REALISTIC AND RELIABLE CHILDBIRTH SIMULATION WITH NO DOWNTIME
The CAE Fidelis Lucina Maternal Fetal Simulator was developed for clinicians and interprofessional teams who manage normal deliveries as well as childbirth complications and obstetrical emergencies. The birthing simulator offers reliable, realistic training for childbirth maneuvers and emergency response when time is short and teamwork is essential.
Developed in partnership with leading maternal-fetal educators and biomedical engineers, Lucina is the only childbirth simulator with validated maternal-fetal physiology. The physiological modeling allows learners to monitor and manage both patients without instructor intervention.
HANDS-ON PRACTICE OF NORMAL DELIVERIES WHEN REAL CLINICAL TIME IS LIMITED
Today, practice time in real clinical settings is limited and can be risky. With Lucina, learners gain hands-on experience performing normal deliveries and pelvic exams to recognize cervical dilation, effacement, presentation, position and station. Following delivery, the simulator uses arterial and venous blood gas values to give one-minute and five-minute APGAR scores based on how well the learners managed the delivery.
Fidelis Lucina is the only simulator that comes with static cervices and a dynamic cervix to represent all stages of dilation, effacement and station
Fetus automatically descends and rotates quietly through the birth canal. Multiple birthing positions include lithotomy, sitting and all fours
Fetus is soft where is should be soft and firm where it should be firm with palpable landmarks, and supports simulated suctioning with an open mouth and nose.
Highly realistic placenta and umbilical cord can be positioned as prolapsed or nuchal
THE MOST COMPLETE TRAINING FOR MATERNAL CARDIAC AND RESPIRATORY ARREST
One in 20,000 deliveries are complicated by cardiac arrest due to hemorrhagic shock, eclampsia, amniotic fluid embolism, medical errors or other causes. When mother and fetus are in distress, time is of the essence, and a rapid, coordinated response is required. Lucina offers a better way to train medical teams for maternal emergencies
Advanced CPR metrics measure the consistency of compressions and ventilations as well as coronary and cerebral perfusion pressures. System detects hand placement, chest recoil and left lateral tilt.
Durable, flexible airway accommodates most airway management adjuncts including ET tube and LMA. Newly designed neck supports the sniffing position.
Respiratory system supports mechanical ventilation with realistic airway resistance and lung compliance
Versatility to simulate rare emergencies, including: supine hypotension, venous air embolism, maternal cardio-pulmonary arrest and anesthesia reaction
Fetal response is based upon effectiveness of resuscitation of mother
BETTER TRAINING FOR SHOULDER DYSTOCIA MANAGEMENT
Shoulder dystocia is one of the most stressful emergencies encountered by clinical teams. Potential outcomes include post-partum hemorrhage, perineal tears and in the baby, fetal brachial palsy. With the Fidelis Lucina birthing simulator, teams can prepare to respond quickly and effectively to shoulder dystocia by practicing a full protocol of childbirth maneuvers.
Presentation of the baby’s head and turtle sign help learners to quickly diagnose shoulder dystocia and ask the mother to stop pushing
The simulator’s pelvic tilt allows practice of the McRoberts maneuver. Her realistic pubic symphysis can be felt when applying suprapubic pressure.
Lateral neck flexion allows learner to lift head to deliver posterior arm
These maneuvers along with rotation of shoulder are automatically detected along with neck traction sensing for debrief
With integrated maternal-fetal physiology, the fetus responds automatically to maneuvers and delivers an APGAR score based on how well the learners managed the intervention.
GAIN HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE WITH BREECH DELIVERY AND BREECH POSITIONS
With fewer vaginal breech deliveries being performed worldwide, clinicians have less experience performing emergency breech deliveries. The Fidelis Lucina Maternal Fetal Simulator fetus was designed with better tactile realism for the identification of breech presentation and delivery.
Fetal hip articulation, palpable landmarks, and soft buttocks, limbs and abdomen provide greater realism from beginning to end of breech delivery scenario
Mechanical birthing mechanism with automatic descent and rotation allows a hands-off approach for breech delivery in both supine and all fours positions
EXTENSIVE RELIABILITY TESTING - 120,000 DELIVERIES WITHOUT FAILURE AND COUNTING
Is downtime costing your childbirth simulation program too much? The Lucina Maternal Fetal Simulator was designed for reliability and extensively tested.

COMING SOON! THE ADDED VALUE OF TWO PATIENTS IN ONE
The Lucina Maternal Fetal Simulator now offers the option to add a Female Patient Module with a non-pregnant abdomen and five Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEs). Use your Lucina simulator year-round as both an obstetrical patient and a normal female patient. Users can also create their own SCEs on the Müse system.
The five Female Patient Module SCEs are:
Chronic Heart Failure Exacerbation
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Sepsis with Hypotension
Brain Attack with Thrombolytic Therapy
Motor Vehicle Collision with Hypovolemic Shock
TEN SIMULATED CLINICAL EXPERIENCES (SCES) INCLUDED FOR CHILDBIRTH TRAINING
Operate Lucina with our latest version of the user-friendly Müse interface. The software includes ten evidence-based practice scenarios complete with patient history, documentation, learning objectives, facilitator’s notes for debriefing and more.
CAE Fidelis Lucina Maternal Fetal Simulator Simulated Clinical Experiences for Childbirth Training
A normal delivery
An instrumental vaginal delivery
Fetal tachycardia due to maternal pyrexia
Fetal central nervous system depression by narcotics given to the mother
Major post-partum hemorrhage due to uterine atony
Maternal cardio-respiratory arrest
Umbilical cord prolapse
SIMULATED ELECTRONIC FETAL MONITORING FOR BIRTH SIMULATION
The emulated cardiotocograph (CTG) monitor displays maternal and fetal physiological data as well as an on-screen reproduction of the paper strip produced by a real CTG printer for a realistic virtual childbirth simulation.
