MIAMIJan. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- When Super Tory gasps for breath, it's easy to treat the world's most advanced neonatal patient simulator as if he were a real newborn in respiratory distress.

 

The new manikin's computer-controlled dynamically-compliant lungs are so realistic that they accurately respond to real mechanical ventilation.  

 

At the touch of a button, Super Tory's respiratory system goes into acute distress and his entire body reacts. He cries, frowns and grows pale. There's no mistaking that Super Tory is very sick – and that every member of the respiratory care team will need to work together to revive him.

 

"Every specialist gets to participate in Super Tory's treatment," says John Eggert, executive vice president of Gaumard Scientific Company, which unveils Super Tory today at the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare in Orlando.

 

Respiratory therapists, for example, can stabilize Super Tory with ACV, SIMV, CPAP, PCV, PSV or NIPPV, using real equipment in the NICU.
