Actar D-fib CPR Manikin

BACK TO ARCHIVE


The Actar D-fib training manikin helps people learn and practice the simple steps of CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation).

This design incorporates several new features while retaining the simplicity and affordability that have made Actar manikins a standard in the CPR training industry.

All important features and anatomical landmarks are provided. The airway opens when the head is tilted, the chest rises and falls realistically during rescue breathing, the ribcage is engineered to simulate the feel of a human chest, providing realistic chest compressions. The mandible can be pushed into a jaw thrust - a technique taught to healthcare providers, the contoured torso allows for accurate placement of AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) electrode pads.

The four main components are injection moulded in recyclable polypropylene, a material that is lightweight and durable. The single-use lung bag includes a face shield that creates a hygienic barrier between the trainee and the manikin during mouth to mouth contact.
