Teaching lifesaving skills in all schools in England will become a requirement from 2020 under new government health education plans. Children as young as 5 will be taught basic first aid whilst secondary school students will be shown how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and gain an understanding of defibrillator use and basic treatment for common injuries.
Leading organisations, The British Heart Foundation, St John Ambulance and British Red Cross have together been campaigning for several years to implement CPR training in schools with the aim to improve cardiac arrest survival rates. Currently there are 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in England every year with a survival rate of 1 in 11.1
Every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces the chance of survival by up to 10 per cent, whilst performing CPR can more than double the chances of survival in some cases.
With this important introduction to the curriculum, Eureka! is offering a range of resuscitation training aids to complement its already vast range of first aid training supplies and devices, suitable for use in schools.
Introducing Prestan Ultralite manikins Eureka! has selected Prestan Ultralite manikins for its resuscitation training portfolio. The portable and durable manikins are the latest addition to the established Prestan range and offer high quality and realism at a price that will suit even the tightest of school budgets.
The manikins have been designed for fast and easy set-up, ease of cleaning, portability and easy storage. All manikins are vinyl and latex free and compatible with AED trainer pads. By using the lung bag included with the kit, your students will clearly see the chest rise as they blow air into the manikin’s airway. This with a realistic head tilt provides a very lifelike simulation.
When you purchase this product from Eureka!, you will receive a set of 4 stackable manikins complete with compression pistons and lung bags, each kit is supplied with a handy carry case and detachable shoulder strap, a clear instruction-guide and a three-year warranty for peace-ofmind.
As with all Eureka! orders, delivery is offered free of charge.
