INTRODUCING THE WORLD’S FIRST 22/23 GESTATION
Lifecast’s new Micro-Preemie Baby Manikin has been created by our highly skilled team at Elstree Studios along with the invaluable assistance of Dr Alok Sharma, Consultant Neonatologist at Southampton Hospital, England.
The development of a manikin that can help prepare healthcare providers in the urgent medical management of these most vulnerable of patients has been a significant challenge and we are very proud to be bringing this to market.
Since micro preemies are born several months before their due dates, they face long stays in the neonatal intensive care units (NICU) and although many extremely premature babies grow up with no long-term effects, most face severe health problems at birth. The initial treatment they receive can have a dramatic impact on how the babies develop over the short and long term and therefore effective medical education plays a critical part in optimising this care.
