Simulaids® Choking Manikin - Adolescent
Choking emergencies are not selective when it comes to age groups, so Simulaids brings to you three generations of choker models from which to chose.
The full body infant comes with one foreign body to simulate choking, while the other products include two objects.
Each manikin functions on the principle of clearing a blocked airway with forced air generated with the proper procedure abdominal thrusts or back blows.
Once the object is lodged in the airway, the student must use the anatomical landmarks to decide where to place their hands and to decide how much pressure is required to accomplish the manoeuvre.
With the appropriate force applied, the students are rewarded with the visual confirmation of an expelled object. Manikins include rib cage, xiphoid process, suprasternal notch to provide anatomical reference, foreign body for airway obstruction, shirt, and soft carry bag.
