We understand a lot is going on in the world right now, and we want to let everyone know we are still here for you. Below are a couple of answers to frequent questions we have received regarding our shipping timeline.

Shipping regulations mean a big change for Prestan CPR products, but MCR Medical has a solution
Batteries are no longer included in Prestan CPR Products sold in the U.S. and overseas! In a recent email to vendors, Prestan expressed regret for this decision but stated that international shipping regulations make the change necessary as of January 1,2020.
WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU
Hopefully, you already have your Prestan CPR products and all is well! But if you’re making a new purchase or plan to order soon, be aware that you’ll need to supply the batteries to get your manikins and AED trainers class-ready.
This change affects all the products in the Prestan line up, including:
Professional Series Manikins with feedback- all models, 2 AA batteries per manikin
Ultralite Manikins with Feedback Piston installed – 2 AA batteries per unit
Ultralite Manikins Replacement/Upgrade Piston Feedback Unit – 2 AA batteries per unit
AED Trainers – 3 to 4 C batteries, depending on model
Keep in mind to multiply those numbers when purchasing kits with multiple manikins!
We’ve got your back
Luckily, MCR Medical has a stash of AA batteries and are beginning to offer them as an option for purchase as a set of 2 for $0.60! This will be available, as of now, for any type of manikin purchase. This means that if you purchase an adult, child, infant or manikin kit, you will have the option to purchase AA batteries.
In order for the pop up box containing the offer to appear, please make sure you click on the item you would like to purchase so that it takes you to the product page (the page with the full discription of the product). Once you are on the product page, you are able to add the item to the cart and a pop up box offering batteries will apear. Completing this step is the only way that you will have the option to purchase batteries with your manikin. If you are buying a kit, please keep in mind that each Prestan manikin requires 2 AA batteries each.
Please Note: At this time, MCR Medical will not be offering any C batteries for the Prestan AED’s.
Prestan Products still industry-leading, top quality CPR products
While everyone regrets the lack of batteries and out-of-the-box readiness for their products, we at MCR continue to view Prestan manikins and AED trainers as the best choice for CPR training. Prestan’s high quality, realistic manikins and trainers offer the most authentic classroom experience at a very competitive price point. We believe in them so much, they’re the only manikins we’ll sell! So you can purchase your Prestan products with confidence – just don’t forget the batteries!
If you’ve got questions about ordering any of the Prestan Products we carry, a purchase you’ve made or are planning to make, or our UltraLite Manikin battery offer, feel free to visit us at mcrmedical.com. Our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff are happy to help in any way we can. We’ll get through this together!
Prestan Adult Manikins withNOSE HOLES! The Prestan Professional Series manikins will now have life-like nose holes on the face skin. This feature was put into effect on October 3rd and will now be on all new Prestan Adult Manikins (PP-AM-100M-MS). If you for some reason need a replacement face skin, you will receive an updated version with the new nose holes. You can view the new product update in the picture below!
The new nose holes on the manikin’s face skin are for visual purposes only. This means that they are not fully functioning – air willnot flow through the nose holes into the lung bags! They are meant to stimulate a realistic nose pinch and enhance the overall look of the manikin. Prestan is working hard to make their CPR Manikins as realistic as possible for their customer, and we are super excited about the updates they are making!
Our company’s growth continues thanks to amazing customers like you!

Work N’ Leisure Products has just recently released their New Practi-WLCRdM.
It is a CPR Feedback device that can provide both compression depth and rate feedback. This is a great solution for instructors who have already invested in CPR Manikins prior to the new AHA guideline change. The new WLCRdM is 100% compliant with the guidelines and can be used on any CPR manikin. Continue reading New Product Provides AHA Compliance for Both Depth & Rate
MCR Medical now carries American Heart Association’s BLS (Basic Life Support) training material. You spoke and we listened to your needs.
This recent decision was made to help make our customers shopping experience as convenient as possible. We have been carrying the AHA Heartsaver material for a while and have had many customers inquire about the BLS manuals and DVDs. MCR Medical is a one-stop-shop for all of your CPR and First Aid needs, so shop away. We are always interested in hearing your suggestions, this includes any product feedback or product recommendations.
Our new products are in stock and ready to ship with our Fast and Free Shipping.
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.

We love our pets and want to keep them healthy. Learning about Pet First Aid and CPR can help accomplish this.
According to a recent Pet Owners Survey, 68 percent of all U.S. households owned at least one pet. As of March 2017, a total of 89.7 million dogs were estimated to live in U.S. households as pets. In 2017 the total number of cats owned as a pet in the United States amounted to about 95.6 million. That is a lot of loving owners who would do just about anything to help their pets.
