Life/form® Micro-Preemie Simulator – Light Skin

Manikin simulating a 25-week neonate for simulation training in the care and handling techniques for infants requiring multiple medical interventions at the limits of viability

Delivery of an ELBW (extremely low birth weight) infant remains to be an extreme medical emergency, requiring specialized techniques that can be trained with this outstanding simulator. The baby can be ventilated and will accept a functional ET tube, NG tube, umbilical catheter, and IV line, as well as a non-functional chest tube and stomas.

  • Simulates a 25-week neonate—the smallest, most realistically proportioned pre-term infant available
  • Entirely flexible and offers training opportunities for a number of commonly performed procedures
  • Extraordinary realism is achieved with the preemie’s pose and lack of muscle tone.
  • Invaluable for simulation training in the care and handling techniques for infants requiring multiple medical interventions at the limits of viability
  • Perfect for NICU, emergency medical response teams, flight medics, mock code scenarios, nursing schools, medical schools, hospitals, and family education
  • Simple to use for simulation, requires no specialized equipment, and is compact and highly mobile
  • Use for meeting objectives of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program’s course curriculum
