COPD Simulator - One Size Fits AllSimulating shortness of breath in COPD
COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a severe lung disease with chronic narrowed respiratory tracts, which is mainly caused by smoking. Since the COPD is not curable, it is one of the most common causes of death in the world and is the only one with a rising tendency. Therefore, the prevention of COPD is particularly important, but also a better understanding for COPD sufferers.
Apart from cough and sputum, shortness of breath is one of the main symptoms of COPD, especially under exertion. The COPD simulator simulates the shortness of breath, as this is not only sporadic, like cough, but permanent and so particularly stressful. The COPD simulator consists of an adjustable rib bandage for the restriction of the lung volume and an easily adjustable nose clip to reduce the air flow during inhalation and exhalation.
The use is very safe, because breathing can be done through the mouth in case of excessive shortness of breath. The application is quite easy and requires only a few moments. The COPD simulator is one size.
COPD Simulator has also some essential advantages:
- no hardware disposables like mouthpieces or masks
- one size fits all
- self explanatory in use
- no risk of breathlessness and dizziness
The COPD simulator can be used with the Age Simulation Suit GERT and also separately.
COPD Simulator includes:
- 1 rib bandage
- 1 adjustable nose clip
- 1 bag
- 1 bottle of disinfectant spray (100 ml)
- 24 alcohol pads to degrease the skin if the nose clip slips
