As recommended by the updated 2015 CPR Guidelines, Prestan have launched a new CPR Rate Monitor that takes the quality of training feedback to the next level.
When students are practicing CPR compressions on a Prestan Professional Adult Manikin, not only will they see when they have reached and are maintaining the minimum recommended speed of 100cpm, but additionally, they will also see when they reach the upper limit of 120cpm, as the yellow monitor light will flash rapidly to let them know.

The Prestan Professional Adult Manikin, makes it exceptionally easy to see if a student is performing chest compressions ‘at least 100/min’ as the 2010 Guidelines recommended. Achieving two green lights provided the instructor (and the student), with the information showing that the student met the minimum number of compressions needed to be successful.
Now, and with no change in price, Prestan introduces a new BLUE monitor version of the Prestan Professional Adult Manikin. In addition to the visual feedback provided by the current monitor, the BLUE monitor will rapidly flash the yellow light when the 120/min compression rate is reached, indicating that the student is compressing too fast. The yellow light will continue flashing until the compression rate has slowed back down below 120/min.
- Begin compressions on the Prestan Professional Adult Manikin.
- When you reach the correct depth of 2-2.4″, you will hear an audible CLICK to confirm.
- The clicker sends a signal to your CPR Rate Monitor. With each compression, the CPR Rate Monitor instantly and continuously responds to your speed with colour-coded LED lighting for invaluable feedback.
The CPR Rate Monitor can also be purchased separately and easily installed into a Prestan Adult Manikin.
The updated CPR Rate Monitor (Blue) will replace the former CPR Rate Monitor for new 2016 purchases.
