Skin Tone:

The AirSim Difficult Airway Trainer has been designed in accordance with the DAS guidelines to aid in the improved management of unanticipated difficult intubations, and is the most realistic trainer on the market.

TruCorp’s latest intubation manikin is an excellent solution for airway management, front of neck access (FONA) devices, and emergency FONA techniques.

Compact and accessible, this airway simulator incorporates multiple features with minimal set up time between training sessions.

To operate the different features of the Difficult Airway Manikin, the base has been equipped with a clear and simple pump system. The hose can be attached to any of the three mechanisms to inflate and simulate different pathologies. The pathologies can be used simultaneously to increase the degree of difficulty

Difficult Airway Features

Laryngospasm – Fully adjustable from normal to complete obstruction of the airway, simulates closure of the vocal cords, and obstructions can be reverse to provide positive feedback upon successful trainee actions.

Tongue Edema – Tongue can be inflated to simulate various degrees of tongue angioedema.

Displaced Larynx – Larynx insert can be adjusted to an anterior position, increasing the difficulty of visualising the vocal cords.

Lockjaw & Jaw Position – The mechanism of the jaw allows the trainer to change the difficulty of scenarios with lockjaw, overbite and underbite, as well as free moving to replicate jaw thrust.

Head Rotational Lock – As standard the model allows for head rotation, the head can also be locked in position to make rotation impossible.

How difficult is it to put the TruCorp Difficult Airway simulator together?

Despite providing multiple pathologies, the Difficult Airway simulator is very easy to use during training.

When you order this AirSim manikin, it will come fully assembled and ready to use straight from the box. The only preparation needed is to attached the suction cups or adhesive pads to the base, secure the manikin to the work surface, and apply lubricant to the airway and equipment.

Disruption between procedures is minimal:

  • Neck skin needs to be rotated to allow for a fresh section of skin over the trachea, simply undo the Velcro fastening, rotate and resecure (Note: rotating the skin will increase the life of the consumable)
  • Larynx inserts vary in life span depending on procedure. Replace the insert after 1 surgical cricothyroidotomy or 2-3 percutaneous tracheostomy procedures. Remove the neck skin and larynx insert, align the new larynx and press into place, and replace the neck skin


How will the trainee know if they have successfully performed their procedure?

A successful intubation will result in the two lungs bags inflating. If they have placed the tube incorrectly in the oesophagus, the stomach bag will inflate.


What are the ongoing costs associated with the Difficult Airway trainer?

This will depend on the types of procedures that you are training in. Consumables for this trainer include lubrication, neck skins, and larynxes, which are available to buy in packs, please see the “Works With” tab for more details.
