Resusci Anne - the indispendable CPR training manikin
What (or who) is Resusci Anne?
Resusci Anne is a training manikin specifically designed to help teach CPR, having been developed by Asmund Laerdal in 1960. She is a life-sized, realistic training tool that helps students better understand the processes involved in resuscitation. The model accurately simulates the respiratory system and all external body landmarks for effective training. This lifelike model offers the chance for trainees to practice their skills in as close to a real-life situation as possible.
Her role in CPR training
In CPR training students approach the Resusci Anne manikin and, on receiving no response, proceed to administer CPR. They might not be performing CPR on a real life person but Resusci Anne CPR manikin is the next best thing, meaning should they ever need to perform CPR in the future they'll be equipped with the skills and confidence to do so.
The need for effective CPR training
There's a growing need for effective CPR training. According to research conducted by the British Heart Foundation, fewer than 1 in 5 who suffer a survivable cardiac arrest are given potentially life-saving CPR by those around them. On average emergency services take eight minutes to reach an incident, however for the best chance of survival emergency CPR and defibrillation should begin within 4 minutes. That's why St John Ambulance encourages more people to learn CPR and first aid with our range of first aid training courses, so they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
