Discover a CPR Training Manikin That Is Affordable and Realistic

When CPR instructors look for an affordable training manikin that is also realistic, they often have problems finding the best options. Fortunately, CPR instructors can now count on Mentone Educational and its range of Basic Buddy CPR Manikins, who provide them with the perfect blend of quality, affordability, and realism.

To learn more about our Basic Buddy CPR Manikins and their suitability for your CPR classes, feel free to read the information provided by the Mentone Educational team. We are sure you will love the features these manikins provide!

Is the Basic Buddy CPR Manikin Only Suitable for Adult CPR?

Most manikins can only be used for either adult or child CPR training; this due to the limitations in the anatomical design of the training manikins. However, this is not the case for the Basic Buddy CPR Manikin, which provide instructors with both adult and child instruction capabilities.

While we still recommend obtaining a separate training manikin for infant CPR training, instructors can use the Basic Buddy CPR Manikins for child and adult CPR. Anatomical structures of younger children are quite different from the basic manikin though, so if you need to teach CPR for babies or toddlers, an additional manikin is always suggested.

Still, the combination of child and adult CPR training is quite valuable for most CPR instructors. CPR can be given in schools and hospitals, and the Basic Buddy CPR Manikin gives instructors the equipment for both!

Do I Need One or Multiple Basic Buddy Manikins?

The number of manikins you require for your classes depends on the size of the group. If you are teaching larger groups, it is always recommended to have more than one manikin for practicing purposes. Fortunately, you can get a combination of our Basic Buddy CPR Manikins for an affordable price at Mentone Educational too.

Instructors who teach classes with less than four people usually find one of our Basic Buddy CPR Manikins sufficient. Still, we must mention that this manikin is also available in a baby version, which could prove useful for CPR instruction to nursery staff.

Can the Basic Buddy CPR Manikin Be Used with Lung Bags?

Even though the Basic Buddy CPR Manikin may look a little different from the classic training manikin, it comes with a remarkable amount of features. One of the features is that the manikin can be used with lung bags.

Lung bags are commonly used by CPR instructors to make CPR training more realistic. When a lung bag is inserted into the chest of the manikin, it creates a realistic rise and fall of the chest when mouth-to-mouth is applied. Of course, the lung bags also make training more sanitary, since the instructor only needs to remove the lung bags between students to keep the training manikin sanitary.

Cross contamination can be a problem during CPR training; this is why it is important to have a CPR training manikin that can hold lung bags. Lung bags eliminate the danger of cross contamination and can save any instructor lots of time, since there is no need to disinfect the training manikin after CPR class.

Is the Basic Buddy CPR Manikin a Realistic Option for My CPR Classes?

The lung bags we mentioned earlier add lots of realism to your CPR training, but there is another feature this manikin has that adds more realism. It is possible to perform a head tilt and chin lift on the manikin, which means it is easier for instructors to demonstrate those important techniques.

Do not let the unique colour of the Basic Buddy CPR Manikin fool you either, because it has quite the specific function for educational purposes. The training manikin is designed to display the xiphoid process a little clearer, enabling students to master both hand placement and compressions.

Can I Combine the Basic Buddy CPR Manikin with Other Accessories from Mentone Educational?

We already mentioned that this manikin can be combined with the lung bags from our range, but other accessories could be combined with this manikin too. One of these accessories is the AED trainer, which trains students in automatic external defibrillation.

AED trainers are commonly found in public places these days. They send a shock to the heart to restore a normal heart rhythm in someone who has suffered sudden cardiac arrest. When someone is trained in AED and encounters such a situation in public, they are more likely to act with confidence. Naturally, this could mean the difference between life or death for someone.

CPR instructors can also check out some of the additional accessories in our catalogue. There are countless accessories that can be used in combination with the Basic Buddy CPR Training, and which could make your CPR classes more realistic or efficient.
