MIAMI, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaumard (R) Scientific Company today provided an update on recent installations of the Victoria (TM) birthing simulator at U.S. health care educational institutions. Medical educators receiving the Victoria birthing simulator learn to use the extensive birthing scenarios and procedures Victoria offers with actual hospital equipment during their initial and follow-up trainings.
The latest installation sites include Women's Hospital of University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
John Eggert, Gaumard's executive vice president, said, "The use of our Victoria birthing simulator can have a large impact on the reduction of medical errors made by health care professionals. Victoria is the most innovative birthing simulator available today with a wireless-tetherless experience that allows health care practitioners to train on-site – allowing for a realistic transition of Victoria along the entire continuum of care from the ambulance to the labor and delivery room. The realism afforded by Victoria is vital to most accurately simulating birth and birthing complications."
A member of the NOELLE® family of maternal and neonatal care simulators, Victoria has a patented, precision life-like delivery and birthing mechanism that births a life-like, full-term baby with sophisticated monitoring capabilities. Gaumard's complete Victoria system includes comprehensive clinical scenarios, including shoulder dystocia and postpartum hemorrhage. With articulating endoskeletons and silky smooth elastomeric skin, Victoria is the most realistic, fully tetherless and wireless maternal/fetal simulator for use in actual point of care training.
