The award winning Brayden CPR Manikin is an innovative and effective way to teach CPR that enables students to learn the how and why in an intuitive and easy to understand manner. It is the first cost effective manikin to provide real time feedback of CPR performance with the additional capability of allowing users to visualise how CPR effects coronary and cerebral blood flows. This novel and innovative feature allows the Brayden manikin to occupy a unique position amongst other manikins currently available.
The Brayden manikin has three sets of interrelated LED lights that illuminate in direct relation to the depth and rate of compressions performed and these allow the quality of compressions to be assessed in an easy and intuitive way. The Brayden manikin is fully compliant with both the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) 2015 Guidelines and the American Heart Association (AHA) 2015 Guidelines.
The ERC 2015 Guidelines for Resuscitation identify the usefulness of feedback from devices during CPR training as a way of improving trainees skill acquisition and retention. The Brayden manikin achieves this in an innovative and effective way and allows trainers to assess objectively whether chest compressions are being delivered in accordance with recommendations, rather than simply relying on making a subjective estimation
Being able to see how CPR is having a direct effect on the flow of oxygenated blood to the brain, reinforced with an audible clicker if required, increases the speed at which skills can be both learned and retained. This helps increase the confidence and competence in performing CPR when required.Â As a result, the Brayden manikin is now held in high regard by leading key opinion leaders in Resuscitation.
This training manikin is a useful addition to those currently available. The light effects to show likely sufficient coronary and cerebral flows is novel and will be an effective stimulus for improving the quality of compressions
The Brayden CPR training manikin is a new tool which helps improve the comprehension of the effects of cardio-cerebral resuscitation and facilitates the evaluation of the quality of chest compressions
