Data from the American Heart Association shows that not only are women less likely than men to receive bystander CPR when experiencing sudden cardiac arrest; people of color are also less likely to receive life-saving bystander intervention.
To help improve these troubling disparities, WorldPoint Inc. (a member of Citizen CPR Foundation’s Partner Council) recently unveiled two new training tools: CPR Taylor and Baby Tyler. With CPR Taylor’s 3-in-1 design, CPR instructors and students can easily change their manikins to practice CPR delivery on an adult male, adult female and child. CPR Taylor is also available in varying skin tones, a more inclusive reflection of our collective population.
“Cardiac arrest doesn’t discriminate, and neither should your CPR equipment,” says Maggie Hart, Director of Global Marketing, WorldPoint.
WorldPoint’s Baby Tyler, a realistic infant manikin, is also available in a diverse range of skin tones and includes fully movable limbs so that instructors can practice different and realistic CPR and choking scenarios with their students.
