Working in patient care in a clinical environment requires good training of the medical staff. Tasks in the nursing field include independent observation, guidance, auscultation, support and care of patients, both in-patients and out-patients. Additionally, depending on the specialisation and qualifications of the medical staff, they may also document and evaluate nursing measures, as well as carry out medical instructions and assist with medical interventions. Therefore, 3B Scientific and Cardionics introduce Nikki the Nursing Manikin with Auscultation to offer the ideal training solution for nurse aid competencies as well as auscultation skills.
Nikki the Nursing Manikin with Auscultation simulates an adult, life-size patient and includes the NursingScope Auscultation Training Stethoscope powered by Cardionics. NursingScope is an electronic simulation-training stethoscope created for auscultation training purposes. It functions wirelessly by a controller tablet, which gives the instructor access to the large sound library by Cardionics. The instructor has the ability to select and change any of the physiological and pathological sounds that the trainee will hear through the NursingScope once they place the stethoscope on an auscultation site correctly.
Training with Nikki is suitable for a wide range of simulation scenarios, including Nurse Aid Training and Competency Evaluation Programs (NATCEP) or O.S.C.E (Objective Structured Clinical Examination). The auscultation training features of Nikki are powered by Cardionics with an extensive sounds library. The library includes 11 anterior and 4 posterior sites, with high quality auscultation sounds like 21 heart sounds, including Aortic Stenosis, Patient Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) and Mitral Valve Prolapse; 16 lungs sounds, including Stridor, Pectoriloquy and Pulmonary Edema; plus 6 bowel sounds, including Borborygmus, Hypnoactive Bowel and Normal Bowel Sounds.
