CPR Awareness Week is Here!

90 Seconds Can Save Your Life

Hands-Only CPR — Anyone can do it. Everyone should!

 

Each year, more than 350,000 EMS-assessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the U.S. When a person has a cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediately receiving CPR from someone nearby.

We’re pleased to support the American Heart Association’s efforts to observe this important week, which spotlights how lives can be saved if more Americans know CPR and how to use an AED. Continue reading CPR Awareness Week is Here!

Prestan Has a Product Update!

Now Presenting…

Prestan Adult Manikins with NOSE 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!

Product Update, Prestan
NEW Adult Manikin Nostrils

Please Note…

The new nose holes on the manikin’s face skin are for visual purposes only. This means that they are not fully functioning – air will not 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!

Whether it be in your home, office, at school or on a ball field, I believe having a rescue mask available will encourage more people to perform CPR with rescue breaths.
