SimNewB is an interactive simulator, designed by Laerdal together with the American Academy of Pediatrics to meet the training requirements of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). It is a baby with realistic traits and able to offer complete feedback. SimNewB is ideal for training courses on the specific needs of newborns.

Treatment of endangered infants requires the best training. SimNewB was designed to be easily integrated into all neonatal clinical training curricula. An innovative user interface and scenario design allows instructors to check the simulator’s responses.


Realistic clinical traits and feedback

SimNewB allows students to practice on a wide range of neonatal skills within a realistic simulation environment. The airways were designed to allow training in all aspects of newborn airway management, including the use of positive pressure breathing devices and ET and LMA tube placement.

SimNewB also presents:

  • Realistic anatomy – measures 52.5cm (21″) and weighs 3.17kg (7 lbs).
  • Patented navel with realistic pulsation that can be evaluated, cut and catheterized for intravenous therapy.
  • Intraosseous access in both legs.
  • Lung compliance can be altered by an instructor.
  • Realistic chest lift can be adapted to be absent or normal, with breathing rates up to 100 breaths per minute.
