Bridge the gap between your Laerdal SimMan 3G or SimMan Essential patient simulator and your own commercially available patient monitor

VitalsBridge has been designed to function with different brands and models of commercially available vital signs monitors. It presents the following vital signs on your clinical monitor:

  • Heart rate
  • Respiration via ECG impedance
  • Plethysmograph waveform
  • Capnograph waveform
  • SpO2 via finger clip (non-disposable)
  • End-tidal CO2 via Side Stream Measurement Technology
  • Non-invasive and invasive blood pressure
    (arterial, central venous, pulmonary artery)
  • Temperature

VitalsBridge converts SimMan 3G's and SimMan Essential's digitized vital signs into signals that are compatible with a vital signs monitor. Compressed CO2 gas simulates the signals for non-invasive blood pressure and capnography. 

Realistic training enables you to confidently provide the best care

Practice makes perfect, and by using the patient monitors and your patient cables you would be using in a real life situation, your simulation training allows you to practice and perfect your evaluation of a patients' Vital Signs in a more realistic environment. 

You have the opportunity to upgrade your simulations, without purchasing a new simulator

It's easy to upgrade your existing SimMan 3G or SimMan Essential to include the VitalsBridge platform enabling you to use your own patient monitors during training. Just purchase the upgrade kit with VitalsBridge and install it with assistance from an FSE. It is important to know, that you can purchase an upgrade-kit installed by an FSE for your SimMan Essential or SimMan Essential Bleeding to broaden the functionallity of these simulators using VitalsBridge as well.

Support your simulation training with Laerdal teaching and management resources

The vital signs created by the VitalsBridge are controlled using the SimMan 3G Instructor Application (LLEAP) and a piece of software that establishes a connection between VitalsBridge and the SimMan 3G, and gives you access to support materials for training from SimCenter. This way you can run pre-programmed Simulations, manage your training and provide students with informative feedback.
