Abstract The purpose of this review is to explore low-cost options for simulation and training in neonatology. Numerous cost-effective options exist for simulation and training in neonatology. Lower cost options are available for teaching clinical skills and procedural training in neonatal intubation, chest tube insertion, and pericardiocentesis, among others. Cost-effective, low-cost options for simulation-based education can be developed and shared in order to optimize the neonatal simulation training experience.

Summary Background Competency rates in neonatal intubation among pediatric residents are low and currently not meeting ACGME/AAP standards. Aims The aim of this study was to compare standard bedside teaching of neonatal endotracheal intubation to a computer module, as well as introduce residents to the emerging technology of videolaryngoscopy. Methods The study population consisted of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Pediatric interns/residents and PGY-1 Anesthesia in...

Background Over 80% of deliveries in Sudan occur in isolated villages, attended by village midwives (VMWs). Upgrading newborn resuscitation skills with the Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) programme could improve newborn survival rates. Objective To describe the competencies in newborn resuscitation of selected VMWs pre-HBB and post-HBB training. Methods In a prospective intervention study, the VMWs’ performances in the HBB Objective Structured Clinical Examination B simulated scenario (manikin requ...

Abstract Objectives Medical students and residents in training have limited opportunities to develop pediatric endoscopy skills and would benefit from a realistic simulation model. We sought to develop such a model for flexible endoscopy using fresh head and neck tissue from young sheep. Methods Tissue was collected from pre-pubescent sheep (n = 5; mean age: 4 months; mean mass: 28 kg) following humane euthanasia at the end of an in vivo protocol. No live animals were used in this study. The hea...

Background Knowledge acquisition and skill maintenance are important in learning neonatal resuscitation. Traditionally this is taught by using low fidelity mannequins. Technological advancement enabled a move towards high fidelity mannequins. In a low resources setting, it is incumbent to ensure reasonable cost benefit ratio before investing in technology.

Objectives Helping Babies Breathe is an evidence-based curriculum designed to teach basic neonatal resuscitation in low-resource countries. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the acquisition of knowledge and skills following this training and correlation of learner characteristics to performance in a Spanish-speaking setting.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Simulation-based skill trainings are common; however, optimal instructional designs that improve outcomes are not well specified. We explored the impact of just-in-time and just-in-place training (JIPT) on interns’ infant lumbar puncture (LP) success. METHODS: This prospective study enrolled pediatric and emergency medicine interns from 2009 to 2012 at 34 centers. Two distinct instructional design strategies were compared. Cohort A (2009–2010) completed simulation-based...
Unquestionably, neonatal intubation is a high-stakes procedure that is performed under stressful, highly emotional circumstances. Rates for successful neonatal intubations by medical residents are low, varying from 20% to 69% depending on location and experience. For example, in 2003, one group reported successful intubation rates of 50% to 62% for pediatric house officers, with 35% never being successful, and none being able to consistently intubate a neonate on the first or second attempt more...

The neonatal resuscitation program (NRP) has been developed to educate physicians and other health care providers about newborn resuscitation and has been shown to improve neonatal resuscitation skills. Simulation-based training is recommended as an effective modality for instructing neonatal resuscitation and both low and high-fidelity manikin simulators are used. There is limited research that has compared the effect of low and high-fidelity manikin simulators for NRP learning outcomes, and mo...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Competence in the chest tube insertion procedure is vital for practitioners who take care of critically ill infants. The use of animals for training is discouraged, and there are no realistic simulation models available for the neonatal chest tube insertion procedure. The objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness of teaching the chest tube insertion procedure by using an easily constructed, nonanimal simulation model. METHODS: An inexpensive infant chest t...

Curriculum leaders in medical education responded to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 by converting in-person formal learning (lectures, small groups, etc ) to on-line formats, removing medical students from clinical environments, creating interim learning opportunities to replace in-person clinical learning, developing plans to keep learners safe for their eventual return to clinical environments, and restructuring schedules In this article, we describe and discuss five strategic implications of t...

Simulation-based educational methods are recognized as an established component of medical training for medical students, residents, and fellows; have been shown to be low-cost and cost-effective; and most recently have been linked to convincingly improved training outcomes for high-risk, low-frequency obstetrical emergencies. This chapter offers an overview of educational theory supporting simulation-based education (SBE) methods.
: Since the inception of organized neonatal transport in the 1940s, advances in clinical care and technology have made the neonatal intensive care unit even more mobile in terms of care delivery. There currently exists an emphasis on quality metrics and simulation-based training for transport team members to achieve high levels of individual and team competence. Emerging therapies such as active cooling for neuroprotective hypothermia and high-frequency ventilation provide evidence-based care in...
