This month's featured product is the AED Practi-TRAINER!

 CPR, while an integral and crucial component of the resuscitation process, often isn't enough to convert your patient's heartbeat to an effective rhythm. Dramatically increase survivability rates of your patient during a cardiac emergency by performing CPR in conjunction with the use of an AED.
Early defibrillation is a critical component to master in the cardiac chain of survival.

An introduction, even a brief one, coupled with training increases bystander confidence and improves performance in AED usage. Equip yourself and your staff to increase survivability rates for persons in sudden cardiac arrest knowing that no device other than a defibrillator has consistently improved long-term survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

WNL's Universal AED Practi-TRAINER has been completely updated and features many functional improvements from their last version. They gathered feedback from customers, worked with both a designer and a manufacturer to produce an incredible product. Fully compliant with the new 2010 ECC CPR guidelines, this AED training unit includes a replaceable scenario/language module - making it the most unique and cost effective unit on the market today.

As an instructor, a few of the features I love include the built-in metronome with audible tones and a flashing light to help students time their compressions to 100 per minute. The clear voice prompts, even when the unit is at low volume, guide students through each step of the defibrillation process. As for the training pads, they conform perfectly to the torso and leave no sticky residue on my Prestan CPR manikins!

With training comes confidence. Participants will actively embrace both their and the AED's role in the cardiac chain of survival. And that confidence is what saves lives.

Worried that when ECC guidelines are updated, you'll need to buy an entirely new unit or send it out for costly re-programming? Not with this model – to upgrade to the newest guidelines all you have to do is replace the inexpensive plug-in firmware module!
