Can the foetal orientation be changed on the cervical dilation model?
Yes, using the presenting pieces, the fetal station, orientation and tilt can be changed for different training scenarios. With the simple to use system, these can all be changed without removal of the head from the simulator.
Are you able to practice artificial membrane rupture with the module?
You are, the Cervical Dilatation & Effacement Module comes with 25 membrane sheets that can be secured over the Flexed or Deflexed Head. Using the syringe and tube included, warm water can be injected through the head piece to replicate the amniotic fluid. This can then be artificially ruptured using an amniotic hook or finger cot.
Why does the Cervical Dilation & Effacement module come with a different perineum to the PROMPT Flex?
This perineum has been specifically designed for use with this simulator. The vaginal opening is smaller and more durable than the birthing perineum, improving the realism when assessing the early progress of labour.
