    Modifying Simman to Bleed for obstetric scenarios

    Dear all,

     please find below some ideas on how to modify simman to bleed for obstetric scenarios such as PPH etc.

    1. Take the female genitalia supplied with your Laerdal SimMan, 1 i.v giving set , 1ltr saline and ,1 Pressure Bag.

    2.Taking a pair of Scissors make a 1cm incision into the end of the vaginal rubber section at the rear of the female genitalia.

    3. Take an ordinary I.V giving set.

    4. Insert the tip of the giving set into the slit made previously and continue to feed the tubing until it is visable at the front vaginal opening.

    5. Note tip of giving set barely visable at vaginal opening.

    6. Take 1ltr of saline and color with a synthetic blood product (Dilution as appropriate).

    7. Place fluid bag in pressure bag and secure, insert giving set and prime. When inflated to around 350mmhg the pressure bag will facilitate vaginal bleeding for up to 20 mins using a moderate flow rate.

    I hope this helps

    Kind regards

    Hi Neal,

    This is great, I have been having a go at some obstetric emergencies and will be including this in future!

    Any other tips for modifications would be very gratefully received

    Hi Laura,


    Thanks for the support, I have around four adaptions availablke to simman on my site but they are contributed by others and wiothout their permission I cannot post them here. Guilluame if you are reading this perhaps you could post your adaptions on here also.
