Designed to meet the training requirements of neonatal emergency medicine and resuscitation courses, the SimNewB® simulator helps facilitate delivery of consistent simulations enabling instructors to easily integrate simulation into their neonatal training programs.  It helps improve team dynamics, builds confidence and facilitates practice in a risk-free environment.  Utilizing SimNewB for multidisciplinary simulation-based training allows healthcare providers to improve communication, refine critical thinking skills, and ultimately help improve neonatal patient outcomes.


Product Benefits:

  • Helps enhance the educational environment by providing highly realistic patient simulation training experiences for the practice of teamwork, leadership and communication skills
  • Designed to be easily integrated into all neonatal training programs
  • Available in Standard and Advanced versions for scalable training, enabling 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 SimPad System or a laptop PC

Product Features:

  • 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 lifelike pulse that can be assessed, cut and catheterized for IV access

*The SimPad System is required for operation of the SimNewB SimPad Capable Simulator.  Sold separately. See the SimPad System page for more information.
