We offer the latest in simulation equipment, including:

  • Gaumard Noelle Birthing Mannequin teaches basic and advanced obstetrical skills for normal labor and delivery to more complex situations.
  • SimNewB – an interactive simulator, with realistic feedback, designed to meet Neonatal Resuscitation Program training requirements.
  • PROMPT Birthing Simulator – teaches the complexities of birthing so participants can experience childbirth and practice the necessary skills.
  • SimCapture – controlled web-based audio and video for live feed and debriefing review of various procedures, such as:
    • Ectopic Pregnancy Model – allows clinicians to develop and practice first trimester transvaginal ultrasound exams.
    • Episiotomy Repair Model – a three-stage system for teaching episiotomy, suturing and repair of episiotomy and second-degree tears.
    • Newborn Infant Venous Access Model – an anatomically correct representation of a female baby to teach vascular accessing of newborns and infants.
  • Central Venous Access Module – teaches cannula approaches and insertions of central venous catheters into the superior vena cava, with and without ultrasound guidance.
  • Diagnostic Breast Trainer – life-size breast to train for examination procedures and diagnostic techniques.
  • Office Hysteroscopy Set – allows clinicians to practice introducing and using the Hysteroscope.
  • LaproTrain – high-resolution video optics and a complete set of instruments that offer a realistic laparoscopic training experience.
  • Female Pelvis Model – an anatomical and tactile representation of the female pelvis for hands-on examination and diagnosis of pathologies and abnormalities.
  • Premie HAL – a fully responsive model to help train individuals to care for compromised newborns.
  • MamaNatalie Birthing Simulator – a birthing simulator that makes it easy to create very compelling simulations of complex or normal birthing scenarios.
  • Koken Breastfeeding Modules – used for various kinds of practice in infant nursing.
  • Difficult Airways Simulator– used to simulate an obstructed airway and is designed for training the management of difficult airways.
