Premature Anne Task Trainer

When used as a task trainer, Premature Anne is designed to help a learner develop and gain competence through hands on training.

Premature Anne Task Trainer is designed to strengthen skills in:

  • Airway management techniques
  • Delivering compressions
  • Vascular access (umbilicus)
  • Practice placement in dry pre-ported IV sites

Premature Anne Task Trainer is available as:

Premature Anne with SimPad PLUS

Premature Anne, when paired with SimPad PLUS, helps place learners in scenarios that simulate real-life experiences.

Training scenarios can be conducted in-situ to enhance and improve cross-functional team communication within the setting they will perform. These realistic simulations will help to strengthen the learner's ability to assess, diagnose and treat preterm infants as part of a team.

There are two configurations available to use Premature Anne with SimPad PLUS:

The Premature Anne with SimPad PLUS consists of the Premature Anne simulator and a SimPad PLUS hand-held remote with 8 pre-programmed scenarios written by the American Academy of Pediatrics and supports the Neonatal Resuscitation Program™.

Neonatal Resuscitation Program™ scenarios are designed for the resuscitation of a 25-week old newborn with:

    • Positive-Pressure Ventilation and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)
    • Positive-Pressure Ventilation and Endotracheal Intubation
    • Positive-Pressure Ventilation, Endotracheal Intubation, and Chest Compressions
    • Positive-Pressure Ventilation, Endotracheal Intubation, Chest Compressions, and Medication
    • CPAP, Oxygen Management, and Orogastric Tube
    • Positive-Pressure Ventilation, CPAP, Intubation, and Surfactant Administration
    • Intubation, Chest Compressions and Umbilical Vessel Catheter Placement: Ethics and Care at the End of Life
    • Resuscitation of 25-Week Newborn Twins



Partnering to improve preterm infant outcomes

Developed in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, Premature Anne allows for new opportunities to integrate the latest technologies into preterm infant training programs.

Pairing Premature Anne and educational content developed and validated by the American Academy of Pediatrics allows learners to master the skills needed to care for preterm infants and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
