Ensure you’re prepared to provide lifesaving first aid training to your students
Supplier Focus: Health and Safety
Teaching lifesaving skills in all schools in England will become a requirement from 2020 under new government health education plans. Children as young as 5 will be taught basic first aid whilst secondary school students will be shown how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and gain an understanding of defibrillator use and basic treatment for common injuries.
Leading organisations, The British Heart Foundation, St John Ambulance and British Red Cross have together been campaigning for several years to implement CPR training in schools with the aim to improve cardiac arrest survival rates. Currently there are 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in England every year with a survival rate of 1 in 11. (1)
Every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces the chance of survival by up to 10 per cent, whilst performing CPR can more than double the chances of survival in some cases. (2)
With this important introduction to the curriculum, Eureka! is offering a range of resuscitation training aids to complement its already vast range of first aid training supplies and devices, suitable for use in schools.
Introducing Prestan Ultralite manikins
Eureka! has selected Prestan Ultralite manikins for its resuscitation training portfolio. The portable and durable manikins are the latest addition to the established Prestan range and offer high quality and realism at a price that will suit even the tightest of school budgets.
The manikins have been designed for fast and easy set-up, ease of cleaning, portability and easy storage. All manikins are vinyl and latex free and compatible with AED trainer pads. By using the lung bag included with the kit, your students will clearly see the chest rise as they blow air into the manikin’s airway. This with a realistic head tilt provides a very lifelike simulation.
When you purchase this product from Eureka!, you will receive a set of 4 stackable manikins complete with compression pistons and lung bags, each kit is supplied with a handy carry case and detachable shoulder strap, a clear instruction-guide and a three-year warranty for peace-of-mind.
As with all Eureka! orders, delivery is offered free of charge.
Ensure hygiene with disposable face shields and manikin wipes
Guarantee safe and hygienic delivery of student CPR training with face shields and manikin wipes, designed specially for a quick and easy turnaround.
Using a face shield not only provides a hygienic barrier with the resuscitation manikin, but also offers a genuine experience of utilising a face shield in a real-life situation, should one be available.
Disposable manikin wipes supplied in an easy dispensing drum prevent cross contamination between students, whilst the anti-microbial formula ensures no damage to your manikin.
First aid supplies how you want them
Eureka! offers an extensive range of first aid supplies and kits. Providing schools with a variety of options means that only products bound to be used need be purchased.
Fully assembled kits are available in durable moulded cases with hinged lids and mounting brackets, whilst handy bum bags, with or without contents included, present an alternative option that may be more suitable to your student training sessions.
Basic first aid supplies such as bandages, dressings and plasters can be ordered in small quantities avoiding any wastage of products and money.
Training defibrillators and pads complete your training needs
Eureka! is a one-stop-shop for all your school first aid, hygiene and safety needs. Avoid the hassle of searching for training defibrillators and order them at the same time as your CPR and first aid training supplies. Eureka! offers Zoll and IPAD training defibs and stock replacement pads for easy reordering.
At Eureka! there is no minimum order quantity for free delivery, meaning you can replace the pads as and when you need rather than holding a stock. www.eurekadirect.co.uk
