Prestan Discontinuing Light Skin Tone CPR Manikins

Manikin manufacturer responds to CPR market

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 Discontinuing Light Skin Tone Manikins Aug. 31, 2018.

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.

Are You Afraid to Save a Life by performing CPR?

Don’t be afraid to save a life!

MCR Medical hearbeat.
Safe a life. Learn CPR.

 

While researching the top concerns of performing CPR I came across an article in Huffington Post by Dr. Amer Aldeen. The following paragraph from that article states not only the fears we most often hear but also some statistics that you can’t but help take notice of: “If chest compressions are so easy to learn and effective, why does only one out of every three sudden cardiac arrest victims receive them? Why do only 5 percent of victims get treated with an automated external defibrillator? Quite simply, people are afraid. They are afraid of causing more harm than good, of being sued, of performing mouth-to-mouth ventilation, and of (literally) shocking someone.” Continue reading Are You Afraid to Save a Life by performing CPR?
