A unique, anatomically correct representation of a 4 lb., 16" female baby developed to teach and practice the vascular accessing of newborns and infants. An invaluable teaching aid, this simulator permits instruction in the skills associated with accessing, securing, dressing, site care, and maintenance for standard venipuncture, central catheters, PICC lines, and 5FR umbilical catheters. Veins now made of latex-free Dermalike™.
Access the median basilic and axillary veins on the right and left arm
Right leg - saphenous and popliteal veins
Neck and head - external jugular and temporal (scalp) veins
Realistic flashback of simulated “blood” confirms proper needle location in the vein
Practice blood withdrawal, fluid infusion, and heparinization with all veins
Lifelike umbilicus allows repeated catheterization with a 5FR umbilical catheter, with proper placement verified by a blood return
Now with redesigned umbilical valve
An umbilical tape can be tied around the umbilicus to secure the catheter
Nasal and oral openings allow placement of nasal canulas, as well as endotracheal, nasogastric, and feeding tubes to teach suctioning, securing, dressing, cleansing, care, and maintenance
• When accessing, the skin rolls as you palpate the vein and a “pop” is felt as the needle enters
• Vein size and wall thickness provide the realistic feel and appearance of a newborn
• Simulated, translucent skin allows visualization of the underlying blue veins
• Veins may be accessed repeatedly with a small gauge needle
Nita Newborn™ includes a flexible body, blue veins made of latex-free Dermalike™, translucent “skins” on the head, R and L arms and L leg, fluid bag with attached tubing, simulated blood, diaper, and soft carrying case.
