Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Your Prestan Manikins

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.

MCR Medical Now Offers Batteries for CPR Manikins Without Them!

Shipping regulations mean a big change for Prestan CPR products, but MCR Medical has a solution

Batteries are no longer included in Prestan CPR Products sold in the U.S. and overseas! In a recent email to vendors, Prestan expressed regret for this decision but stated that international shipping regulations make the change necessary as of January 1,2020.  

 

Prestan Manikins will no longer come with batteries! They’re as shocked as we are!

WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU

Hopefully, you already have your Prestan CPR products and all is well! But if you’re making a new purchase or plan to order soon, be aware that you’ll need to supply the batteries to get your manikins and AED trainers class-ready. 

 

More products? Stock up on more batteries!
(K404M Kit Shown)

This change affects all the products in the Prestan line up, including:

Professional Series Manikins with feedback- all models, 2 AA batteries per manikin

Ultralite Manikins with Feedback Piston installed – 2 AA batteries per unit

Ultralite Manikins Replacement/Upgrade Piston Feedback Unit – 2 AA batteries per unit

AED Trainers – 3 to 4 C batteries, depending on model

 

Keep in mind to multiply those numbers when purchasing kits with multiple manikins!

 

 

We’ve got your back

Luckily, MCR Medical has a stash of AA batteries and are beginning to offer them as an option for purchase as a set of 2 for $0.60! This will be available, as of now, for any type of manikin purchase. This means that if you purchase an adult, child, infant or manikin kit, you will have the option to purchase AA batteries.

Buy 2 AA batteries for $0.60 with the purchase of your manikin!

In order for the pop up box containing the offer to appear, please make sure you click on the item you would like to purchase so that it takes you to the product page (the page with the full discription of the product). Once you are on the product page, you are able to add the item to the cart and a pop up box offering batteries will apear. Completing this step is the only way that you will have the option to purchase batteries with your manikin. If you are buying a kit, please keep in mind that each Prestan manikin requires 2 AA batteries each.

Please Note: At this time, MCR Medical will not be offering any C batteries for the Prestan AED’s. 

 

Prestan Products still industry-leading, top quality CPR products

While everyone regrets the lack of batteries and out-of-the-box readiness for their products, we at MCR continue to view Prestan manikins and AED trainers as the best choice for CPR training. Prestan’s high quality, realistic manikins and trainers offer the most authentic classroom experience at a very competitive price point. We believe in them so much, they’re the only manikins we’ll sell! So you can purchase your Prestan products with confidence – just don’t forget the batteries!

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!

Introducing the MCR Medical NEW Build-a-Kit Feature

What Is It?

We are so excited to announce that we will be adding a new, flexible feature to our website. The build-a-kit option will allow you to make a kit specialized just for you! With this option, you are able to get everything you need all in one place. You are also able to save a purchase under your personal account and repurchase the same products next time. Custom kit building is convenient, easy, and user-friendly; we are SO excited for the release!

 

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.

 

 

FREE STUFF, FREE STUFF, FREE STUFF

Along with the brand-new build-a-kit option, we also have a new reward program. There are 4 different levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. The levels are based on the cost of the purchase.

Silver is $400.00-$799.99
Gold is $800.00-$1199.99

Once you spend a certain amount of money you get a free item and the free items add up as you advance in levels. For being in the Bronze level you would get novelty grab bag filled with silicone wrist bands, button pins, and key chains.  Move up to Silver and you will also get a 10-pack of MCR Medical Training Valves. For Gold, you will also get an EpiPen Trainer. Finally, for platinum, you will get everything mentioned previously AND our CarryAll-S CPR supplies carrying bag.

We are super excited about the release of our build-a-kit feature, and we can’t wait for you all to get the chance to use it!

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
