Obstetric simulation to enhance training effects :
The Birthing Simulator P90 PRO has been developed for the skill training in normal deliveries, in complicated deliveries and in obstetric emergencies. Obstetric simulation has proven successful to enhance the training of delivery skills, following of protocols and reaction in emergency situation.
Assessment and manipulation of fetal positions :
Birthing complications are in general less likely when an abnormal fetal position or presentation can be detected before the labor process starts. Using obstetric simulation, trainees will learn how to detect abnormal positions and presentations, and how to use manual techniques to assist the birthing process. Training of manual birthing maneuvers (like Leopold, or Pinard’s) must be trained so that correct measures are applied during complicated deliveries. Furthermore, the trainee will learn when to apply obstetric emergency interventions (like a cesarean section).
With the P90 PRO Birthing Simulator you can see how manual maneuvers affect the fetus in-utero and train the following delivery skills and techniques :
- Normal vaginal delivery.
- Normal delivery of umbilical cord and placenta.
- Palpation and assessment of fetal position and presentation.
- Diagnosis of all normal and abnormal fetal positions and presentations (like face, neck, or brow) to represent routine and difficult deliveries.
- Intrauterine manipulation of fetus.
- Shoulder dystocia demonstration and management.
- Breech deliveries (including complete, footling or incomplete, and frank breech presentation).
- Palpation of fetal fontanelles features.
- Complete and incomplete placenta birth.
- Demonstration of placenta previa: total, partial, and marginal.
- Prolapse of umbilical cord.
- Nuchal umbilical cord.
- Cesarean delivery with incision.
- Artificial rupture of membranes (ARM or AROM, amniotomy).
- Clamping and cutting of umbilical cord.
- Simulated suctioning of baby’s mouth and nose.
- Leopold maneuver.
- Pinard’s maneuver.
- Mauriceu-Smellie-Veit maneuver.
- Prague maneuver.
- Woods maneuver.
