Save a Child’s Life by First Training with the Crisis Manikin

It’s a universal constant: Kids excel at getting themselves into trouble, from pulling hot pots and pans filled with boiling water off stoves onto themselves to wandering into unsupervised pools. All that needs to be present is one potentially dangerous item to cause the worst of catastrophes.

As an emergency medical professional, you need to be ready well ahead of time to deal with various child-related medical emergencies. This is precisely why proper training is critical: Rely on a state-of-the-art, full-body manikin that offers realistic, child-airway management training, CPR education, and more: the Nasco Child Crisis Manikin with ECG Simulator.

Nasco Child Crisis Manikin with ECG Simulator

By combining all of the skill stations, the Nasco Child Crisis Manikin with ECG Simulator is able to offer extremely realistic training by simulating a five-year-old child, thereby providing complete PALS-training capabilities. The manikin’s anatomical accuracy is demonstrated in its life-like landmarks, which include a mouth, tongue, oral pharynx, epiglottis, arytenoids, vocal cords, trachea, and esophagus.

In addition to its palpable and visual landmarks, the Nasco Child Crisis Manikin with ECG Simulator’s head, neck, and jaw are fully integrated, allowing for a realistic, jaw-thrust feature. It also includes an Arrhythmia Simulator that is capable of recreating 17 adult heart rhythms and 17 pediatric rhythms. Utilize its separate left and right lungs for auscultation and its inflatable stomach bladder to indicate esophageal intubation. Some additional specs include:

a blood pressure arm that features:

  • a palpable radial pulse
  • a speaker in arm reproduces real blood pressure sounds

a defibrillation chest that features:

  • manual, automatic, and semi-automatic defibrillation modes
  • rhythms detected at four ECG sites and two defibrillation sites

an IV arm that offers:

  • articulated biceps for antecubital and dorsal access
  • replaceable skin and veins
  • smaller lumen tubing that simulates the size of a child’s veins
