APL - Pulses/Breathing (APL-PB)


Price Upon Request

NSN: 6910-01-633-7485

High Fidelity Upper Body Trauma Trainer

The APL-PB incorporates pulses, breathing, and real-time feedback. Using the APL-PB, learners are able to physically locate both radial and carotid pulses, assess breathing patterns, and use this information to perform appropriate interventions. The APL-PB also incorporates other intervention training such as maintaining a patient’s airway, needle decompression, identifying tension pneumothorax, bi-lateral chest tube insertion, cricothyroidotomy, and Intraosseous (I/O) infusion.

Key Features

  • Active breathing with chest rise and fall
  • Radial and carotid pulses
  • Airway management
  • Moveable jaw
  • Intubation
  • Oropharyngeal Airway (OPA)
  • Nasopharyngeal Airway (NPA)
  • Selectable airway obstruction
  • Cricothyroidotomy
  • Needle decompression (troacentesis)
  • Tension pneumothorax
  • IV insertion
  • Intraosseous (I/O) infusion
  • Adjustable eyes (pupils constricted or dilated)
  • Two-way audio communication
  • Remote controlled
  • Real-time digital feedback for trainers
  • Teeth sensor

Product Details

  • Multiple sensors relay results to trainer in real-time, taking the guesswork out of simulation
  • Simulated breathing and coordinated breath sounds in 4 quadrants
  • Palpable radial and carotid pulse points
  • Simulates tension pneumothorax in either side with appropriate physiologic cues
  • Flexible jaw with internal tracheal landmarks for orotracheal intubation
  • Bilateral chest tube insertion sites with replaceable, multiple-use skin plugs
  • Oral airway cavity (with teeth and tongue) for oropharyngeal intubation
  • Teeth sensor to detect excessive contact during intubation
  • Trainer-selectable airway obstruction at the nose or throat to cue for surgical cric
  • Simulated cricothyroidotomy with larynx, and single and multiple-use replaceable skin plugs
  • Realistic manubrium allows intraosseous (I/O) training with fluid infusion
  • Interactive needle decompression training sites (full size 3.25” 14 gauge needle) with replaceable multi-use skin plugs and pleural membranes
  • Ruggedized Remote Control with real-time training validation and feedback
  • 2-way Communication (TWC) audio system allows trainer to speak through the simulator

Remote Controlled with Real-time Sensor Data

All TacMed Simulation high-fidelity simulators are operated by a long-range RC controller which includes real-time telemetry to monitor medical interventions. Easy to use, menu-driven software takes only minutes to learn and sensor data is immediately displayed on the main control screen for quick reference. The display shows key vitals and provides instructors with instant data on the effectiveness of student interventions such as tourniquet application, wound hemostasis, airway intervention, needle decompression, and chest tube placement. 


TacMed Solutions upper and lower trainers can be combined in any configuration to increase training capabilities.
