One of the key elements the AHA is requiring by January 1, 2019!
- The use of an “instrumented directive feedback device or manikin in all AHA courses that teach the skill of CPR.“
- The device at a minimum “must measure real-time audio feedback or visual feedback on compression rate and depth.”
- The Practi-CRM (WNLCRM) fulfills this requirement for visual feedback of compression rate as defined by the AHA: “Device with screen display that detects rate of actual compressions and indicates visually whether to push faster or to push slower in real time to meet AHA recommendations.”
The Practi-CRM Compression Rate Monitor is designed to measure compression rate when practicing CPR on a manikin. Worn on the students’ wrist, a diode illuminates red when compressions are below 100 cpm or above 120 cpm. When compression rate is between 100 and 120 cpm the diode illuminates green, allowing users to self-check their timing. A flexible wristband fits any size wrist and may be used with any training manikin.
