Meet Newborn Anne & friends: GLiNTECH’s contribution to the Sydney Children’s Hospital
Each year GLiNTECH donate profits to purchase technology for the Sydney Children's Hospital. We have a long running partnership with the hospital’s Foundation and are able to assist them with special requests from departments that do not normally receive direct funding for a technology ‘wish list’.
In this current financial year, GLiNTECH are committed to purchasing multiple Simulated Training Manikins for the hospital’s cutting-edge Simulation Training Centre which uses advanced technology to ensure their medical teams continue to deliver the best possible care to children of all ages. These life-like mannequins come in different sizes to act just like a real child would in life-threatening medical situations – moving, screaming or crying – so that the doctors, nurses and allied health staff can test skills and systems in a situation that closely mirrors a real-life scenario.
Newborn Anne has and provides the following:
Realistic airway designed for training in all aspects of newborn airway management, including the use of Positive-Pressure Airway devices, and the placement of ET Tubes and LMA’s.
Realistic chest rise with manual ventilations
The torso includes functionality to relieve a tension pneumothorax via needle decompression.
An umbilicus with a manually generated pulse can be assessed, cut and catheterized for IV access.
IO access in left and right lower leg, tibial tuberosity and medial malleolus
We thank the Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation team for allowing us to make a difference with technology each year.
