Fluke Biomedical announced today it has released the PS420 patient simulator, a high-performance simulator for testing patient monitors.

The lightweight PS420 is small enough to easily fit in a pocket and features simulation capability covering a full range of ECG, respiration, blood pressure, temperature, and cardiac output conditions.

The PS420 is battery operated and features clearly labeled hot keys on the keypad to guide users to the most common settings, 12-lead ECG output, two-channel blood pressure simulation, 35 arrhythmia selections, pacemaker simulation, as well as adult and pediatric normal sinus rhythms.
