    NRP Scenarios Upgrade- SimNewB Advanced Customers!

    Neonatal Resuscitation Scenarios for SimNewB Upgrade


    The set of 11 Neonatal Resuscitation Scenarios included with SimNewB is now available in an upgraded version. Customers can go online and download the upgraded scenarios. The upgrade is a result of customer feedback and will resolve some identified issues with the programming.


    Reason for the upgrade

    When running a scenario from the PC, the scenario did not follow the intended pathway as indicated in the written materials. At the end of the scenario the preset patient state level was erroneously jumping from level 1 to 3, rather than level 1 to 2 which is the ‘correct’ progression and is reflected in the learning material. The issue was attributed to an error in a handler which was also used by other scenarios. Therefore the decision was made to upgrade all scenarios.


    What is affected by the upgrade?

    The upgrade affects only the pre-programmed scenario file, not the written material.


    The upgrade does not affect customers who use only the hand-held remote to run scenarios (customers only using the hand held remote manually adjust the patient state level up or down according to the written material, there is no programming in use). Only customers who run the scenarios from the PC should download the upgraded scenarios.


    The upgraded scenarios will replace the ‘old’ version in the customer’s default scenario file. It will not affect any scenarios that the customer has edited, edited scenarios will remain unchanged.


    To perform the upgrade, existing customers will need to uninstall their Neonatal Resuscitation scenarios, and then install the upgraded scenarios. 


    How to access the upgraded scenarios

    Two files will be available at for customers. These are:

    1. The Instructions to customers to perform the upgrade
    2. The Zip folder including the upgraded scenarios.

    If you have further question, please contact technical support.
