Need help with your manikin’s clicker? Let’s troubleshoot!
Recently, we’ve had a few calls from customers having Prestan Manikin compression clicker problems in the Prestan Professional Series manikins. In this blog, we’ll break down some of the possible causes and ways to fix the issue!
What’s a clicker?
First off, let’s explain the “clicker” and how it works. The clicker is part of the compression rate assembly located in the chest cavity of your Prestan Professional Series CPR manikin. When the user presses firmly enough to deliver the proper depth of compression for effective CPR, this mechanism will compress and recoil with a loud “click!”

Handle big classes hygienically (without breaking the budget!)
CPR training uses a lot of “consumables.” As an instructor, you know you have to replace training valves after each class, but do you know why? Today we’ll explain a little about how valves work, and compare pros and cons of valves vs CPR training shields.
How it Works:
When students breathe into the valve, it’s like blowing into a balloon: inflating and deflating (lung bags work just like balloons!). Then, they pass the “balloon” to the next person.
Within the valve stem is a gauze-like material that prevents fluids transferring between students during practice, preventing cross-contamination.
Earlier this month we learned of Prestan discontinuing light skin tone CPR manikins. This decision includes adult, child, infant, single and 4 packs, collections, family packs and jaw-thrust manikins. Some light skin tone products will be available for a limited time.
Prestan’s decision to nix the light models is based on the greater popularity of medium and dark manikins, which look more realistic and are easier to keep clean. The change comes at a time when many CPR instructors are preparing for the 2019 AHA compliance updates.

Exclusive product adds professional look while protecting your manikin
DO YOU DRESS FOR CPR SUCCESS?
You are a CPR professional, and your classroom rig should reflect that. The new ManiVest CPR Manikin Vest from MCR Medical brings next level CPR training and protects your investment. Check out this exclusive accessory that sets you apart from the competition.
We designed our vest for adult-sized manikins with several unique features.
The custom fit protects your manikin body from dirt and damage during travel or storage (also appropriate for most small/ child sized manikins).
The vest easily unzips to begin practice compressions and access feedback monitor (if applicable) without undressing.
The see-through pocket can hold your business card, or add a little whimsy to your class by having students “name” the manikin and place a name tag in the pocket.
