With this simulator, infant vital signs can be measured and the entire body can be monitored. A crying-sound function reproduces the clinical setting more realistically, while heart and breathing sounds can be checked, creating hands-on training of measurement and monitoring close to those of the actual clinical environment.
Heart and respiratory rates
The heart rate and respiratory rate are displayed digitally over a normal range, and the infants status can easily be set by turning a rotary dial.
Heart sounds and breathing sounds
An external speaker provided on the control box make these sounds audible to persons in the nearby environment.
The sounds can be set independently, so the balance can be adjusted to match the status settings.
Highly realistic sounds are produced with clear sound quality.
Four different crying patterns can be reproduced.
Four buttons are provided to enable direct operation.
Silicone rubber is used to produce an extremely realistic texture.
Monitoring of the head area (palpation of skull molding) includes locating the anterior fontanel, posterior fontanel, sagittal suture, and coronal suture.
A rectal thermometer can be inserted.
Vital sign measurement includes auscultation of heart and breathing sounds.
Thoracoabdominal breathing synchronized to the set respiration rate can be observed visually.
The sound of crying can be heard coming from the mouth.
