Is the Standard PROMPT birthing simulator suitable to demonstrate different birthing scenarios?
Yes, with this birthing trainer you can demonstrate and practice normal and breech birth, OVD (Operative Vaginal Delivery) with inclusion of forceps and vacuum devices, and shoulder dystocia. You can also add additional modules for procedures such as, cesarean section, cervical cerclage, and postpartum hemorrhage.
Can you perform common procedures with the Standard PROMPT Flex?
Yes, as well as a normal vaginal birth, the PROMPT can be used to perform extended breech births, instrumental births and shoulder dystocia.
Does this version of the birthing simulator allow for force monitoring?
The standard birthing mother doesn’t currently offer force monitoring. If you’re interested in this feature take a look at the Advanced PROMPT Flex Birthing Simulator which has wifi enabled force monitoring.
What does this childbirth simulator offer to medical students?
As part of a birth simulation, trainees will get hands-on experience with our realistic labor simulator. Simulated births offer the chance to develop their communication and teamwork skills, as well as practice fundamental skills required during labour.
Will using the PROMPT Flex Birthing Simulator during training improve neonatal outcomes?
A retrospective study undertaken by Southmead Hospital, UK, showed that after the introduction of simulation training there was improvement seen in the management and outcomes of births complicated by shoulder dystocia.
