Simulation Ventilator

Hello,

I am looking at ventilators for our simulation center.  I would like to buy or rent one that can work without concentrated oxygen or a big tank, one that works with room air.  We have compressed air.  I would like students to see settings, respond to alarms, suction, and demonstrate care/VAP prevention.  If you have ventilators in your simulation center, Advice/information would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

When we need a ventilator in the nursing lab for a simulation, we borrow one from the respiratory therapy program. If you are in a similar situation you could try that.
