The Nita Newborn model is perfect for practicing insertion, assessment, dressing care, securement and maintenance of vascular access devices (VADs) in infants.
Now 100% Latex-Free with redesigned umbilicus and umbilical valve. A unique, anatomically correct representation of a 1,8 kg and 40,6 cm (4lbs, 16″in.) 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”. The veins presented include the temporal, external jugular, post-auricular, basilic, cephalic, saphenous and popliteal. 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.
You can practice accessing, securing, dressing, site care, and maintenance for standard IVs and PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter). 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.
Nita Newborn simulator is perfect for following infant training scenarios:
The small, infant-sized veins include the temporal, external jugular, post-auricular, basilic, cephalic, saphenous, and popliteal
Successful access is confirmed by a flashback of simulated blood
Ability to practice set up and access of an umbilical catheter
Nasal and oral openings allow placement of nasal cannulas, as well as nasogastric, and feeding tubes to teach suctioning, securing, dressing, cleaning, and maintenance
