Our pediatric clinical skills training model is ideal for anesthetists, nurses & other pediatric emergency medical professionals practicing Directly Observed Practical Skills (DOPS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and critical emergency medicine including infant airway management and more.
TruBaby X is incredibly lifelike with the appearance, weight, size and movement of a 5-month-old infant.
Incredible realism and anatomically correct details
We are loyal to the AirSim manikins because they are the most realistic models on the market…The manikins are well suited to our training, the incredible realism and anatomically correct details provide our pediatric anesthesiology and critical care learners an experience similar to a real clinical scenario… The product range is ever expanding and TruCorp continue to produce airway trainers that reflect the real world challenges we face.
Incredibly helpful training our neonatology fellows
The Pierre Robin manikin has been incredibly helpful in training our neonatology fellows how to manage a difficult airway. All of our fellows have benefited greatly from learning to place oral airways, laryngeal mask airways, and endotracheal tubes in this manikin. The anatomy is quite realistic and I have yet to find a better difficult airway training manikin for neonatology.

CPR techniques differ depending on the age of the recipient. The TruBaby X System allows realistic infant CPR training to improve practitioner confidence and patient safety featuring:
Realistic rib structure with xiphoid process and sternum
Full recommended depth of 1.5 inches can be achieved with full chest recoil
Chest structure has lifelike recoil during compressions, accurate representation of rise and fall during ventilation
Realistic look and feel of tissues representing skin, fat and muscle
Though infants are far smaller than adults, performing high quality chest compressions during CPR is equally important. TruBaby X’s lifelike responsiveness to compressions and ventilation allows for realistic practice to improve patient outcomes. Like all our simulation manikins, this model is built to withstand repeated use in a busy training environment.
Pediatric Peripheral Venous Cannulation
Peripheral IV (intravenous) catheters can be inserted into peripheral veins to administer treatments, transfusions or IV fluids. TruBaby X facilitates peripheral venous cannulation practice in the arm, hand, or foot.
Peripheral venous cannulation (Hand and Arm)
Contains the dorsal venous arch, cephalic and basilic veins allowing needle cannulation at various locations.
Activation of the normal venous blood flow mode allows fluids to be withdrawn and administered providing realistic blood flashback.
The pediatric IV arm trainer facilitates 300+ needle penetrations using a size 21g needle.
Peripheral venous cannulation (Foot)
Contains the Dorsal venous arch, great and lesser saphenous veins allowing needle cannulation at various locations.
Activation of the normal venous blood flow mode allows fluids to be withdrawn and administered providing realistic blood flashback.
The foot facilitates 300+ needle penetrations using a size 21g needle.
Infant blood vessels are much smaller than in adults and are not well supported by the surrounding soft tissue. The TruBaby X skills trainer has been developed to provide lifelike training to improve patient safety and outcomes. It's compatible with all ultrasound machines including point-of-care ultrasound devices, and can be used in prehospital ultrasound training courses for effective practice in ultrasound-guided pediatric IV cannulation.
Infant Lumbar Puncture
Lumbar puncture acquires a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for testing to confirm or exclude diagnosis of infection (bacterial, viral or fungal).
Tension pneumothorax results when alveoli (air sacs in lungs) rupture and leak air into the pleural space (between lung and chest wall).
TruBaby allows training in needle thoracentesis at the 2nd & 5th intercostal spaces and features:
Realistic rib structures including xiphoid process and clavicle
Palpable landmarks in the 2nd intercoastal space mid clavicular line and the 5th intercostal space mid auxiallary line
Easily interchangeable inserts
Each needle decompression insert facilitates 150+ needle penetrations using a 18g needle
Chest Drain (Air Only)
Palpable landmarks in the 5th intercostal space mid auxiliary line.
Facilitates either the Seldinger chest drain insertion technique or the needle thoracentesis approach for the treatment of a pneumothorax.
Each chest drain insert facilitates single use via the Seldinger approach with a size 8F chest tube.
Alternatively, each chest drain insert can facilitate 150+ needle penetrations using a 18G Needle.
Intraosseous infusion (IO) is making an injection directly into bone marrow to create a non-collapsible point of entry for the systemic venous system. In this way fluids and/or medication can be delivered even when intravenous access is not possible. Blood samples can also be collected this way.
The proximal tibia is the preferred site for intraosseous infusion in infants. TruBaby X allows training in IO tibia featuring:
Features the tibial tuberosity and patella anatomy which facilitates for the identification of the proximal tibia intraosseous needle insertion site.
Realistic resistance when penetrating the medullary cavity.
Each IO insert is delivered with pre-filled fluid and facilitates single use with a 18G IO needle.
A catheter may be used to obtain a sterile urine specimen to diagnose infection in the bladder or kidneys. Some infants may need a urinary catheter because of low urine output, so nursing and medical staff can determine how much fluid is needed.
Realistic infant anatomy to practice and learn the techniques of catheterization
A 8F catheter can be inserted into the urethra and into the bladder.
Upon successful entry fluid will flow from the catheter.
Option for interchangeable male and female genitalia
Infant crisis manikin for resuscitation training & more
TruBaby X is ideal for training in a range of lifesaving techniques for infants. Our advanced infant crisis manikin facilitates training in CPR, airway management, needle decompression of a pneumothorax, chest drain insertion, IV cannulation, ultrasound-guided PICC line insertion, IO tibia, urethral catheterization and more. This model is also a cost-effective pediatric nursing manikin. Our TruMonitor app can be used alongside the infant crisis manikin to integrate clinical decision-making into your training.
