1 in 10 babies is born prematurely. Train for this increasingly common event with the best value, surprisingly lifelike, 25-week micro-preemie simulator available.
Unique to the Life/form Micro-Preemie Intubation Simulator, the soft silicone airway is easily replaceable by the user. Intubating a 25-week old is not easy, train with confidence knowing if a mistake is made you can learn from it without having to replace your entire simulator. We even supply one spare airway, just in case!
This premature baby manikin is based on a 25-week neonate - the smallest, most realistically proportioned pre-term infant.
Entirely flexible and offers training opportunities for a number of commonly performed procedures. In addition, extraordinary realism is achievable with the micro-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. Therefore 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 as it requires no specialised equipment. Resulting in a simulator that is compact and highly mobile and can be used to support objectives of the Resuscitation Council UK Neonatal Life Support (NLS) course curriculum.

Cleaning and nappy changing.
Delivery and transfer.
GI - Please note: fluid administration is not recommended, any fluid administered must be suctioned out afterwards.
IV access - Includes 4 moulded-in sites suitable for peripheral IV access, all four will accept an infusion device however, none of the sites are functional.
Neural tube defect (Myelomeningocele).
Observation and measurement.
Simulated breathing and assisted ventilation.
Skin and wound care that includes skin breakdown sites: Occiput and both heels.
Skin is very soft and lifelike.
Umbilicus with an optional omphalocele (non-functional).
