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!

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!”
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’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.

DO YOU DRESS FOR CPR SUCCESS?
You are a CPR professional, and your classroom rig should reflect that. The new ManiVest CPR Manikin Vest from MCR Medical brings next level CPR training and protects your investment. Check out this exclusive accessory that sets you apart from the competition.
We designed our vest for adult-sized manikins with several unique features.
The custom fit protects your manikin body from dirt and damage during travel or storage (also appropriate for most small/ child sized manikins).
The vest easily unzips to begin practice compressions and access feedback monitor (if applicable) without undressing.
The see-through pocket can hold your business card, or add a little whimsy to your class by having students “name” the manikin and place a name tag in the pocket.

DALLAS, August 15, 2017 — The American Heart Association – the world’s leading voluntary health organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular disease – will now require the use of an instrumented directive feedback device (CPR Feedback Device) in all courses that teach adult CPR skills, effective January 31, 2019. The devices provide, real-time, audiovisual and corrective evaluation and instruction on chest compression rate, depth, chest recoil and proper hand placement during CPR training.
Everyday at work I come across stories about how CPR training helped save a life. I often wonder if having a high quality CPR manikin like Prestan Manikins helps with some of these positive outcomes. Pondering this question is how I came up with the idea for this blog post.
