    Noise or hiss with Pneumothorax decompression?

    Does anyone with 3G get a Hissing sound/noise when they decompress Sim Man 3G with needle?

    I've tried 20g cannula, but I don't want to try larger as I may have to replace the bladder (recommended not to go larger than 22G anyway)...

    Do you mean you wish to have the sound? 

     

    why not add a wav file that is played when the pneuothorax is relieved? a simpler handler would be enough.

    I too have tried to 'decompress' the chest and didn't get a sound. I've downloaded a wav file and included that in our scenarios. if you're still having a problem, contact me and I'll send you the file

    best wishes
