Newborn Baby Vascular Access Venipuncture Central Venous Catheter Umbilical Catheter PICC Training
A Newborn Baby, anatomically correct representation of a 4 lb., 16" Female Baby developed to teach and practice the vascular accessing of newborns and infants. An invaluable teaching aid, this simulator permits instruction in the skills associated with accessing, securing, dressing, site care, and maintenance for standard venipuncture, central catheters, PICC lines, and umbilical catheters.
- Access the median basilic and axillary veins on the right and left arm
- Right leg - saphenous and popliteal veins
- Neck and head - external jugular and temporal (scalp) veins
- Realistic back-flow of artificial blood confirms needle location in the vein
- Practice blood withdrawal, fluid infusion, and heparinization with all veins
- Lifelike umbilicus allows repeated catheterization of the umbilical vein, with proper placement verified by a blood return
- An umbilical tape can be tied around the umbilicus to secure the catheter
- Nasal and oral openings allow placement of nasal canulas, as well as endotracheal, nasogastric, and feeding tubes to teach suctioning, securing, dressing, cleansing, care, and maintenance
- When accessing, the skin rolls as you palpate the vein and a “pop” is felt as the needle enters
- Vein size and wall thickness provide the realistic feel and appearance of a newborn
- Simulated, translucent skin allows visualization of the underlying blue veins
- Veins may be accessed repeatedly with a small gauge needle
- Nita Newborn™ includes a flexible body, fluid bag with attached tubing, simulated blood, diaper, and soft carrying case.
