Pediatric nurses provide care to young patients like infants, children, and adolescents in hospitals, outpatient clinics, physician’s offices, home healthcare, community organizations, and schools. In order to become a pediatric nurse, they complete a specialized training that qualifies them in all aspects of child patient care. As part of this training, medical simulators are used to explain procedures and train the relevant skills. The use of direct feedback techniques on realistic simulators is an effective tool in nurse training. All procedures can be repeated until performed accurately, without harming a real patient.
Medical simulators in child patient care training provide training scenarios for a large variety of procedures, from routine care to more advanced patient care skills like treating injuries and illnesses as well as emergency care like airway management and child CPR. 3B Scientific® offers child patient care manikins and simulators for training patient care procedures on different pediatric patients of different ages.
