US-based Gaumard Scientific is set to introduce an advanced newborn patient simulator, Newborn Tory S2210, at the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) 2015 Convention that will be held from 13 to 17 June in Long Beach, California.


The Newborn Tory allows health care professionals to easily administer and monitor simulated care as they transition from the delivery room to the operating room, the nursery or the NICU.

Gaumard Scientific executive vice-president John Eggert said: "We are happy to introduce healthcare providers to the most advanced and realistic newborn simulator available.

"Tory was built on our platform developed with Victoria that includes soft feeling skin, realistic covered joints and accurate airway anatomy, all of which suspend disbelief and allow for true-to-life training experiences."

Tory integrates with Gaumard’s Victoria Birthing Simulator through a wireless link, enabling healthcare providers to first tend to labor and delivery and then stabilize or treat the newborn.

Newborn Tory features programmable vital signs that allow for APGAR and other critical assessments and is compatible with real ECGs and other hospital equipment.

Its other features include tetherless mobility with wireless controls and soft, smooth, and realistic outer skin that fully covers a realistically articulating endoskeleton.

In addition, it has realistic airway anatomy and CPR training features.
