ALS Toddler Water Rescue - by Lifecast®
We are excited to release details of our collaboration with Lifecast Body Simulation to create a 'World-first' for water rescue training.
The Advanced Water Rescue Toddler manikin is designed to mimic a drowned person in the water and delivers realistic medical simulation training that prepares rescuers for the real world.
No other rescue manikin provides this level of fidelity (Realism), with opportunities to practice rescue skills, coupled with the continuation of care to the Hospital and the Intensive Care Unit.
When in water, the hydrostatic squeeze (pressure of the water) closes a valve within the lung mechanics. Once rescued from the water, the mechanism releases, creating the movement of the lungs and chest.
Submerging the manikin creates an amount of water in the oropharynx, the middle part of the throat behind the mouth, which can be removed using manual or suction methods.
The drowning mechanism even allows for the manikin to create “foam” to replicate the noises and foaming commonly seen in drowning people. When people drown they can inhale about 30ml of water into the lungs, and the manikin is able to replicate this phenomenon, as well as allow for dry lung drownings.
The manikin, which is patent-pending, has taken two years of research and development to perfect.
