What to Consider When Buying Your First CPR Training Manikins?
Many CPR instructors find their way to Mentone Educational to obtain their first CPR training manikins. However, there are many things to consider when searching for your first set of CPR training manikins. To help you find the best CPR training manikins for your classes, we have combined a list of important information below.
What Is the First Thing to Considering When Purchasing My First CPR Training Manikin?
Before you start browsing the different options at Mentone Educational, it is usually a good idea to ask yourself if you need one or multiple CPR training manikins. Some instructors who teach classes with only three or four people only need one CPR training manikin. However, if you teach larger classes, a larger number of training manikins will be required.
At Mentone Educational, we offer special deals on our multipacks; this could save instructors some money when they need to buy multiple manikins for their CPR classes. Of course, instructors who only need one training manikin can still take advantage of our attractive pricing on individual CPR training manikins.
What Is the Second Thing to Consider When Purchasing My First CPR Training Manikin?
You may believe that the brand is the second thing you want to consider when purchasing your first CPR training manikin, but brand is less important for instructors who shop at Mentone Educational. All brands we stock are of outstanding quality. Therefore, the second thing to consider when purchasing your CPR training manikin are the included features.
We all know about the classic CPR training manikin; this training manikin usually comes with an audible clicker, which releases a click when the correct compression depth is obtained. Mentone Educational provides these classic training manikins and they are certainly a good way to start building your equipment for CPR classes. However, we also have CPR training manikins with more advanced features.
Some of the CPR training manikins at Mentone Educational come with feedback systems. These feedback system can correct students on anything from compression speed and compression depth to rescue breaths. If you want to make sure your classes a little more self-sufficient, enabling you to spend more time on students who need extra instruction, one of our advanced training manikins might be the best solution.
Most instructors purchasing their training manikins from Mentone Educational will choose a combination of classic and advanced training manikins. The advanced training manikins are then used for students who require additional instruction on the techniques that are taught during the class. Of course, advanced training manikins are also good to provide detailed instruction at the beginning of the class.
At Mentone Educational, instructors can also find CPR training manikins that provide a visual representation of the effects of CPR; this helps students understand CPR on another level. A good example of such a CPR training manikin is our Brayden Adult CPR Trainer, which displays blood circulation during the execution of CPR.
What Is the Third Thing to Consider When Purchasing My First CPR Training Manikin?
Once you have determined the type of manikin you want to obtain and the essential features you want this manikin to have, you can move onto some of the accessories that can accompany your manikin. Even though we offer countless accessories, there are two essentials each CPR instructor should consider: the AED trainer and lung bags.
Lung bags are common tools for instructors these days. They can be used with a variety of CPR training manikins and provide students with a more realistic training scenario. When the lung bags are inserted in the training manikin, a more realistic rise and fall of the chest is achieved during training. Of course, the use of a lung bag for each individual student also eliminates problems such as cross-contamination.
The AED trainer (automated external defibrillator trainer) is another accessory that should be a serious consideration for instructors. With this useful piece of equipment, you can teach your students how to use the automated external defibrillator correctly in combination with CPR. It also gives students the confidence to act in public when someone suffers a sudden cardiac arrest. Thus, adding the automated external defibrillator trainer to your classes could save a lot of lives in the future.
Please note that Mentone Educational has a lot more training manikins and accessories that could enhance the quality of your classes. We have manikins that demonstrate more intricate procedures such as intubation, but also additional accessories that can make your class more realistic, subsequently preparing your students better for the future.
When you are looking to put together your equipment for CPR classes, we always recommend contacting Mentone Educational for some assistance during this process. You can also visit the Mentone Educational showroom, where you can view all our instructional equipment in person.
