About SimMom From the Laerdal Website:
“The Automated Delivery Module reduces cost per training session and improves assessment quality by:
- Providing standardisation of delivery scenarios at every training session.
- Allowing fewer instructors to be involved in each training session; only training assessment is needed, not also simulator operation.
- Reducing the demands instructor; improving the quality of assessment, and minimising the risk of instructors becoming fatigued.
Automatic Delivery Module can be used with new and existing SimMom simulators. The Automatic Delivery Module delivers:
- Birthing Baby in different positions
- Normal Occiput Posterior
- Normal Occiput Anterior
- Shoulder Dystocia
- Delivery using Instruments
SimMom is so easy to use that it allows instructors to adapt training to accommodate individual student or team learning needs at basic to advanced levels. SimMom can also be used as a hybrid trainer or full body simulator. In addition, it can be used for non-obstetric training as well as a female pregnancy simulator. Pre-programmed scenarios provide standardised training while customizable scenarios and real-time instructor controls allow scenarios to be adapted, depending on the learning objectives. Prompt and the NLN have developed a range of scenarios for the manual operation of SimMom allowing for full assessment and scoring. Training includes normal and operative vaginal deliveries of infants, vaginal delivery with shoulder dystocia encounters and breech infants. For use with the Automatic Delivery Module HealthCare Simulation in South Carolina have developed a range of scenarios.”
