This 25-week ELBW (Extremely Low Birth Weight) neonate is the smallest and most realistic pre-term infant available. Delivery of an ELBW infant remains to be an extreme medical emergency, requiring specialized techniques that can be trained with this outstandingly realistic simulator.
The baby can be ventilated and will accept a functional ET tube, NG tube, umbilical catheter, and IV line, as well as a non-functional chest tube and stomas.
Delivered with: diaper, hat (colour may vary), umbilicus, omphalocele, neural tube defect, bilateral chest block, unilateral chest block, airway, 3 cc syringe, 25-gauge butterfly needle, lubricant, blood powder, and bulb and tube assembly.
Manikin can be used with Supraglottic airway devices for airway training.
Features & Functions:
Airway, breathing, and ventilation
Cleaning and diaper changing
Neural tube defect (Myelomeningocele)
Observation and measurement
Skin and wound care
Skin is very soft and lifelike
Umbilicus with optional omphalocele
Various monitors, sensors, electrodes, etc., can be attached to the manikin wherever needed
Approximately 12% or 1 out of every 8 newborns arrive prematurely
Delivery of an extremely low birth weight infant (≤1,000 g) remains to be an extreme medical emergency, requiring specialized techniques and equipment
Simulates a 25-week neonate - the smallest, most realistically proportioned pre-term infant available
Entirely flexible and offers training opportunities for a number of commonly performed procedures
Extraordinary realism is achieved with the preemie’s pose and lack of muscle tone
Invaluable for simulation training in the care and handling techniques for infants requiring multiple medical interventions at the limits of viability
Perfect for NICU, emergency medical response teams, flight medics, mock code scenarios, nursing schools, medical schools, hospitals, and family education
Simple to use for simulation, requires no specialized equipment, and is compact and highly mobile
Use for meeting objectives of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program’s course curriculum
