Can I use our existing PROMPT Baby model with this assisted vaginal birth simulator?
Yes, to ensure you get the best value for money, we have designed this module to work with your existing PROMPT suite of products.
Using the baby on its own, you’re able to perform a forceps delivery, a breech delivery with Pipers forceps, and a BD Odon Device™ assisted delivery.
For a ventouse delivery you will need to add the Baby Mask to your PROMPT Baby. This allows the Kiwi™ cup (or similar device) to successfully attached itself to the softer silicone before birthing the baby.
Do we have to use the foam inserts in the model when running practical sessions?
Yes, the inserts are designed to ensure the model gives accurate resistance during procedures.
The back piece holds the baby at the right angles, while the additional smaller foam inserts are tucked into the side of the uterus and add resistance, as well as holding the forceps in place during the initial positioning.
How many people are required to successfully perform procedures on this model?
When attached to the PROMPT Flex base and securely fastened to a work bench, a single trainee can perform a range of birthing scenarios. If performing a rotational forceps delivery, an additional person would be required to assist in rotating the baby, from behind the trainer.
What types of instruments can be used with the AVB trainer?
This trainer supports a full range of delivery instruments, including:
- Simpson forceps
- Elliot forceps
- Kielland forceps
- Piper forceps
- Bailey-Williamson forceps
- Tucker-McLane forceps
- Kiwi™ cup
- BD Odon Device™
