SimNewB®

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. 

Treating compromised newborns demands the best training

SimNewB has been designed to be easily integrated into all neonatal clinical training curricula. An innovative user interface and scenario design allows instructors to control the simulator’s responses.

Realistic traits and lifelike clinical feedback

SimNewB allows learners to practice a broad range of neonatal skills within a realistic simulation environment. The airway has been 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.

SimNewB also features:

  • Realistic Anatomy - measuring 52.5cm (21") and weighing 3.17kg (7lbs)
  • Patent Umbilicus with life-like pulse that can be assessed, cut and catheterised for intravenous therapy
  • Intraosseous access in both legs
  • Lung compliance can be altered by an instructor
  • Realistic chest rise can be adapted to be absent or normal, with breathing rates up to 100 breaths per minute

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.

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 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.
