A high-capacity training torso known as Resusci Anne QCPR AED AW has been provided by Peninsula Co-op to support advanced training within the Comox Valley Hospital. No average manikin, this specific tool is used for the administration of CPR and provides real-time feedback (audio and video), focusing on chest compression quality, use of crash cart defibrillators, AEDs, and ventilation support for best patient outcomes. As well, this torso manikin provides high flexibility due to the portable nature of the equipment, ease of use, and multi-functionality.

Research shows improvement in response times to a cardiac arrest increases the chance for patient survival and improves neurological outcomes. Regular mock code training supported by equipment like Resusci Anne provides critical practice for healthcare staff which means more patients have a chance for survival and revived patients have fewer long-term complications.

Thanks to Peninsula Co-op, our healthcare teams have access to leading-edge equipment to support advanced training so that when we enter the hospital, we receive top-of-the-line medical care.

Watch the video above to see in fast-motion how Resusci Anne is quickly set up and used for mock code training. To learn more or if you are interested in supporting the purchase of a second Resusci Anne, please reach out.
