WAPPINGERS FALLS, N.Y., June 13, 2018 /CNW/ -- Nurses make up the majority of those working in healthcare, and their influence on patient safety and outcomes is undeniable. Laerdal Medical is proud to support nurses around the world in their efforts to train for continuously improved performance. Today, the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) hosts its first conference outside of the United States in Toronto, Canada, and Laerdal will be there.
Laerdal will be showcasing new products developed in partnerships with the National League for Nursing (NLN), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and IngMar Medical.
To support organizations in pursuit of high-quality simulation, Laerdal and the NLN developed the Simulation Educational Solutions for Nursing (SESN) program. SESN offers a comprehensive assessment of an organization's current nursing program, a customized implementation plan for success, and "pulse checks" to ensure lasting, effective change.
In alliance with the AAP, Laerdal Medical developed SimNewB®, a neonatal simulator designed to meet the Newborn Resuscitation Program (NRP) learning objectives and help improve neonatal patient outcomes. Benefits of SimNewB include:
Improved ventilation quality and airway management skills
Post-resuscitation assessment and care
Medication administration and management through umbilical access and intraosseous infusion
Ideal for in-situ team training
Laerdal collaborated with IngMar Medical to create the ASL 5000™Lung Solution for the SimMan® platform. This solution allows you to integrate the world's premier breathing simulator, the ASL 5000, with SimMan 3G, SimMan Essential, and SimMan 3G Trauma for high-fidelity simulations that allow the ability to replicate:
Complex respiratory disease states with sophisticated control of resistance and compliance
A patient who is breathing spontaneously while being ventilated
Each of the aforementioned products will be featured at the INACSL conference, in addition to other new Laerdal nursing solutions.
Laerdal Medical is dedicated to the mission of helping save lives through the advancement of simulation-based training in the fields of resuscitation, patient care, and emergency care training. Laerdal products and programs are used by educational institutions, hospitals, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and military around the world. For more information, visit www.laerdal.com.
