ECLSim™ – Extracorporeal Life Support Simulator
Simple, fast and effective user interaction with the simulator.
View the instructor interface and the user interface on any device with any internet browser.
ECLSim™ is a unique screen-based simulator that allows the user to train on advanced scenario involving extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and extracorporeal life support.
ECLSim™ includes multi-functional browser-based user and instructor interfaces able to replicate heart-lung support systems for cardiopulmonary support. The trainee can develop the ability to interpret heart-lung support system parameters, formulate diagnoses and adapt the treatment to patients requiring respiratory and / or circulatory support. Furthermore, it allows the instructors to simulate several scenarios, for example, respiratory failure with cardiac impairment or circulatory failure with respiratory impairment, resuscitation, bridge to transplant as well as oxygenator failure, inlet or outlet obstruction, fresh gas disconnection or massive blood loss.
ECLSim™ is composed of a realistic user interface with integrated controls that simulate a real heart-lung support systems for cardiopulmonary support. Additionally, the instructor can display the instructor interface on PCs, tablets, smartphones connected via the network, supporting ECLSim™ during advanced simulation scenarios.
The trainee interface displays alarm messages, system parameters (like arterial pressure, venous pressure, flow, SvO2, etc.) and the user is able to mainly change the “revolutions per minute” like in the real device. It also displays gas blender variables in order to simulate the possibility to vary the oxygenation of the blood during the scenario. The instructor is able to change the value of system parameters in order to simulate several scenarios and follow the user actions during the simulation.
The instructor can interact with the ECMO circuit diagram to change parameter values (immediately or by setting a transient time) and/or enable adverse events (represented by animations or graphic modifications).
The adverse events that the instructor can set are as follows:
- Insufficiency of drainage
- Air in the circuit (pre ML)
- Air in the circuit (post ML)
- Power outage
- Flowmeter artifact
- Blockage of the pulmonary membrane
- Interruption of the gas supply
- Obstruction of the return
The diagram also shows the activations of the alarms set by the learner and the changes to the parameter values performed by the learner.
In the automatic mode, the variations in the quantities involved are linked to each other through a mathematical model.
ECLSim™ includes the following scenarios:
- Gas source detachment from flowmeter and gas blender
- Air entrance in the circuit
- Lung failure membranes
- Flow meter artifacts
- Drainage Insufficiency
