Obstetric simulation to enhance training effects:
The 3B Scientific® 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 3B Scientific® 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
The 3B Scientific® P90 Birthing Simulator offers the following features for effective obstetric teaching and training:
Fully articulating fetus with open mouth, tiltable head, shoulder blade, and anatomical correct fontanelles
Life-size adult female lower torso, anatomically correct landmarks like pelvis, pelvic cavity, and spine
Manual birthing system to control rotation and speed of fetus delivery
Easy to change position of fetus during birthing process including descend, flexion, extension, internal and external rotation, and restitution
Uterus with correct positioning of fetus, inflatable to lift fetus for Leopold maneuver
Easy change-out of parts through pin connections, no tools necessary
Anti-slip base and handles for extra support on tables
Belt for fastening to table or bed
All consumables and replacement parts are available here.
