Maria Repenicado Dias Laboratory

The Maternal-Child Nursing Laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and equipment for teaching, providing huge gains in terms of the students’ scientific and technical preparation.

The new equipment makes it possible to train various techniques and procedures, and, above all, greater interaction between the teacher and the student and of these both with the settings.

Among this new equipment, there are two manikins (called Noelle and Lucine) to simulate different types of deliveries and the vital signs of the mother and the child during the delivery and in case of obstetric risk. This equipment is mainly used by postgraduate (specialization and master) students.

The laboratory also has an incubator, a reanimation table, and other work tables identical to those used in maternal-child care settings. Therefore, students acquire knowledge on how to use these materials and on the practices that they will have to perform in real-life situations.
