Understanding xlung

The Xlung is an web-based platform for teaching mechanical ventilation using virtual simulation and other resources

Associated with a toolset , xlung enables users to learn, develop and refine their skills in the área.

See some benefits of being a xlung subscriber :

  1. Zero risk for patients and therefore tranquility for the learning.

  2. Online training opportunities , individually or in groups.

  3. Variety of clinical scenarios with many levels of complexity.

  4. A website aimed for professionals, students and teachers involved in healthcare, or just people curious about Mechanical Ventilation, presenting educational and informative content on the topic.

  5. Access to the most comprehensive and dynamic tool to learn and improve the management of mechanical ventilation.

Subscribing to the site, you will receive the latest news from xlung and Mechanical Ventilation in general.

By becoming a subscriber, you can use the virtual ventilator without any time restriction, from any computer, in addition, you will have at your disposal the Mechanical Ventilation Manual, virtual classes on the subject and a weekly quiz with medical challenges addressing different clinical scenarios to practice as many times as you want.


About the Simulator


Patient

Clinical profile, demographic data, respiratory muscle pressure and air leaks during the simulation.

Data Monitoring

Ventilatory, gasometric and other real-time data monitoring.

Curves

Real-time curves of tidal volume, flow and airway pressure.

Ventilator

Ventilator settings, like the ventilatory modes and their respective parameters.

The virtual mechanical ventilador enables the use of the most important and used ventilation modes , or even allows the patient to be in spontaneous ventilation (with no ventilator).

The monitoring occurs through mechanical curves, plus information from the pulse oximeter, arterial blood gas analysis and an inspiration and expiration animation.

The virtual patient responds to the adjustments on the ventilator settings, enabling real-time feedback on the measures adopted. The patient can be configured, including the demographic data (gender, height, weight, age), the respiratory mechanics (respiratory comphiance), the pulmonary gas-exchange (shunt and dead space) and the muscular effort pattern and respiratory drive (respiratory rate, effort and duration of diaphragmatic muscular effort).

The virtual simulation is very realistic, it includes sounds of alarms, air movement during inspiration and high definition mechanical curves.

Being entirely web-based, the simulator does not imply a need for downloads, has minimal memory footprint on your computer and can be deployed on a large scale, therefore the platform is very useful for teaching institutions, due to it's high benefit-cost.

As additional feature, it is possible to save the simulation for later use or share with collegues, students and other subscribers anywhere in the world with internet access.
