This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Timely cardiopulmonary resuscitation can often determine whether somebody lives or dies, and performing it properly is key to swinging the odds in their favor. These CPR dummies allow people to practice the technique as many times as needed until they are comfortable executing it. Some are also suitable for training the Heimlich maneuver, abdominal thrusts, and airway obstruction removal. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 05, 2019:

When it comes to saving somebody's life, the more prepared you are, the better. So it is important to train with dummies that offer the most realistic experience possible. With that in mind, we did our best to choose models that feature lifelike head and neck movements, so students get in the habit of positioning the body properly for the best chance of resuscitation.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
