SmartBaby Infant BLS CPR Manikin Training System

SmartBaby Infant BLS CPR Manikin Training System

Press Release Feb 28, 2012

V4EMS Inc is proud to officially announce the release of “Smart Baby.”

SmartBaby is a new infant BLS CPR manikin training system that simulates a baby up to one year in age. It uses Ambu’s Baby manikin complete with the patented hygienic system to eliminate the risk of cross infections, easy maintenance and internal cleaning.

SmartBaby software has the same “look and feel” as the current SmartMan and Airway SmartMan, featuring the hallmark SmartMan colored bars. It provides full results details for all CPR activities, displaying them onscreen, for printout or saved for later viewing.

Product Features
Ambu SmartBaby is fully Guidelines 2010 compliant and provides both practice and test activities for the following CPR skills:

  • Chest Compressions
  • Ventilations
  • 1 Person CPR (30:2)
  • 2 Person CPR (15:2)

Like other SmartMan systems, SmartBaby has 2 training modes:

  • “Standard” mode with real time visual color feedback turned on.
  • “Advanced” test with visual feedback turned off, for a truly accurate & objective score.

According to SmartMan Director Eric Fruitman: “SmartMan pioneered easy to understand, real-time CPR skills feedback on an Ambu adult BLS manikin. Airway SmartMan was added later for advanced airway and CPR training and now Smart Baby is the much anticipated and a great new addition to the line of SmartMan’s leading manikin training systems.”
