Life/form® Birthing Station Simulator has been designed for demonstrating and practicing palpating the internal birthing canal. The simulator clearly demonstrates the relationship between the fetal head and the ischial spines of the pelvic bone of the mother during the birthing process. The realism of this simulator will help students bridge the gap from classroom to bedside with ease and comfort.
This simulator is designed to feature the ischial spines which are of great obstetrical importance. The line drawn between the ischial spines normally represents the shortest diameter of the pelvic cavity. The ischial spines can be easily felt during a vaginal exam, and will serve as valuable landmarks in determining the level to which the presenting fetus has descended into the pelvis.
The Birthing Station Simulator features a fetal head which will lock in any of the three lock stations. Minus Two Station shows the position of the fetal head when it lies above the ischial spines. Zero Station shows the fetal head directly between the ischial spines. Plus Three Station shows the fetal head below the ischial spines ready to enter into the birthing canal.
The Life/form Birthing Station Simulator includes teaching guide and hard carry case. Five-year warranty. Size: 23" x 14" x 7".
