Bronchoscopy Simulator






ORSIM Bronchoscopy Simulator brochure - (2MB)




The ORSIM is an innovative simulator designed to teach advanced bronchoscopy skills in a virtual environment. Specializing in difficult airways, the ORSIM lets practitioners prepare for airway management in real life situations.

ORSIM has unique features and benefits:



ORSIM scenarios are anatomically accurate and clinically relevant. Exceptional graphics and animation create the real challenge of a virtual patient who swallows, breathes and pulsates. A replica bronchoscope promotes psychomotor skill development.

This unrivaled realism augments skills transfer to the clinical environment.



Curriculum Learning

The ORSIM curriculum progresses from non-anatomical models to a range of complex airway pathology in adults and children. Users can experience patients with a retropharyngeal abscess, a vocal cord cyst, angioneurotic edema or a penetrating neck injury, all within the space of an hour.



ORSIM Freestyle or ORSIM Lab

The ORSIM has two learning spaces: ORSIM Freestyle, where users can practice on any chosen scenario; or ORSIM Lab, which guides users through the graduated learning pathway. Users move up the learning curve rapidly. A 3D mode enables viewing of the full bronchial tree during scenarios.

ORSIM Pediatrics

Diverse, exciting and challenging  users can safely practice on a patient with a peritonsillar abscess, a tracheoesophageal fistula, a pencil embedded in the pharynx, and many more pediatric scenarios.


ORSIM Pulmonology


 An essential addition to your ORSIM for professional excellence and improved patient care.


- Lets clinicians develop essential skills, without risk or discomfort to patients
- Allows users to understand normal and distorted anatomy, recognise pathology and improve bronchoscopy skills
- Enables clinicians to practice a diverse range of scenarios to prepare for the complexities of clinical use.



ORSIM Pulmonology™ has been developed in consultation with leading pulmonologists and provides 15 cases, including amyloidosis, small cell carcinoma, thermal injury, aspergillosis, squamous cell carcinoma and many more. Each case includes integrated, relevant, multi-choice questions and feedback.








In real life, learning is not always safe or comfortable for the patient.

The ORSIM replicates clinical scenarios so users can experience challenging and rare conditions, before they encounter them with real patients. Both learners and experienced clinicians benefit by developing and maintaining skills without risk or discomfort.



Performance Measurement

ORSIM measures a user's performanceobjectively against expert parameters or more effective learning.

Each experience can be recorded for playback and debriefing. Users take these learnings and practice to achieve proficiency.

Small, Smart, Economical

This all-in-one, portable training device can be carried with ease and set up in minutes. The ORSIM is a robust training tool enabling autonomous, patient-free learning which reduces bronchoscope repair costs and increases operator efficiency.




Robust Construction


Both the replica video bronchoscope and desktop sensor module are designed for the rigors of training – avoiding expensive damage to clinical bronchoscopes during training.

Recording and Evaluation

Includes metrics for objective scoring and performance evaluation. Instant feed-back is provided through session recording to aid learning and training evaluation.

Due to its small scale and laptop compatibility, it can be stored near the OR for regular use and easily transported to classrooms, training facilities and conferences. All elements fit within the hand-held case.

The ORSIM bronchoscopy simulator is designed to encourage deliberate regular practice of bronchoscopy skills. The following features allow rapid and easy use:


  • User friendly interface
  • Small and lightweight (2kg/ 4.4lbs)
  • Laptop compatible
  • Easily stored in a drawer
  • Easily transported in a briefcase
  • Rapid start-up
  • Robust construction


The ORSIM system consists of three main parts: a replica video bronchoscope, a desktop sensor and a dedicated laptop with software program.


The replica video bronchoscope is connected to the small desktop sensor. The sensor registers movement of the insertion tube and translates this to a three-dimensional virtual airway displayed through the software on the laptop screen. The user can progress through a range of upper and lower airway scenarios receiving instant feedback as well as scoring metrics, recording and play-back.


The ORSIM bronchoscopy simulator provides comprehensive training for a common diagnostic procedure, which until now has required lengthy specialist training. Based on its size, simplicity and economy, it is suitable for large training organizations as well as individual practices.
