Small simulator. Big results.

As the complexity of pediatric hospital admissions grows, so must clinicians’ pediatric skills.

CAE Aria can help.

A high-fidelity pediatric medical manikin, CAE Aria prepares students and practicing professionals for the moments that count. Training with CAE Aria reduces medical errors, improves performance and enhances pediatric patient care.

Wireless and tetherless, CAE Aria simulates a 7-year-old child with interchangeable gender. Sixty vocal expressions and sounds, plus an advanced airway, neurological features and an optional bleeding system promote life-like training scenarios. CAE Aria enables students and clinicians to:

  • Assess verbal cues, such as confusion, anxiety, stress and pain
  • Learn airway management skills
  • Conduct neurological evaluations
  • Assess patient cardiac/perfusion/gastrointestinal and genitourinary status
  • Manage intravenous (IV), intramuscular (IM) and intraosseous (IO) access for medication delivery
  • Administer medications and fluids
  • Insert catheters and enemas
  • Train for pediatric emergencies as if they were really happening 

Students who train with CAE Aria will be more than ready for any real-life pediatric emergency.

Life-like Simulations

Ten Simulated Clinical Experiences developed by medical and education experts offer training for some of the most common and emotionally charged pediatric emergencies, like an accidental overdose or gunshot wound.

Distinctive Capabilities

Key features include sternal rub, bleeding modules, additional IV/IM/IO sites, substernal retractions, gastronomy tube and suppository administration, all to enhance inclusive, confidence-building learning.

Easy Mobility

CAE Aria is lightweight, wireless and tetherless, so learners can stay in the moment, whether that’s in a home, ambulance or simulated hospital setting.

Two Genders, One Pediatric Simulator

Full gender interchangeability expands training potential while saving both money and space.

Options for All Needs

CAE Aria is built on a configurable platform with unique and comprehensive configuration options that allow for progressive skills development.

Training Requirements

CAE Aria meets advanced training requirements for Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization for PEARS and Advanced Pediatric Life Support (APLS) certifications.
