Simulaids Micro-Preemie Simulator

SKU: W-RR-LF01280//Out of Stock


Life/form® Micro-Preemie Simulator

Approximately 12% or 1 out of every 8 newborns arrive prematurely. Delivery of an extremely low birth weight infant (Less than or equal to 1,000 g) remains to be an extreme medical emergency, requiring specialized techniques and equipment. Simulates a 25-week neonate — the smallest, most realistically proportioned pre-term infant available.

Entirely flexible and offers training opportunities for a number of commonly performed procedures. Extraordinary realism is achieved with the preemie’s pose and lack of muscle tone. Invaluable for simulation training in the care and handling techniques for infants requiring multiple medical interventions at the limits of viability. Perfect for NICU, emergency medical response teams, flight medics, mock code scenarios, nursing schools, medical schools, hospitals, and family education.

Simple to use for simulation, requires no specialized equipment, and is compact and highly mobile. Use for meeting objectives of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program’s course curriculum. Includes Micro-Preemie Simulator, diaper, hat (color may vary), umbilicus, omphalocele, neural tube defect, bilateral chest block, unilateral chest block, airway, 3 cc syringe, 25-gauge butterfly needle, lubricant, blood powder, and bulb and tube assembly.

5-year warranty.

Airway, Breathing, & Ventilation
  • Realistic chest compressions
  • ET tube insertion
  • Bilateral lung expansion with visually dramatic chest rise
  • Unilateral chest movement option (collapsed lung and mainstem intubation)
  • Positive pressure ventilation
  • Sellick maneuver
  • NG/OG tube insertion
  • Chest rise and fall with mechanical ventilation
  • Auscultation of lung sounds during ventilation
  • Manually control rate and depth of respiration
  • Suctioning
Chest Tube
  • A permanent site in the neonate’s right side accepts a nonfunctional 8-10 FR chest tube
  • Practice chest tube insertion and care of the chest tube area
Cleaning & Diaper Changing
  • Practice cleaning, bathing, and diaper changing while neonate is in the incubator
  • Use cold cream to simulate cleaning vernix off of neonate’s delicate skin
  • Waterproof and completely immersible in water
Delivery: Practice emergency delivery and transport scenarios

Gastrointestinal (GI): Left nostril accepts a functioning 5 FR nasogastric (NG) tube for practicing tube feeding and suctioning

Monitoring: Various monitors, sensors, and electrodes may be attached and connected, just as they would be on a real neonate

Neural Tube Defect (Myelomeningocele): Optional structure representing an open neural tube defect easily attaches to the back

Observation & Measurement: Observe and measure each part of the body (head, umbilicus, skin, etc.)

Scenarios: Build your own high-risk delivery, emergency, transport, and NICU scenarios

Skin & Wound Care:
  • Soft, durable lifelike skin
  • Delicate appearance and texture of real skin
  • Skin breakdown is visible in three typical sites: occiput (back of head) and both heels
  • Practice visual observation, care, prevention of skin breakdown, and bandaging
Stomas: Single, removable, nonfunctional stomas to practice bag attachment, care, and cleaning of the ostomy sites

Suction: Practice suctioning nose, oral cavity, and stomach

  • Soft, lifelike umbilicus has one functioning patent vessel
  • Practice placement of umbilical lines
  • Practice blood withdrawal or infuse fluids through a catheter using internal fluid reservoir
  • A separate nonfunctioning umbilicus represents an optional omphalocele
  • Made of soft, realistic material
  • Can be attached and detached easily
Venous Access:
  • Four dry pre-ported sites can accept an IV catheter or butterfly infusion needle: right temporal vein, left antecubital fossa, dorsum of left hand, and right saphenous vein
  • Patent umbilicus
