The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) clearance to Fluke Biomedical’s ProSim vital signs simulators for patient-monitor testing.

The ProSim 8 all-in-one multifunction tester is designed to perform preventive maintenance testing in five minutes or less, while simultaneously simulating ECG, respiration, temperature, IBP/cardiac catheterisation, cardiac output, NIBP and SpO2.

The device is capable of testing new Masimo multi-wavelength SpO2 Rainbow SET in physiologically synchronised pulses, the company says.

The ProSim 4 quick-check touchscreen simulator provides one-touch testing for fast and simple patient-monitor performance checks and troubleshooting.
