wide range of clinical scenarios and can simulate mental health conditions that allow students to practice conducting a mental health assessment, developing a treatment plan, and rehearsing specialized care situations in a safe, risk-free environment.


Simulation scenarios include medication dosage and administration, as well as adverse drug reactions and drug interactions, allowing medical and nursing students to learn how to safely and effectively administer medications and identify and manage these situations without risk. SimMan 3G PLUS is compatible with Laerdal’s automatic drug recognition system that allows students to administer drugs simultaneously while the system automatically registers drug, dose, and speed and applies the appropriate physiological responses.
