MIAMI, June 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaumard (R) Scientific Company today announced that it will launch Newborn Tory (TM) S2210, the industry's most advanced, life-like newborn patient simulator, at the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) 2015 Convention, June 13-17, in Long Beach, Calif.
Fully tetherless and wireless, Newborn Tory enables 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, while training for a large number of programmable scenarios. Tory integrates seamlessly with Gaumard's Victoria™ Birthing Simulator via a wireless link, allowing healthcare providers to first tend to labor and delivery and then stabilize or treat the newborn. Newborn Tory's features include:
- Lifelike appearance, weight and size
- Soft, smooth, and realistic outer skin that fully covers a realistically articulating endoskeleton
- Tetherless mobility with wireless controls
- Realistic airway anatomy and CPR training features
- Compatibility with real ECGs and other hospital equipment
- Programmable vital signs that allow for APGAR and other critical assessments
Professor Henry Henao, Director of the Simulation Teaching and Research Center (the STAR Center) at the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Florida International University, said, "I have had the opportunity to spend some time with Newborn Tory. The look, feel, and functionality of TORY are a marked improvement in achieving a higher level of fidelity or realism by a simulator. Tory represents cutting edge design and engineering for simulation education. This contributes to the overall realism of the simulation environment and allows simulation educators to provide a more immersive experience."
John Eggert, executive vice president of Gaumard, said, "Newborn Tory is the latest addition to our family of simulators. 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."
Gaumard will demonstrate Newborn Tory, Victoria and other patient simulators at Booth No. 524 at the AWHONN 2015 Convention.
