Advanced training in neonatal resuscitation

SimNewB is a newborn tetherless simulator co-created with the American Academy of Pediatrics, designed to help improve neonatal resuscitation and to meet the specific learning objectives of neonatal resuscitation protocols.

Focusing on the first 10 minutes of life, SimNewB provides realistic training for critical interventions such as lung recruitment maneuvers and advanced airway management.

Partnering to improve neonatal outcomes

Developed in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, SimNewB neonatal simulator will allow for new opportunities to integrate the latest technologies into neonatal training programs.

Pairing SimNewB and educational content developed and validated by organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics allows learners to master the skills needed to care for neonatal patients and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
