TruCorp AirSim Pierre Robin X Airway Management Trainer
Infant Difficult Airway Management Training Manikins
As a result of their unique anatomy, infants with Pierre Robin Syndrome are more likely to present difficulties in airway management. Airway management in patients with uncorrected PRS should be anticipated as potentially very difficult and requires advanced training in difficult paediatric airway management.
- Accurate representation of a paediatric patient with Pierre Robin Sequence
- Anatomically correct details for true to life medical procedure training
- Ideal for practising airway obstruction management techniques
- Provides realistic feedback during airway management and laryngoscopy practice
- ‘Real feel’ skin covering for added realism
- Anatomically correct AirSim® X airway with 5-year warranty certified for over 20,000 intubation cycles
Medical Procedure Training
- Double nasotracheal intubation
- Endotracheal tube insertion
- Bag-valve mask (BVM) ventilation techniques
- Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA)
- Full range of supraglottic device insertion
- Direct and video laryngoscopy
- Manikin is compatible with a full range of supraglottic devices.
Pierre Robin Syndrome Airway Management
The AirSim Pierre Robin X allows training in the full range of supraglottic devices.
The AirSim® Pierre Robin X’s anatomically correct airway has been constructed based on real CT data of a six-month-old infant and exhibits various congenital defects of an infant with PRS including:
- Significant mandibular hypoplasia
- Cleft palate
- Bifid uvula
In addition to the factors specific to Pierre Robin sequence, difficult airways in infants can be caused by the same factors complicating airway management in adults, including limited head extension, reduced mandibular space and increased tongue thickness.2
Airway management skills are fundamental to anaesthesiology. The AirSim Pierre Robin X manikin provides an advanced medical training experience to improve patient safety and outcomes.
Our infant difficult airway trainer provides realistic feedback during and facilitates training in several airway management procedures including:
- Bag-valve-mask ventilation
- Supraglottic device insertion
- Naso and orotracheal intubation
- Direct and video fibreoptic laryngoscopy
Paediatric Airway Obstruction Management
The ‘real feel’ skin covering and accurate anatomy create a more realistic training experience.
Upper airway obstruction is frequently the cause of respiratory distress and failure in paediatric patients with the most common causes being infection, airway swelling and foreign body airway obstruction.
The congenital defects associated with PRS can also affect upper airway patency, as can enlarged tonsils or adenoids.
Techniques and tools for paediatric airway obstruction management include:
- Properly performed bag-valve-mask ventilation
- Use of oral or nasopharyngeal airways during ventilation
- Supraglottic devices including LMA
- Direct laryngoscopy
- Fibreoptic bronchoscope and supraglottic airway used to advance an airway exchange catheter as a conduit for intubation
The AirSim Pierre Robin X trainer allows anesthesiologists and other medical professionals to practise tracheal intubation, mask ventilation and other techniques to overcome the unique challenges presented by this syndrome.
