    Continuous chest rise?

    Has anyone worked out a way to have continuous chest rise with an air line tethered to the air tank inflation valve?

    Going to run a line to an ALS you might as well buy a SimMan classic on Ebay (our last one was 1000).  Does what you are looking for plus plus plus.

    Great point Dave, but we already have the ALS in house and if the scenario is longer than 20 minutes the chest rise runs out of gas.

    In theory a low pressure compressor with the same connector on the end as the bicycle pump you get with it would work, You can buy them in bike shops easily enough - something like this: http://www.amazon.com/RAD-Sportz-Air-Captain-Compressor/dp/B009ZUUR2W/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1428587094&sr=8-15&keywords=bicycle+pump+compressor I would warn you that I seriously doubt Laerdal would make any guarantees about how safe it is, and you could potentially damage the manikin and/or your users with something like this.

    We use these in our portable (amublance/RV) sim units.  They back any compressor or a simman/airman compressor down to what you are looking for.  Designed for use with your ALS.
