Now 100% Latex-Free with redesigned umbilicus and umbilical valve.
A unique, anatomically correct representation of a 4-lb., 16" female baby developed to teach and practice the vascular accessing of newborns and infants, including the availability of those veins uniquely used in this age group.
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, to make accessing more challenging, improving technique and confidence. You can practice accessing, securing, dressing, site care, and maintenance for standard IVs and PICC (Peripherally Iinserted 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 endotracheal, nasogastric, and feeding tubes to teach suctioning, securing, dressing, cleansing, and maintenance.
A great tool for teaching, training, competency testing and skills assessment. Length 15.5" Sh. wt. 6 lbs.
