Gaumard Launches New Premie HAL 24 Week Newborn Skills Trainer

In the past two years manikin manufacturers have further entered into the premature infant category and today comes another such announcement from Gaumard with their just launched 24-week infant called Premie HAL 24-Week Preterm Newborn Skills Trainer s108.100. Right off the bat we are impressed that the model comes in three shakes of skin color, a feature which has in the past taken years for companies to incorporate into their models. The s108 features realistic lungs that support positive-pressure ventilation devices, manual pulses in brachial, femoral, umbilical, and fontanelle, airway landmarks, and vascular access via hand, scalp, and umbilicus. The device is set in the low-fidelity price range at only $1495.

More About S108 From the Gaumard Website

PREMIE HAL S108.100 is a lifelike, 24-week premature infant simulator designed specifically to meet the training needs of healthcare professionals caring for premature newborns from birth to NICU. At only 1.3 pounds, PREMIE HAL features a realistic airway and true-to-life lung compliance, which enables participants to rehearse airway management, resuscitation, and advanced respiratory support. Ideal for both skills training and scenario-based exercises, PREMIE HAL allows care providers to develop the clinical-know-how and confidence to care for the most vulnerable of patients.
