Gaumard Newborn Hal
"Baby Hal" is a high fidelity newborn manufactured by Gaumard. He or she is an untethered
manikin who can be left in the simulated nursery, or go to class for demonstration.
Baby Hal can simulate many newborn experiences, with a functioning umbilical cord,
lung sounds, heart sounds, seizures and a loud cry. Scenarios with Newborn Hal are
done in both junior and senior year, for pediatric then mother/baby courses. Seniors
have the option of completing the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), practicing
with the manikin.
Nursing Anne Manikin
“Nursing Anne” is the first female manikin in the Nursing Interventions Lab.
Anne makes heart, lung and bowel sounds, which can be altered to represent different
physical conditions the students are learning to assess. Using Nursing Anne, students
learn to conduct breast exams, start an IV or draw blood from her “veins,” practice
giving injections or check a carotid pulse. Nursing Anne has an adolescent child
with all of her features, who also resides in the Nursing Intervention Laboratory.
