Advanced training in neonatal resuscitation

SimNewB is a newborn tetherless simulator co-created with the American Academy of Pediatrics, designed to help improve neonatal resuscitation and to meet the specific learning objectives of neonatal resuscitation protocols.

Focusing on the first 10 minutes of life, SimNewB provides realistic training for critical interventions such as lung recruitment maneuvers and advanced airway management.

The SimNewB airway has been designed with measurements and materials that will mean learners can feel the correct resistance and feel as they preform an airway management procedure.

The airway allows for training in all aspects of newborn airway management, including the use of Positive-Pressure Airway devices and the placement of ET tubes and LMAs.

Measure to improve resuscitation quality

For effective monitoring and review of CPR performance, QCPR Technology has been incorporated into SimNewB.

Key metrics measured include:

  • Correct compression depth
  • Approriate compression rate
  • Full release
  • Enough hands-on time
  • Adequate ventilation

Realistic anatomy ensures a learner performs correct head tilt, chin lift and experiences appropriate chest resistance and chest rise.

Partnering to improve neonatal outcomes

Developed in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, SimNewB neonatal simulator will allow for new opportunities to integrate the latest technologies into neonatal training programs.

Pairing SimNewB and educational content developed and validated by organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics allows learners to master the skills needed to care for neonatal patients and ultimately improve patient outcomes.

Operation and Debriefing Options

Whether using SimPad PLUS or a LLEAP PC to run your simulation, the software is easy and efficient to use for scenario based training. The intuitive operating platforms provide flexible management of patient parameters, integrated data and video capture, as well as simulated patient monitoring capabilities. Choose the operating systems that works best for your training needs.

Integrated Debriefing

Capture, share and debrief training sessions using synchronised audio, video, and simulation information from one of Laerdal’s debriefing options:

SimView - an integrated debriefing solution giving you the ability to study simulation events more closely.
SimView Mobile - the perfect option for debriefing on-the-go- the system is portable, lightweight and easy to set up.
Session Viewer - enables audio and video capture from 1 HD USB web camera synchronized with the SimPad PLUS or LLEAP data log.

SimNewB has been designed by Laerdal with the American Academy of Pediatrics to meet the training requirements of neonatal emergency medicine and resuscitation courses. With realistic newborn traits and lifelike clinical feedback, SimNewB is ideal for training for the specific needs of neonates.
