  • Ability to practice medication dose calculations and administration through intramuscular injections at the deltoid, gluteal, ventrogluteal, and thigh sites
  • Realistic male and female urinary catheterization and enema procedures may be performed with fluid return
  • Wound modules can be added to create realistic scenarios for wound assessment and care

Resus Anne with skills guide and Resus Anne with reporter

The key features of Resus Anne are:

  • Natural obstruction of the airway allows students to learn the important technique of opening the airway so that in a real-life situation they know how to effectively administer air to the victim
  • Head tilt/chin lift and jaw thrust allows students to correctly practice airway manoeuvres necessary when resuscitating a real victim
  • Occluded airway with hyperextension stresses proper head position
  • Realistic resistance for chest compressions allow the students to experience the amount of pressure needed to perform proper chest compressions in a real life situation
  • Anatomically correct landmarks and sternal notch allow the students to practice identification of all anatomical landmarks relevant to adult CPR
  • Articulating arms, legs, and head allow realistic weight and handling of an adult during obstructed airway manoeuvres
    Carotid pulse simulation to realistically check for pulse
  • Disposable non-rebreathing airways are suitable for use by more than one student during class and are quick and easy to change after each training session
  • SkillReporter CPR performance module provides immediate objective feedback on ventilation duration and volume, compression depth, and hand position, and allows a comprehensive printed report for student performance documentation and debriefing
  • Removable/reusable faces allow each student to have their own mouth-to-mouth face and offers easy after class cleaning and sanitation 

Little Anne adult CPR mannequins

The key features of Little Anne are:

  • Oral and nasal passages allow realistic nose pinch required for mouth-to-nose ventilation
  • Natural obstruction of the airway allows students to learn the important technique of opening the airway
  • Head tilt/chin lift and jaw thrust allow students to correctly practice all manoeuvres necessary when resuscitating a real victim
  • Realistic airway function means that the airway remains obstructed without proper head tilt/chin lift or jaw thrust. Chest rise is seen with correct ventilations
  • Anatomically correct landmarks and sternal notch allow the student to practice identification of all anatomical landmarks relevant to adult CPR
  • Audible feedback reinforces correct compression depth. An optional "clicker" feature signals the correct compression depth
  • Realistic chest compression resistance allows the students to experience the amount of pressure needed to perform proper chest compressions in a real-life situation
  • Economical disposable airways for quick and easy clean-up
  • Removable and reusable faces for convenient and affordable maintenance

Little Junor child CPR mannequins

They key features of Little Junior are:

  • Oral and nasal passages allow realistic nose pinch required for mouth-to-nose and mouth-to-mouth ventilation
  • Natural obstruction of the airway allows students to learn the important technique of opening the airway. Abdominal thrusts can also be practiced
  • Head tilt/chin lift and jaw thrust allow students to correctly practice all manoeuvres necessary when resuscitating a real victim
  • Realistic airway function means that the airway remains obstructed without proper head tilt/chin lift or jaw thrust. Chest rise is seen with correct ventilations
  • Anatomically correct landmarks and sternal notch allow the student to practice identification of all anatomical landmarks relevant to child CPR
  • Audible feedback for chest compressions reinforces correct compression depth with an optional "clicker" feature
  • Realistic chest compression resistance allows the students to experience the amount of pressure needed to perform proper chest compressions in a real-life situation
  • Economical disposable airways for quick and easy clean-up
  • Removable and reusable faces for convenient and affordable maintenance

Baby Anne baby CPR mannequins

The key features of Baby Anne are:

  • Oral and nasal passages allow realistic nose pinch required for mouth-to-nose ventilation
  • Natural obstruction of the airway allows students to learn the important technique of opening the airway
  • Head tilt/chin lift and jaw thrust allow students to practice correctly all manoeuvres necessary when resuscitating a real patient
  • Realistic chest compliance means students can experience the proper technique required for chest compressions on infants
