    SimNewB Cyanosis Panels

    Is anyone else having problems with their cyanosis panels failing repeatedly?  I'm about to call - again- for 2 new panels as both of mine are out again. Just wondering if it's a problem with my NewBs - or me- or if it's a systemic problem?

    I think this is a systemic issue.  I have gone through at least five of these in the last couple of years for our two NewBies.

    I find that I go through about one pad a year. The issue i was notcicing was that when the students are intubating they are cutting the inner corner of the pad with the blade causing a break in the wires. What I ended up doing to fix that is putting a little piece of tape in the corners so the blade won't cut it as much. You may want to try that to help save the pad's life.
