SimNewB is a newborn tetherless simulator co-created with the American Academy of Pediatrics, designed to help improve neonatal resuscitation and to meet the specific learning objectives of neonatal resuscitation protocols.
Focusing on the first 10 minutes of life, SimNewB provides realistic training for critical interventions such as lung recruitment maneuvers and advanced airway management.
Learn how to perform the correct techniques
The SimNewB airway is designed with measurements and materials that will allow learners to understand how it feels to perform an airway management procedure correctly with the appropriate resistance.
The airway allows for training in all aspects of newborn airway management, including the realistic feel of "wet or stiff" lungs to succeed in assisting with first breaths by use of positive pressure airway devices and the placement of oral or nasal ET tubes and LMAs.
Ideal for in-situ simulation training
The tetherless design makes SimNewB an ideal simulator for in-situ simulation training, a team-based training technique conducted on the patient care units using equipment and resources from that unit and involving actual members of the healthcare team.
Work together as a team
The first 10 minutes is critical for a newborn. When complications arise, a highly skilled team of healthcare professionals must be ready to deliver quality care.
SimNewB helps healthcare providers practice in a safe and realistic team-centered environment, where learning to communicate effectively and respond as a team can improve patient outcomes.
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 organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics allows learners to master the skills needed to care for neonatal patients and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
Simulation in Teams
SimNewB helps place learners in scenarios that simulate real-life experiences.
Training scenarios can be conducted in-situ to enhance and improve cross-functional team communication within the setting they will perform. These realistic simulations will help to strengthen the learner's ability to assess, diagnose and treat preterm infants as part of a team.
