  Pulse Oximeter Simulator

Designed for use with standardised patients or simple manikins, this simulator provides all the functions of a hand held pulse oximeter. When the probe is placed on the finger, the oximeter displays saturations and pulse rates consistent with designed scenarios, variable pitch audible beeping is also generated to add realism. The trainer can change values in keeping with the success or otherwise of administered treatments.

Getting a head start at city brain school
