Enhancing pediatric airway management with Atlas Junior and REALITi 360

3B Scientific GmbH

Mastering airway management skills is crucial for healthcare professionals in the world of pediatric care. This is especially true in emergencies where children are involved, as their anatomical structures are significantly different from adults. Atlas Junior, a state-of-the-art Advanced Life Support (ALS) pediatric manikin from 3B Scientific, offers an unique tool in this vital area of medical training. Designed to simulate a 5-year-old child, Atlas Junior allows for hands-on, realistic practice in pediatric airway management, including intubation and the use of various airway adjuncts.

Realistic anatomical features

Atlas Junior stands out with its anatomically accurate representation of a child’s airway, featuring detailed structures such as the tongue, nasopharynx, oropharynx, uvula, epiglottis, vallecula, vocal cords, esophagus, trachea, and thyroid cartilages. Such precision not only enhances the realism of the simulation but also provides trainees with a tactile experience that mirrors real-life scenarios. The ability to perform both oral and nasal intubation using basic to advanced airway management adjuncts, such as OPA (oropharyngeal airway), NPA (nasopharyngeal airway), and LMA (laryngeal mask airway), makes it an invaluable training tool.

Training in airway management techniques

The unique design of Atlas Junior’s head supports multiple airway management techniques, crucial for responding effectively to pediatric emergencies. Trainees can practice the BURP (Backward, Upward, Rightward Pressure) maneuver to improve visualization of the Glottis during intubation, a critical skill in emergencies involving small children. Atlas Junior facilitates training in managing falsely esophageal intubation and effective bag-valve-mask (BVM) ventilation.

Integration with REALITi 360 for enhanced learning

Atlas Junior is seamlessly integrated with REALITi 360, a simulation system that mimics various patient monitors, defibrillators, and ventilators used in both pre-hospital and clinical environments. This integration provides real-time CPR feedback, including both compression and ventilation values, which are essential for comprehensive ALS training. The real-time feedback mechanism ensures that learners can immediately see the results of their interventions, enabling quick learning and adjustment.

Benefits of using Atlas Junior in your training programs

Using Atlas Junior in pediatric training programs offers numerous benefits:

  • Safety: Provides a risk-free environment for trainees to learn and make mistakes without the consequences associated with real-life procedures.
  • Confidence: Builds confidence among healthcare providers as they refine their skills in a controlled setting, preparing them for real-world applications.
  • Skill proficiency: Ensures healthcare providers can achieve a high level of proficiency in pediatric airway management, crucial for improving patient outcomes in emergencies.
Do you already know Atlas?

To assist trainers and educations involved in preparing medical teams to respond to emergencies, 3B Scientific and iSimulate have developed Atlas – the ALS Manikin, a training manikin that integrates REALITi 360 to train the ALS algorithm, including manual defibrillation, airway management, and drug delivery during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), as well as the treatment of peri-arrest arrhythmias. Designed to create in-situ training for the most realistic simulation scenarios, Atlas is affordable and easy to use.
