Life/form Micro-Preemie Intubation Simulator
This Micro-Preemie Intubation Simulator is based on a 25-week neonate – the smallest, most realistically proportioned pre-term infant available.
Entirely flexible and offers training opportunities for several commonly performed procedures. In addition, extraordinary realism is achievable 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. 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 for meeting the objectives of the Neonatal Resuscitation Programs course curriculum.

Observation and measurement
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)
Attach various monitors, sensors, electrodes, etc., to the manikin wherever needed
