Pediatrics unit Livorno, high fidelity mannequin for pediatric emergencies

OLT Offshore LNG Toscana on the side of children


An interactive mannequin for high-fidelity pediatric simulations, this is the latest contribution from OLT Offshore LNG Toscana to the Pediatric unit of the Livorno hospital.
The relationship between the company and the health facility is further strengthening. The donation of the high-fidelity mannequin, in support of the pediatric simulation program, is part of a wider path that also saw the donation of a video laryngoscope in 2018.

For several years in Livorno, as part of the SimPNet pediatric simulation network coordinated by the Meyer Pediatric Hospital in Florence, a high-fidelity simulation program for pediatric and neonatal emergencies has been developed, in which the child is replaced by a sophisticated mannequin able to reproduce with a high degree of fidelity the physiological and vital reactions.

The equipment, state-of-the-art and central to the management of pediatric emergencies, allows you to simulate and consequently learn new techniques, as well as to familiarize yourself with complex cases in a safe environment, repeating the same scenarios over and over, often based on real cases that created management difficulties. Exercising medical staff is essential for strengthening teamwork and identifying the best strategies for evaluating, communicating, deciding and managing resources.

OLT’s commitment to supporting childhood plays a central role in the actions of responsibility towards the territory implemented by the company. OLT strongly believes in cooperating with the community to jointly identify the essential needs.
Regardless of the health emergency caused by the pandemic, which has exacerbated some specific needs, we must never forget to support the National Health System, the cornerstone of the right to health of all citizens.
