CPR Training Shields vs Valves- Pros and Cons

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.

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.  Continue reading Prestan Discontinuing Light Skin Tone CPR Manikins

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.
