Fresh off the Press – We Made It! 6 Years in a Row!
Thanks to our amazing customers, MCR Medical has made the Columbus Business First’sFast 50 Awards list for the 6th consecutive year! We are extremely fortunate to be nominated and to receive this award! As a small company, we are learning and growing every single day. In a previous blog, we were excited to announce our company’s move to a much larger, standalone office and warehouse space. Our company move reflects our hard work that landed us where we are today.
What is the Fast 50 Award?
Each year, the Fast 50 list highlights the top 50 fastest-growing private companies around Columbus, Ohio. Only for-profit, privately held companies averaging at least $1 million in revenue over the past three years are eligible. In years past, the Fast 50 list includes real estate, tech companies, logistics consultants, medical and crafting entrepreneurs.

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. Continue reading Honoring Karen Morrison With Wildflower Seeds

With everything going on, we want to address a question we have been receiving quite often.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY MANIKIN TO BE UP TO STANDARDS WITH COVID-19?
Prestan Products always recommends cleaning your CPR manikins thoroughly after each class. Along with cleaning the outside torso and face, you want to make sure you are opening the manikin and wiping the chest foam and skin to sanitize the inside as well. You can use a mixture of soap and water to clean the manikin effectively. If the area is extremely dirty, you can also use common household cleaners such as Formula 409, Windex, or Vim. Clorox or Lysol wipes can also be gently applied to clean them if needed.
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!”
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.
