1 Welcome to the Phoenix SUN! Simulator Maintenance: SimMan, SimBaby and SimNewBBen RhudyField Service EngineerLaerdal Medical
2 Simulator Maintenance Workshop OBJECTIVES:Learn about the maintenance services provided by LaerdalLearn the benefits of periodic simulator maintenanceDiscover ways to extend the “life” of your simulatorsLearn how to troubleshoot common problemsShare your tipsAsk questions!
3 Preventative Maintenance Preventative Maintenance programs are the simplest way to control costs with planned maintenance services. With each yearly service, our Field Service Engineers will ensure that your products maintain peak performance through our extensive testing process and replacement of worn consumables.Other benefits:Assessment of functionality by a trained professionalFSE can call in to start return or repair process (if covered under warranty)Latest software/firmware updates for the covered product
4 Types of PM Return to Bench Includes: • 1 Service per year (product returned to Laerdal)• Full refurbishment or replacement of all consumables and injection pad sets• Refurbishment of skin and/or veins on I.V. arm• Product cleaning• Final test and inspection of manikin• Documentation of findings and recommendations (if applicable)
5 Onsite PM On-Site (For simulation products only) Includes: 1 Service per year (on-site visit by Field Service Engineer)Full refurbishment or replacement of all consumables, some bladders and injection pad setsIncludes head skin and airwayRefurbishment of skin and/or veins on I.V. armInternal inspection of Compressor and LinkboxUpgrades of Laerdal product software to latest version applicable to platformManikin/link box software updatesProduct cleaningFinal test and inspection of manikinDocumentation of findings and recommendations (if applicable)

7 Cleaning Good old soap and water Isopropyl alcohol (70%) Goo B Gone Goof OffBaby powder with cornstarch to remove adhesivesAVOID anything that lists kerosene or other fossil fuels as an ingredient! It will eat through the plastic!ACNE PADS!Sunlight can fade deep pen marks
8 INK FREE ZONEAvoid these items when handling the simulators
9 Replacing IV Arm SkinsDisclaimer: Some IV arms skins may be made TOO tight from the factoryIf the old arm skin is ruined, CUT IT OFFThe wrist is the keyLiquid dish soap is also the key Look at old tubing to learn how it attachesUse DOTS of super glue to hold the tubing in placeMAKE SURE fingers are in place before sliding over the wristIf wrist just won’t go through:Try heating the skin with a blow dryer (wrist area)Soak the skin in hot waterCall Laerdal and request a new skin or arm
10 Is your IV arm moldy?Over time, the fluids your students inject may cause mold to appearWhile probably not unsafe, it may start to smellThere is no real way to clean mold from inside the armBEST ADVICE: Contact Laerdal to arrange for a replacement arm to be sent
11 SimBaby Esophagus Filter Every SimBaby comes with a bag of replacement esophagus filtersFilter prevents lubricant from entering valvesIf you frequently perform airway management on SimBaby, you should change the filter every two to four weeks.Our depot repair team has seen ruined valve banksAnthony has extras in the back for free!
12 Monthly maintenance guide Compressor:Check the compressor for unusual sounds (rattling, clattering), overheating (electrical, oily smell)Check if it runs continually, (it should not)Outer Skin:Clean outside skin with warm soapy water and let dry (wipe down with dry towel and then air dry).Remove tape adhesive with powder/cleanersOuter Skin, head-to-toe: After cleaning with soap/water, powder down exterior surface from head to toe (powder acts as a barrier for “hand grunge/oils”). Encourage learners to use surgical gloves when interacting with patient simulators.
13 Monthly maintenance guide Pt 2 Internal chest: Lightly powder the following areas: :inside chest skin,chest wallunder chest wall (lift chest wall plate, take care not to disconnect hoses, wiring)surfaces of white lungssurfaces of inflation bladderIV ArmCheck smell. If odorous/mildew it’s time for skin and veins changedWhen using IV arm with fluids such as simulated blood, add ¼ teaspoon bleach into blood mixture
14 Monthly maintenance guide Pt 3 IM injection Pads (total of 4 on SimMan: right deltoid, right gluteus, left ventral gluteus, left lateral thigh)Check smell. If odorous/mildew remove the internal pads, submerge and squeeze in a soapy/bleach (only 1 teaspoon bleach per gallon),Using BVM, check for good rise/fall of chest inflation. If deficient, first check for punctured or loose tape under neck skin that covers hole in trachea. If tape has good seal, remove chest skin and chest plate to inspect for loose fittings at lung bag or bronchial tree connections.

32 SimMan / SimBaby Installation Calibrate the Touch Screen Monitor Double click on the “ELO” icon in the system trayClick on the align button on the dialog that appearsPress the Esc key on your keyboard (this sends the bullseye to the ELO monitor)Touch each target as it appears on the patient monitor
34 SimMan / SimBaby Installation Update the software in the Manikin and Link Box Start the manikin update program from the start menuStart updateThis program will automatically update all software in the link box and in the manikin
35 SimMan / SimBaby Installation Connect power cable to compressor and wall outletConnect dual-lumen air tube to manikin and compressor
36 SimMan / SimBaby Installation Step 8b – Operating the Compressor Set power to off position “o”Close drain valveClose air valve and CO2 valveSwitch power to on position “I”Compressor will start and run for approximately 45 secondsWhen compressor stops, open the air valveThe compressor will start and stop with different intervalsWhen compressor is turned off,the air tank must be drained
37 Valve BankWhen compressor is turned off,the air tank must be drained
