Nita Newborn - Simulator for Venous Vessel Access
Now 100% Latex-Free with redesigned umbilicus and umbilical valve!
A unique, anatomically correct representation of a 1,8 kg and 40,6 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?. 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.
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, and feeding tubes to teach suctioning, securing, dressing, cleansing, and maintenance. A great tool for teaching, training, competency testing and skills assessment.
This model allows access to the following veins:
- Basilic vein and axillary vein (arms)
- Saphenous vein (leg)
- Popliteal vein (leg)
- External jugular vein (neck)
- Temporal vein (head)
- Umbilical vein (navel)
Each of the following methods can be practiced:
- Normal puncture of a vein
- Central venous catheterization
- Umbilical (naval) catheterization
- Positioning a butterfly cannula
- Fixing catheters
- Insertion and care of endotracheal and endonasal catheters and feeding tubes
