NG Tube Pediatric

Become a proficient in NG Tube Pediatric with Our IM Manikin Simulator

An NG Tube Pediatric Trainer Manikin is a medical training device designed specifically for healthcare professionals, students, and trainees to practice and develop the skills necessary for inserting a nasogastric (NG) tube in pediatric patients. NG tube insertion is a common medical procedure used to deliver nutrients, medications, or remove stomach contents from the stomach and upper gastrointestinal tract in infants and children. The pediatric trainer manikin is specially designed to simulate the anatomical and physiological aspects of a pediatric patient to provide a realistic training experience.The NG Tube Pediatric Trainer Manikin allows trainees to build confidence, develop proficiency, and improve their understanding of the procedure, all in a controlled and realistic training environment, before performing it on actual pediatric patients.

Practicing NG tube insertion in a pediatric patient is important for healthcare professionals, particularly those working in pediatric medicine, neonatology, and pediatric critical care.

  • Pediatric Size and Anatomy: The manikin is sized and shaped to resemble a pediatric patient, making it suitable for practicing NG tube insertion in infants and children.

  • Realistic Oral and Nasal Cavities: The trainer typically includes anatomically accurate oral and nasal passages to simulate the path that the NG tube follows during insertion.

  • Nasal Passage Realism: Realistic nasal passages with turbinate structures to provide tactile and visual feedback during NG tube placement through the nose.

  • Nasogastric Tube Insertion: Trainees practice the insertion of an NG tube through the nostril, advancing it into the esophagus and ultimately positioning it correctly in the stomach.

  • Confirmation of Correct Placement: Users can confirm proper tube placement through auscultation (listening for air entry into the stomach), aspiration (checking for stomach contents), and visualization (observing the tube's position).

  • Resistance and Realistic Feedback: The manikin offers resistance and feedback similar to that encountered during a real NG tube insertion, including the sensation of the tube moving through the nasal passages and into the stomach.

  • Comes with mobile app companion on Android and iOS
