SimNewB is an interactive simulator, designed by Laerdal with the American Academy of Pediatrics to meet the training requirements of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). With realistic newborn traits and lifelike clinical feedback, SimNewB helps neonatal healthcare providers improve team dynamics, build confidence, and practice in a risk-free environment.

Product Benefits:

  • Helps enhance the educational environment by providing highly realistic patient simulation training experiences for the practice of teamwork, leadership and communication skills.
  • SimNewB is designed to be easily integrated into all neonatal training programs.
  • Available in Standard and Advanced versions, SimNewB’s scalable training enables instructors to vary simulations from the delivery room to the NICU.
  • Innovative user interface and scenario designs allow instructors to control the simulator's responses throughout a training session with the push of a button on a handheld remote control or a laptop PC. 
  • Neonatal Resuscitation Program Simulation Support Materials (included with the purchase of SimNewB) are mapped directly to the NRP course materials, facilitating delivery of consistent simulations, reinforcing the NRP curriculum and enabling instructors to easily integrate simulation into their NRP and other neonatal training programs.

Product Features:

  • SimNewB accurately represents a full-term, 50th percentile newborn female, measuring 21 inches and weighing 7 lbs.
  • A wide variety of patient conditions can be simulated ranging from a limp, cyanotic newborn with no vital signs, to a moving, crying, vigorous newborn.
  • The airway is designed to allow 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.
  • The patent umbilicus has a life-like pulse that can be assessed, cut and catheterized for IV access.
  • Pre-programmed scenarios provide standardized training while customizable scenarios and real-time instructor control allows adaptation to meet individual student's needs.
