Reminder: As of January 2019, the AHA has required the use of an instrumented directive feedback device or manikin in all AHA courses. “The 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC highlighted research showing the benefit of feedback devices that provide learners with real-time, audio-visual corrective feedback on aspects such as chest compression rate, depth, and recoil.” For more information please visit the American Heart Association website.
CPR & First Aid in Youth Sports Training Kit
