We are delighted to announce Brayden Baby, the new arrival to ‘our family’ range of Brayden manikins. Brayden Baby has been designed to be an ideal teaching manikin for Paediatric BLS, EPALS and EPILS.
Developed with help from leading European experts in the field of infant resuscitation, Brayden Baby’s unique features include intuitive lights that provide real-time feedback for ventilation training and lights providing real-time feedback for chest compressions (depth, rate, recoil and finger/thumb position). When all component parts of chest compressions are performed correctly, a CPR quality indication light illuminates on the forehead of the Brayden Baby manikin. Both sets of lights help guide the student to perform good quality infant CPR.
Our new arrival has just been officially launched at the European Paediatric Resuscitation & Emergency Medicine Congress (PREM) in Ghent and has received tremendous interest and praise – over 100 professionals took part in the introductory workshops. These were led by Liesje Andre, Resuscitation Lead for Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (to 2018). Ms Andre stated,
‘It was a privilege to be asked to help with the development of the Brayden Baby manikin. Having taught paediatric resuscitation in acute NHS hospitals for over 25 years I wanted a manikin that could provide feedback for both effective chest compressions and ventilation. This new infant manikin does just that. It provides the student with intuitive lights to enable them to visualise the correct technique for quality chest compressions as well as ventilation.
The head positioning and jaw thrust are realistic with the added feature of lights flashing if the student overinflates. I believe this manikin will be invaluable for training infant BLS, enabling the student to visualise for themselves what it actually means to provide effective ventilation without overinflating as well as delivering quality CPR using the correct depth, and recoil. I do believe the Brayden Baby is a game changer for teaching good quality infant CPR’.
Professor Patrick Van de Voorde, Paediatrician and Clinical Head of Emergency Medicine at University Hospital Ghent, who ogranised the PREM meeting, commented:
‘The Brayden Baby is a very useful manikin for teaching good quality infant CPR according to current Guidelines. It has evidently been designed with help from experts! The lights on the manikin give excellent intuitive real-time CPR feedback to help guide the student to perform correct ventilation technique for an infant and help guide the student to perform good quality chest compressions. It is essential that both these key component parts of infant CPR are performed to the highest level in real life to help optimise survival. The Brayden Baby manikin, in my opinion, is unique in its ability to do this’.
