The Brayden CPR Manikin lets students see the real point of CPR pressure and getting the blood flowing to the brain and other organs.

I didn’t like them at first but the Brayden CPR manikin is a big success in our first aid and CPR classes. It uses animated LED lights under the skin, so you can see the effect their CPR Compression Depth, Speed and Recoil and the quality of your CPR

The visual learning keeps you going, pressing at the correct rate and depth with just the right recoil is difficult and tiring.  The nature of this manikin instantly reinforces CPR Technique and the feel of what is right for CPR students. The Brayden CPR Manikin’s dual modes help structure CPR training: from learning effective CPR to perfecting CPR technique, in accordance with the current ARC guidelines.

It shows you how tiring CPR can be, and a recent study showed the compression rate and depth are variable among rescuers and compressions may be worse in the first 5 minutes of the arrest.

One study of rescuer CPR showed that compressions became shallow within one minute, but providers became aware of fatigue only after 5 min.


When performing compressions, if feasible, change rescuers at least every two minutes to prevent rescuer fatigue and deterioration in chest compressions quality and particularly depth.

Changing rescuers performing chest compressions should be done with a minimum of interruptions to compressions. Quality CPR improves success rates


These LEDs represent the volume of blood being circulated by the depth of the chest compressions.

They fully animate when the depth of compressions is over 5cm – too shallow or without full recoil, they will only partially illuminate.





These LED’s represent the flow of blood from the heart towards the brain.

The speed of the blood flow shown varies according to the depth and speed of compressions, only fully animating when the depth is effective and compressions are at a rate of 100-120 per minute.





These LED’s indicate when blood flow is reaching the brain.

These will only light when the depth and speed of the compressions are both correct.

Effective CPR is a difficult skill to master and you can become fatigued easily. You need quality CPR training.
