Now 100% Latex-Free with redesigned umbilicus and umbilical valve.
A unique anatomically correct representation of a 18 kg and 406 cm female baby developed to teach and practice the vascular accessing of newborns and infants.
There are barely discernable blue veins under the replaceable translucent skins on the head right and left arms and the right leg. Veins are now made with latex-free Dermalike - with 50% less needle drag when accessing and improved tear resistance to permit a greater number of needle sticks. The veins presented include the temporal external jugular post-auricular basilic cephalic saphenous and popliteal.
When accessing a pop is felt as the needle enters the vein followed by a realistic flashback of simulated blood confirming proper needle placement. The veins were specifically designed to have a small internal diameter as you would find on a small baby. You can practice accessing securing dressing site care maintenance for standard IVs and PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter).
A redesigned umbilicus and umbilical valve allows repeated catheterization with a 5FR umbilical catheter with proper placement verified by a blood return. Nasal and oral openings allow placement of nasal cannulas as well as nasogastric feeding tubes to teach suctioning securing dressing cleansing maintenance.
A great tool for teaching training competency testing and skills assessment.
