What are some other design benefits should you look for before you purchase the next CPR manikin for your office, clinic, or hospital department?

When you are spending money on any training device for your practice, you want to be sure it is going to be the most advantageous to your office and staff, as well as your wallet. For these reasons, there are a few things you want to look for in a well made CPR manikin. Among the top design benefits to consider, a CPR manikin with a fully functional head, neck, and jaw is crucial for ensuring that training and practice hours are as life like as possible. In a real life setting, the neck and jaw are going to move in a specific way. It helps if the CPR manikin is equipped to do that as well.
Another element you will want to look for in your CPR manikin are some anatomically correct landmarks on the body. Hand placement depends a great deal on where the victim’s belly button and chest bones are located. With the newer models of CPR manikins, the anatomical landmarks are in place to give the student a clear view of where their hands should be. As unimportant as this feature may sound, it makes a huge difference in how the overall training comes out. A good medical supply company will have no trouble helping you choose the correct model for your needs.
