Introduction to LLEAP - Laerdal Learning Application
SimBaby is an advanced infant patient simulator ideal for training in all aspects of infant care. With realistic anatomy and clinical functionality, SimBaby is suitable for all types of training - from routine care to critical emergencies.
Treating compromised infants demands realistic team training to ensure healthcare providers are equipped to respond, diagnose and treat critically ill infants in an emergency. The SimBaby™ full-scale simulator has realistic anatomy and clinical functionality to help learners practice and perfect their skills through hands-on experience ensuring best possible outcomes for the youngest of patients.
Infant assessment and care can pose many challenges to the healthcare professional. During an infants first year their physiological development dramatically changes. Simulation in Education can prepare students and professionals to continuously improve basic and advanced clinical skills necessary to ensure the health and well-being of our smallest patients.
SimBaby can help educators achieve the optimal training environment to ensure the best possible patient outcomes. By training in cross-functional teams, simulation scenarios can mirror real-life situations allowing the learner to experience those life and death situations before ever having to respond to a critically-ill patient.
Patient outcomes are dependent on the competence of the healthcare professional. Performing real procedures such as defibrillation, chest tube insertion, and airway management, allows learners to practice core skills in a risk-free environment so that they are better prepared in emergency situations.
Training of all aspects of infant airway management including positive pressure ventilation, insertion of LMA’s, and ET Tubes. The anatomy can be dramatically changed to represent conditions such as tongue edema, pharyngeal swelling, and laryngospasm.
SimBaby can simulate spontaneous breathing patterns with variations in depth and rate, and complications such as retractions and see-saw breathing. Critical conditions such as tension pneumothorax can be simulated and managed through needle thoracentesis, and chest tube insertion. During hypoxic conditions SimBaby will present cyanosis in the mouth region.
The blood pressure can be adjusted and measured manually by auscultation of Korotkoff sounds. Pulses can be assessed at the radial, brachial, and femoral pulse points.
SimBaby allows for live defibrillation, pacing, and synchronised cardioversion.
SimBaby has an IV arm and bilateral IO/IV legs, which can be connected to reservoirs to allow for volume infusion and blood sampling.
With lifelike traits such as a fontanel that can be adjusted to present as normal or bulging and torso motion to simulate seizure, SimBaby helps healthcare providers recognise and manage pediatric emergencies.
Operate this simulator, as well as all other Laerdal PC-operated simulators, with LLEAP software. LLEAP brings simplicity to running simulation training and efficiencies to the management and development of scenarios.
From basic assessment scenarios to highly complex clinical cases, LLEAP offers ease of use while delivering the performance required by even the most experienced simulation user.

Developed in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, SimBaby will allow for new opportunities to integrate the latest technologies into neonatal training programs.
Pairing SimBaby and educational content developed and validated by organisations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics allows learners to master the skills needed to care for neonatal patients and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
