A member of the NOELLE® family of maternal and neonatal care simulators, Victoria has a patented, precision life-like delivery and birthing mechanism that births a life-like, full-term baby with sophisticated monitoring capabilities. Gaumard's complete Victoria system includes comprehensive clinical scenarios, including shoulder dystocia and postpartum hemorrhage. With articulating endoskeletons and silky smooth elastomeric skin, Victoria is the most realistic, fully tetherless and wireless maternal/fetal simulator for use in actual point of care training.
John Eggert, Gaumard's executive vice president, said: "Victoria will be the featured product at our large-scale display and demonstration of Gaumard products at IMSH 2015 that begins Sunday. We invite new and current customers to see Victoria in action at the meeting as well as to speak with many of the current users. Our launch is continuing at a rapid pace as we install Victoria and provide on-site training to customers. We expect the demand for Victoria to increase in 2015 as more health care educators become familiar with the technology."
IMSH, or the International Meeting for Simulation in Health Care, is set for Jan. 10-14, 2015, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. More than 2,000 simulation professionals from around the globe are expected to attend IMSH, which is known as the industry's premier educational and networking event. Gaumard will demonstrate Victoria and its extensive line-up of patient simulators at booth No. 513.
