Cardiovascular and Respiratory Exam Trainer (CaRE, Dark Skin Tone)

Skin Tone:


Cardiovascular and Respiratory examinations are a core skill that students’ learn early in their training. CaRE is the first trainer of its kind that can take learners from the first stages of this journey, learning individual skills, such as feeling and identifying pulses, through to full representations of a patient presenting with a cardiovascular or respiratory condition.

With the RFID & other technologies incorporated in this manikin, the replications of heart and lung sounds, as well as pulses and breathing movements, give realistic presentations of 31 clinical cases.


CaRE produces 10 lung sounds and 23 heart sounds, ranging from normal, common, and more specialist conditions. This allows the trainer to be used by a wide range of learners, studying at different levels, to practice their techniques.

Designed with realism in mind, the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Exam Trainer includes a “LimbPAD”. Fit the device to any of the commonly used stethoscopes and simply use the stethoscope as normal.

Realism is key

The Cardiovascular and Respiratory Exam Trainer is our most lifelike simulator to date, with features that bring a new dimension to learning.

Variable chest rise – Symmetrical and asymmetrical chest rise can be set to varying rates, patterns and depth. Feeling and visualising this in a patient is a difficult skill, and this feature gives a haptic and visual learning opportunity.

Finger on the pulse – Set a pulse profile with normal or abnormal properties to improve students’ diagnostic skills. Palpable pulse points throughout the body give realistic, and organic, feel.

  • Realistic thrills at all heart valve locations
  • Visual and palpable representation of heaves
  • Normal and displaced apex beat
  • Normal and displaced trachea and larynx

Suitable for group training

There are two ways to take the CaRE’s teaching capabilities to the next level:

  1. A second LimbPAD can be added to your care model, allowing two, hands-on students to be taught at the same time
  2. With the addition of an off-the-shelf external speaker connected to the LimbPAD via an aux 3.5mm jack, a whole class will be able to participate in training

Simple user controls for students and teachers

Connect your device wirelessly to the CaRE Examination Trainer to control all aspects of the model. Students can test and refresh their knowledge, while teachers can challenge their students’ skills with bespoke characteristics.

Skills section – practice individual skills, including: heart auscultation, lung auscultation, breathing rates, Pulse rates and character, apex beats, thrills, heaves, and mouth sounds.

Clinical cases – capitalises on the patent pending performance of the pulses, lung & heart movement, mouth sounds and chest movements.

Assessment mode – teachers can make class assessments based on the clinical cases, patient history are customisable and make for perfect self-directed learning.

Lesson plans – create individual plans with selected skills, cases and assessments for structured lessons and self-directed learning.

How many pulse points can be found on the cardiovascular and respiratory trainer?

The CaRE simulator supports training for 3 of the 7 pulses in the body.

  • Radial pulse – both wrists have palpable pulse points
  • Carotid pulse – the neck has a pulse point on both sides
  • Femoral pulse – this measurement is not always measured during a cardiac exam, but is included for training purposes

Are we able to use the CaRE manikin to train for multiple patient scenarios?

Yes. As well as the 31 clinical case, trainees can set the model to practice any specific task, you can also add the removable breast module to run tasks on a female model.

Do I need to install software to use the Cardiovascular and Respiratory examination trainer?

There’s no app or specific software required to run training with the CaRE model. When you connect your device to the model’s wi-fi, you will be able to access the cardio and respiratory settings through your internet browser.

Why am I not able to hear heart or lung sounds through my stethoscope?

If you’re unable to hear the programmed sounds, we would advise you to look at the following things:

  • The stethoscope’s connection to the LimbPAD - the diaphragm of the stethoscope may not be properly connected to the LimbPAD, ensure that it’s inserted into the top of the silicone cover correctly and lays flat against the device
  • The LimbPAD’s connection to the CaRE model - the LimbPAD should be paired with the CaRE Trainer through the device, you will be able to see connected LimbPADs in the top corner of the user interface
  • Either the CaRE model or the LimbPAD may require charging

If you continue to have issues, please contact us for further help.

How long can I expect the batteries to last in these devices?

On a full charge we would expect both the CaRE simulator and the LimbPAD to have 8 hours of battery power in them.

  • The CaRE Torso contains a battery pack that is charged via a DC cable (a full charge should take no more than 4 hours)
  • The LimbPAD comes with a USB-C charger

Both show a flashing blue light when they are charging, which turns solid blue when fully charged. The CaRE model can be used when plugged in if required.

Note: Although the devices will be delivered with a residual amount of charge, we would suggest that you charge them before your first use.
