Obstetric Solution
SimMom and MamaBirthie

Go to section

Improve the quality of obstetric care

SimMom and MamaBirthie combined provides an impactful simulation toolkit, which can be used at different stages of the Circle of Learning to support a complete learning experience.

One of the most important objectives during labor and delivery is recognizing the potential risks to both the mother and baby. By building a well-trained team, confident in their abilities to manage adverse events whilst communicating with respect to the mother, you ensure better outcomes for both patients.

Skills training at hand when learning procedures by heart

MamaBirthie's easy set-up is ideal for repeated practice. Allow your students to get hands-on experience with standard procedures from day one.

  • Practice vaginal and abdominal examinations
  • Use the cervical inserts for dilatation and effacement assessment, as well as identifying positioning
  • Palpate the baby's position using anatomical landmarks
  • Effectively teach complex births such as vacuum-assisted delivery, breech and shoulder dystocia
  • Gain tactile feedback from BabyBirthie’s palpable fontanelles

Make errors now, to avoid them in the future

No one likes to make mistakes, yet it’s an important part of training. With this obstetric solution, teams can train for decision-making in emergency settings and the ability to work under pressure in a safe environment.

With immediate feedback from either simulator or role-play, instructors can pinpoint areas of improvement, teach precise behaviors for real-life emergency procedures, and instill confidence over time.

USB 3.0 patch for ELO Monitor (74mb)

With this patch it is possible to communicate between the ELO monitor and laptops via a USB 3.0 port. The patch also supports newer versions of the ELO monitor and is compatible with Windows 7 software. The patch addresses the following patient simulator versions (only): SimMom 1.0.0 SimBaby 1.6 SimMan 3.5 SimNewB 1.4 SimNewB for VS2 2.0.1.77 ALS Sim Adv 1.1 ALS Sim Adv for VS2 2.0.0.122 SimJunior 1.0.2 SimJunior for VS2 2.0.0.56 SimMan3G 2.3.4 Notice that you have to re-apply the patch if you install additional patient simulators on your computer. Future versions of the simulators will contain the new ELO driver and do not need the patch. However, if you combine a future version with any of the versions listed above, the patch is mandatory. PLEASE NOTE: You must also use the latest version of the Laerdal Debrief Viewer
