Cervical Dilatation & Effacement Module (CD&E) - PROMPT Flex (Dark Skin Tone)
Part of the PROMPT Flex range, the Cervical Dilatation & Effacement Module allows for training in the assessment and management of both the latent, and active, early stages of labor.
This model can be used to create a wide variety of birthing scenarios to identify:
- Position/tilt of the cervix
- Consistency of the cervix
- Cervical effacement
- Cervical dilation – early/latent phase, active phase and transition phase
- Fetal station
- Normal and abnormal foetal presentation
- Moulding of the skull bones
- Caput formation
- Presence of membrane and amniotic fluid
This cervical dilation module can be purchased as an add-on to the Standard or Advanced PROMPT Flex simulators, and allows for the assessment of labor progression, likelihood of vaginal delivery, and suitability for induction.
Can the foetal orientation be changed on the cervical dilation model?
Yes, using the presenting pieces, the fetal station, orientation and tilt can be changed for different training scenarios. With the simple to use system, these can all be changed without removal of the head from the simulator.
Are you able to practice artificial membrane rupture with the module?
You are, the Cervical Dilatation & Effacement Module comes with 25 membrane sheets that can be secured over the Flexed or Deflexed Head. Using the syringe and tube included, warm water can be injected through the head piece to replicate the amniotic fluid. This can then be artificially ruptured using an amniotic hook or finger cot.
Why does the Cervical Dilation & Effacement module come with a different perineum to the PROMPT Flex?
This perineum has been specifically designed for use with this simulator. The vaginal opening is smaller and more durable than the birthing perineum, improving the realism when assessing the early progress of labour.
