If you are wanting the most realistic AED trainer then look no further than the Prestan AED trainer. What makes them the best?  The pad sensing system! It’s that simple. 
The unique Pad Sensing System automatically detects when each pad is placed on the manikin. Programming runs through a sensor in the center of the pad’s adhesive which most realistically simulates a live AED, allowing for a more realistic training experience. No remote control is necessary, although available for the Professional AED Trainer if desired.
The high-quality pads last for over 100 applications and the pad adhesive adheres and removes well to any manikin on the market without leaving messy residue. No more damaged pads or cleaning adhesive off your manikins. Pad replacement is affordable and easy, just replace the pad not the cord.
The state-of-the-art training pads will assure a true-to-life training experience.

Other features include:

• Pads are pre-connected and ready to use, unlike other AED trainers
that use outdated plug-in technology
• One set of dual-graphics pads work for both adult and child training
• Pads have an embedded ‘switch’ which senses proper pad
attachment to the manikin (Pad Sensing System) (patent pending)
• The silicone base adhesive on the pads, coupled with the foam
structure, ensures easy application & removal

Does Your Employer Offer First Aid/CPR and AED Training?

Recently I came upon a survey and its companion report, sponsored by the American Heart Association. I thought it important enough to share.

This survey sought to understand how organizations are approaching First Aid, CPR and AED training. Unfortunately, most U.S. employees are not prepared to handle cardiac emergencies in the workplace because they lack training in CPR and first aid according to the new survey results.

In this survey, 1,052 Environmental Health and Safety Professionals interacted with 636 EHS Professionals completing it. Some key information collected included the following:

·         78% of respondents stated that it is very important for their employees to be trained in first aid/CPR/AED training.

·         The top reason for offering first aid/CPR/AED training was their commitment to employee safety.

.         The survey stated that more than 50% of employees take first aid/CPR/AED training seriously.

.         33% of respondents said that lives were saved in the workplace because of the training. 




Also interesting is that nearly one-third third of respondents (30.3%) indicated that they did know of lives having been saved outside of the workplace because of proper first aid/CPR/AED training. Nearly half of survey participants (47.8%) knew of situations outside the workplace where injuries or medical conditions were successfully treated. These numbers prove that this type of training helps save lives.

Here at MCR Medical all employees must be certified in first aid/CPR/AED and I feel confident that we would know what to do instinctively in case of an emergency. Shouldn’t you and your employees feel the same way?

You can find more information on this report and workforce training on the American Heart Association’s website.

Are You Ready to teach CPR?

Each week we field calls from people who are new CPR instructors or want to become one.

In 1960 when cardiopulmonary resuscitation was first developed, the American Heart Association started a program to acquaint physicians with close-chest cardiac resuscitation and became the forerunner of CPR training for the general public. Today there are thousands of CPR instructors across the United States and each year more and more people are being trained as instructors.
Each week we field calls from people who are new CPR instructors or want to become one. Because of this we decided to compile a New Instructor Checklist (included in this blog post) to help alleviate some of the work of going into this business for yourself. We also have created CPR Training kits that include manikins, AED trainers and other items for new instructors. Check them out on our website.
If you are new instructor or interested in becoming one, we can help. Not only do we have quality CPR, AED and First Aid training equipment at low prices, our owners are seasoned CPR, First Aid and CERT instructors / instructor trainers with decades of first aid and practical field experience as well. 

Email us at sales@mcrmedical.com or call us at 614-782-2100.

Hope to hear from you soon.
