  • To perform a complete airway inspection
  • To practice endobronchial and transbronchial tissue sampling using biopsy forceps, cytology brush, aspirating needle and BAL
  • To sedate and maintain virtual patient’s condition avoiding hemodynamic and respiratory complications
  • To practice on a variety of virtual patients, each exhibiting unique anatomy, pathologies and altering response to moderate sedation
  • To perform in a true-to-life environment where operational or clinical mistakes can be made and learnt from
