MIAMI, April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaumard(R) Scientific Company (www.gaumard.com) today announced it will feature the Victoria(TM) birthing simulator at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists 2015 Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting, May 2-6, in San Francisco.
Gaumard designed Victoria to address all of the needs of medical educators who can utilize the simulator's extensive birthing scenarios with actual hospital equipment, resulting in an exceptionally realistic simulation experience. Obstetricians, gynecologists, nurses and other meeting attendees will be able to demo Victoria's patented, precision delivery and birthing mechanism that births a life-like, full-term baby with advanced monitoring capabilities. Each simulated delivery can be programed to mimic any situation from a normal vaginal birth to a C-section while educators can alter the scenarios in real-time giving them limitless opportunities to enhance the learning experience. Complicated birthing scenarios such as breech presentation, shoulder dystocia, maternal bleeding or umbilical cord prolapse can also be replicated with precision.
John Eggert, Gaumard's executive vice president, said: "Victoria has been enthusiastically received by health care educators across the United States who recognize it as the most advanced maternal-fetal simulator available today. The ACOG meeting is a great opportunity for those who have not yet seen Victoria to become familiar with this innovative simulator, the only one in the industry that offers a wireless-tetherless experience that enables realistic movement of Victoria across clinical care locations."
Other products to be displayed by Gaumard at the ACOG meeting include the NOELLE® S575.100 Tetherless Maternal and Neonatal Birthing Simulator; the ZOE® S504.100 Gynecologic Simulator; the S230.40 Breast Palpation Simulator for Clinical Teaching; the S230.52 Breast Phantom Simulator; and the S607 Hysteroscopy Simulator.
Editor's Note: Gaumard's simulators will be on display at booth No. 923 at the ACOG meeting.
