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

A Few Details to Discuss
There are a lot of options when it comes to what you can get inside of your personalized kit. For it to qualify as a kit, you must have at least one manikin and one AED. There are a lot of additional products and accessories offered throughout the kit building experience that you can select and make custom to your specific training needs. Various products that we sell have a warranty of up to 3-years, and EVERY order comes with fast and free shipping.
Different Product Options
There are multiple options for products offered in the build-a-kit package. For example, you can get three different sizes of manikins. Those sizes are adult, child, and infant. Along with size, you can get your manikins with or without a feedback monitor. If you want one manikin, we have a single option, but we also have a 4-pack. Want more than one size? Perfect, we have multiple different pre-selected combinations and we also have a family pack. If you need an AED for your training, they come in singles and 4-packs, and you have 4 different AED options to choose from to best fit your needs.

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!”
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.
