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.
Offering educators realistic and engaging scenario-based simulation to challenge and evaluate critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills, SimMan Essential provides numerous educational opportunities for its users.
The wireless configuration of SimMan Essential makes it possible to move quickly to wherever your training will be most efficient and realistic. From an emergency situation in a remote location through the process of definitive care in a hospital, from a war-torn battlefield to a busy hospital ward – SimMan Essential injects a greater realism into scenario based training.
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 rigours of extensive use in field based simulations.
Operate this simulator, 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.
From basic assessment scenarios to highly complex clinical cases, LLEAP offers ease of use while delivering the performance required by even the most experienced simulation user.
From simulation novices to sophisticated developers, SimCenter has the tools and services to help users realise their full potential. Visit laerdal.com/SimCenter to learn how to optimise your simulation training.
Standardized scenarios from SimStore offer expert authored validated content that help to boost your productivity, while ensuring consistent educational experiences for your learners.
SimManager is a suite of online tools that enables you to fully maximize the information gathered from your simulation education program.
Services & Programs
Laerdal Educational Services offer instructor-led on-site courses to help instructors implement best practices in simulation using hands-on interactive content.
