  • The Original Prestan Manikins are GOING AWAY!

    The Original Prestan Manikins are GOING AWAY!

    BIG NEWS!

    After a hugely successful 10 years on the market, Prestan is retiring their flagship item from the product line – the Light Skin Manikin!

    While replacement skin overlays and faces will still be available, the Light Skin Manikin in of itself will soon be no more! This will apply to all Light Skin Manikins….adult, child, and infant; singles, four-packs, and collections.

    Due to their more realistic tones, the popularity of the Medium and Dark Skin Manikins has surpassed that of the Light Skin Manikins by about 20 to 1. These manikins still use the advanced skin overlay developed with 3M – for easy cleaning, discoloration prevention, and effortless AED pad adherence and removal – but the tone is far more lifelike which has become overwhelmingly preferred in recent times.

    How does this affect you?

    In the past, you have purchased this soon-to-be discontinued product from us. This change does not pose an issue for the manikins you currently have and use, but we thought perhaps you’re looking to add to your inventory and would like to keep a consistent physicality / look & feel of your training equipment –
    Now would be the time to do so!

    Prestan is accepting orders for the Light Skin Manikins only until August 31st! We are asking any of our customers looking for the Light Skin Manikin to place their order with us by the close of August 29th - and are offering FREE GROUND SHIPPING*.

    You may have seen or heard of the new requirement announced by the American Heart Association stating that the AHA “will now require the use of an instrumented directive feedback device in all courses that teach adult CPR skills” which is to be put into effect early 2019. As a Prestan manikin user, you’re in luck! So long as your manikins include the monitor, you are already in compliance. But don’t worry if you purchased manikins without monitors – you can easily, and cost-effectively, get up to date by simply ordering the monitors alone to place within your manikins.

    ORIGINAL SKIN TONE DISCONTINUED!

    The light skin tone will no longer be available for Prestan Professional Manikins.

    August 31st, 2018 Prestan will discontinue Prestan Professional Manikins in the Light skin tone.

    After this date, Prestan Professional Manikins will only be available
    in Medium or Dark skin tones.

    This applies to all Professional Manikins: Adult, Child, Replacement skin 4-packs, Collections, Family Packs and Jaw-Thrust. Replacement skin 4-packs in the Light skin tone will continue to be available for torsos as well as replacement faces.

    Stock up TODAY before they are gone!


    *Free Ground Shipping available in the 48 contiguous U.S. States for all Prestan CPR Manikins. Does not apply to parts and accessories.

  • Cal Fire is Blazing New Lifesaving Trails

    Cal Fire stepped up its lifesaving readiness this month, with a massive effort to deploy 186 new AEDs throughout California.

    Automated External Defibrillators are a vital link in the lifesaving chain of survival – picking up the gap between pre-hospital CPR and the more advanced medical care given to victims of sudden cardiac arrest once they reach the hospital.

    This week the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection took delivery of 93 Defibtech AEDs and placed an order for an additional 93 through an acquisition arrangement with the AED grant program.

    These AEDs will be deployed to Cal Fire's 39 Conservation Camps statewide that house nearly 4,300 inmates and wards. These camps are operated in conjunction with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). Through these cooperative efforts Cal Fire is authorized to operate 196 fire crews year-round. These crews are available to respond to all types of emergencies including wildfires, floods, search and rescue, and earthquakes. When not responding to emergencies, the crews are busy with conservation and community service work projects for state, federal, and local government agencies. Fire crews perform several million hours of emergency response each year, and more on work projects.

    With this new lifesaving equipment, the dedicated, well-trained, emergency response forces can better respond successfully to heart attacks, drownings, and the many other types of emergencies they serve on a daily basis.

    The AED grant program is a corporate sponsored buy-down grant initiative which has placed many thousands of AEDs throughout the US over the past 15 years. Working through corporate sponsorship the AED Grant project helps individuals, social and faith-based groups, as well as public and private entities obtain these Critical Lifesaving Devices at or below what an AED Distributor would pay for them, thereby empowering America toward the goal of deploying AED wherever tragedy may strike. "We could, and have in a few cases, provide 100% free AEDs," explains Amanda Jenkins of the AED Grant program, "but as a zero-profit initiative, making these lifesaving units available at or below normal Distributor cost we are able to able to help launch thousands upon thousands of these simple lifesavers to qualifying individuals, groups, and businesses – rather than just a select few." Sponsored by AED manufacturers including Defibtech, as well as safety companies such as American CPR Training™ and First-Aid-Product.com, the program is now in its 15th year with ever-greater deployments, such as this Cal Fire project, and recent large initiatives with AAA, in addition to several Public Utilities and Indian Reservations – plus thousands of smaller businesses, churches, schools, and individuals.

  • If You're Gonna Die... Be Near a Guy

    A new study says that CPR performed by males is more effective than CPR performed by females.

    A new study conducted by the University of Basel and University Hospital Basel, Switzerland found that women simply aren’t as effective as men are with cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

    Influence of Gender on the Performance of Cardiopulmonary Rescue Teams: A Randomized, Prospective Simulator Study.

    man-giving-cprThe project studied the differences between women and men in the execution of CPR as well as their leadership skills during the lifesaving procedure. Earlier studies indicated that the effective leadership and communication during CPR increases the odds of survival for the casualty.

    Certain to breed much controversy, the study say s that women take longer to act, spend less time with their hands on the patient, and are less likely to take control of the situation.

    American CPR Training™, ILCOR< ECC, and otherguidelines say giving early, uninterrupted chest compressions and breaths is vital when someone suffers a cardiac arrest.

    216 medical school students were recruited for the study and were split evenly as 108 female and 108 male rescuers. The research team ran a simulated cardiac arrest scenario and monitored each student’s performance, measuring them on “hands-on time,” which is considered the first three minutes of uninterrupted chest compressions after a patient falls into cardiac arrest.

    The female teams took an average of 109 seconds before placing their hands on the patient, compared with 70 seconds for men. The female teams had their hands on the patient for just 87 seconds in the first three minutes of care, compared with 109 seconds for men.

    The students were also graded on their level of leadership by tracking the number of times they took control of the situation and directed others on how to assist, or explained clearly what or how to perform a task.

    The simulations were completed in same-sex teams and then again in mixed-gender teams.

    The authors found a significant difference in the quality of care when it came to comparing men to women.

    Study Objectives: Little is known about the influence of gender on resuscitation performance which may improve future education in resuscitation. The aim of this study was to compare female and male rescuers in regard to cardiopulmonary resuscitation and leadership performance.

    Learn CPR Now! Learn CPR Now!

    The female-only teams also showed less leadership communication compared with the male-only teams. Even in mixed teams, women made significantly fewer clear leadership statements than their male counterparts.

    Professor Sabina Hunziker, the study leader, stated in a university news release that even though men and women may understand CPR all the same, better training standards and practices would be especially helpful for young female physicians.

    “This suggests that more targeted measures need to be introduced to prepare and train women for emergency situations,” says Hunziker.
