Add AED Training to Your CPR Classes with Our AED Practice Trainer!
AED training is becoming increasingly more important. Public places around the world are now having an automated external defibrillator on hand, which has the potential to save many people’s lives. Of course, being able to combine CPR and AED is the key to expert lifesaving skills, so we always recommend combining your CPR classes with some AED training too.
Today, we would like to introduce you to our latest AED Practice Trainer, which will prove extremely valuable during your classes. Want to know more about this device and how it could benefit your students? Please read the information about the AED Practice Trainer below.
What Is the Importance of AED Training?
Many people believe they do not require AED training, even though the opposite is true. While automated external defibrillators are made to be operated by anyone, even people who have not received training, this device must be combined with CPR to increase the survival chances of the patient in question.
Let us imagine the following situation. A person suffers cardiac arrest at an airport and you want to help. You ask a bystander to get the AED and someone else to call the emergency services. However, you cannot simply wait until the AED arrives, since every moment counts in this kind of situation. Until the arrival of the automated external defibrillator, you must give the patient CPR. Then, you must successfully combine CPR and AED; this means a quick switch from CPR to AED and vice versa. Therefore, training of both CPR and AED is recommended for anyone who wants to have these lifesaving skills at their disposal.
What Scenarios Can This AED Trainer Help Students Prepare For?
An automated external defibrillator can be used for various emergencies that may occur in public areas. A common emergency that may require the use of an automated external defibrillator is sudden cardiac arrest.
Sudden cardiac arrest can have various causes, in which case an automatic external defibrillator can find a solution. One common cause is an irregular heartbeat or arrhythmia, where the heart’s lower chambers do not beat normally. Instead, they beat rapidly and irregularly.
Another type of arrhythmia that may need an automated external defibrillator is a condition called ventricular tachycardia; this condition causes the ventricles to beat fast for a few seconds.
In both cases described, an automated external defibrillator can provide the patient with an electric shock, which can restore a normal hearth rhythm. However, time is of the essence in these cases since the AED will only be effective within minutes of a sudden cardiac arrest.
There are several signs of sudden cardiac arrest, which you must disclose to your students during training. The patient usually collapses suddenly and loses consciousness. It is possible that the person stops breathing and that the skin gets a blueish shade due to a lack of oxygen. The patient in question may also display spasms.
When you hook up an automated external defibrillator, the machine can determine if an electric shock could aid the patient. Therefore, training with an AED could have major benefits!
Does the AED Practice Trainer Need to Be Used with a Manikin?
Yes, the AED Practice Trainer is designed to use with a manikin, which are also available at Mentone Educational. The device includes ten programs, which provide your students with ten different scenarios that could occur outside of the class.
Please note that our AED Practice Trainer is not only suitable for training on adult manikins, this trainer can also be used for child manikins. The device comes with both adult and child pads; this enables instructors to demonstrate correct CPR and AED combinations on both child and adult patients.
Is This AED Good for Students with Little Experience?
As we mentioned earlier, automated external defibrillators are made so that anyone could operate them; this is not limited to training equipment, but also real-life automated external defibrillators that can be found in public places. Therefore, students who are just starting out with CPR and AED will find it easy to work with this device after a demonstration by the instructor.
Please note that all automated external defibrillators come with instructions. Most of these are quite similar, but there can be small differences that students may encounter when they are out in the real world. Therefore, always mention to students to carefully check the instructions on an automated external defibrillator when dealing with a genuine emergency.
