Let’s face it, training manikins, AED trainers, and first aid supplies for your courses can get expensive. Proper maintenance is imperative in order for you and your students to get the most out of your courses. Here are some tips:
Cleaning and Maintenance for CPR Manikins and Medical Simulators:
- Follow manufacturer directions (when available) for cleaning, disassembling, and storing manikins.
- Always have students use CPR Practice Shields while training.
- Manikins should always be cleaned and dried after use, and prior to storing.
- Use BZK Antiseptic Wipes, warm soapy water, or a very low chemical-based cleaner for disinfecting.
- Wash all external and internal surfaces with disinfecting solution.
- Rinse all surfaces with fresh water.
- Dry immediately.
- Store in a dry, cool place.
Cleaning and Maintenance for AED Trainers:
