HealthCare Simulation South Carolina (HCSSC) is pleased to announce that five obstetric sets programmed for LLEAP and compatible with SimMom Automatic Delivery Module (ADM) are now available for purchase on Laerdal's SimStore. Obstetrics Vaginal Delivery for the Delivering Practitioner (full and sampler sets), Shoulder Dystocia for Delivering Practitioners, Obstetric Emergencies for Hospital Nursing, and Obstetric Care for Nursing Students are designed for delivering practitioners, hospital nurses, and nursing students. These sets cover delivery, labor assessment, and the most common obstetric emergencies. The checklists developed for each set have been derived from mainstream obstetric textbooks and literature.
SimMom ADM scenarios can run on new and existing Laerdal SimMom simulators using LLEAP in either automatic or manual delivery. All of our SimMom ADM sets feature:
- Enhanced user interface
- Objective-based debriefing with graded score and percentage of correct completed steps
- Checklists derived from mainstream Obstetric textbooks and literature
- Participant feedback and embedded multimedia
- Complete learning units, many featuring skill stations
The creation of SimMom ADM stemmed from the need to enhance SimMom manual delivery simulations and eliminate operating costs. Previously, performing SimMom deliveries manually required two facilitators - one to lead the simulation as an instructor, and an additional facilitator to manually deliver the baby. This hindrance inspired Drs. Simmons and Schaefer to begin testing automatic birthing mechanisms in the their own garage with PVC piping, eventually leading to further collaboration with Laerdal Medical. With it's humble (yet promising) beginnings, HCSSC is proud to see SimMom ADM and our featured scenarios available on the SimStore. Now, with SimMom ADM, each HCSSC programmed scenario can be run with a single facilitator, cutting costs and increasing efficiency through standardization.
