Honoring Karen Morrison With Wildflower Seeds

How It All Started

Karen Morrison co-founded MCR Medical with her husband, Charlie, to meet a need they saw first-hand in the first aid and CPR training community: providing the best quality products, at the best price, with integrity and an authentic personal touch through the relatively new market of e-commerce. They started MCR as a small business out of their spare bedroom, handling all of the customer calls, order fulfillment, shipping and the ins and outs of small business themselves. Together they worked hard, rarely taking time off as they committed to the business and developed their future plans.

Karen’s bright, happy spirit and personal warmth greeted every sales call, and her business savvy and commitment to the future were the backbone of their partnership. Because of their commitment to quality and integrity, the business quickly flourished. In 2014 they  purchased  their first warehouse, beginning to realize their dream. With their shared background in CPR training and first aid, Karen and Charlie together developed and sourced the best CPR products to share with their fellow trainers, always mindful of the human impact of kindness and fairness in their interactions with their customers and their workforce. They were not just building a successful business, but a GOOD business, and Karen’s warmth and wisdom led the way.

Prestan Manikin Compression Clicker Problems?

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!”

AHA Student Workbooks – Did You Know?

Did you know the AHA Student Workbooks are only $2.50 each??? At the beginning of 2018, the American Heart Association reduced the price of the books in hopes of getting trainers to purchase more books and allow their students to take them home. 

Our customers have communicated that they often purchase books for their class then reuse them for additional classes. With the reduction of the Workbook cost, trainers are now able to purchase a new book for every student. This allows the trainee to take home the material and retain the information. If they wish to refresh their memory, they will have the AHA Workbook as a reference. 

The AHA Heartsaver First Aid/CPR/AED Student Workbooks are cost effective and a great way to keep the students engaged, even after they leave your training session. At $2.50 each, every student can now have this opportunity. 

As always, we have the AHA material in stock and ready to ship today with our FAST and FREE SHIPPING!

The Giving Back Conundrum

MCR Medical finds that when we give back, we get so much more

The “Giving Back Conundrum”:

Does it ever seem that, when you do something nice for someone else, YOU are the one who gets the most benefit? It’s almost unfair! Why should helping others give us such a boost? We’re already so fortunate. And yet, it always seems to work that way. At MCR Medical, it’s important that we share our good fortune by meeting real needs in our community. Still, every time it feels like we “get” more from the experience than we “give.” 

Sack lunches ready to go to The Open Shelter

Here’s an example. Since August 2017, the first Friday of the month finds us taking 200 sack lunches to The Open Shelter in Columbus, Ohio. This amazing organization was the first 24-hour emergency walk-in shelter in Ohio and has helped over

30,000 men, women and children with securing and retaining housing, providing hot meals, food, clothing, hygiene supplies, tarps and sleeping bags since opening their doors in 1983.

Free Shipping Now Fast-N-Free at MCR Medical

Most Orders Now Arrive in 4 Days or Less, Coast to Coast!

Everyone loves fast shipping, especially if its free! I love free shipping when I shop on line and we don’t want our customers to have to sacrifice prompt delivery for free shipping. I recently purchased new shoes on-line (shhhh, don’t tell my wife) and I selected the free shipping option. After paying my favorite price for shipping, free, I discovered they wouldn’t arrive for another 7 days. In addition to the long wait, the delivery window was 12 days. Here at MCR Medical, you will receive better customer services with Fast N Free Shipping.

Our personal shopping expectations have changed, therefore MCR Medical’s shipping methods are progressing to meet your needs. We upgraded our “Free Economy Shipping” to “Fast N Free Shipping” for ALL of our customer, including you. In the past, we used economy shipping, but we weren’t satisfied with the wide spread delivery window (much like my shoe experience). Now we are using FedEx Ground and USPS First Class or USPS Priority Mail Packages for your free shipping service. This provides all of our customers with a faster service and more predictable shipping window. Most people in the US will receive their package in 4 days or Less, many orders will be much faster since we are in Ohio. As always we will provide tracking numbers for each order so you can track your order through its shipping process.

Feel free to call if you have any questions. Our Customer Service team will gladly assist.

Getting Students to Engage During CPR Training

A few Tips & Tricks for the Instructor

Let’s be honest,  high school students are more concerned with social media and the Kardashians than they are with CPR and First Aid Training.

Now more than ever we are seeing a larger presence of CPR instructors in high schools. This is primarily due to new bills passing that require high school students to have some type of CPR training prior to graduation.
