Strategic Partnership Promises to Revolutionize the CPR Training Industry

Vicedo Marti SL, an industry-leading plastics manufacturer located in Spain, and U.S.-based WorldPoint ECC, Inc., a 25-year distribution partner with the American Heart Association and a leading global sales & marketing organization of healthcare training products, are proud to announce their new global partnership, with plans to disrupt the CPR Training industry.

Committed to improving outcomes resulting from sudden cardiac arrest, Vicedo Marti and WorldPoint intend to develop innovative, affordable, and high-quality CPR training products that meet today’s CPR training needs.

As a results of this partnership, WorldPoint has recently launched their first product collaboration: CPR Taylor® and Baby Tyler®.

Recent studies are indicating the need for diversity and inclusivity in healthcare especially CPR training.  For instance, women are less likely to receive bystander CPR, yet current CPR training manikins on the market only simulate males. CPR Taylor ® and Baby Tyler® were created to address that healthcare inequity as well as other disparities.

WorldPoint has been serving the CPR training industry for over 25 years and recognizes the need for realism in training.  That’s why CPR Taylor was created which includes a female chest skin along with a male chest skin as part of the standard product.  It is not an accessory or add-on.

By leveraging their expertise, the Vicedo Marti/WorldPoint partnership is uniquely positioned to respond to market demands and deliver high-quality and affordable products that the industry needs, now and for decades to come.

Discover our exclusive real-like breathing system

By Key Features No Comments

Did you know that the Practi-Man adult simulators have a unique breathing system including a nose with real function?

Unlike other products on the market, Practi-Man includes among its main functions the most real-like breathing system in the BSL CPR field.

The PRACTI-MAN manikins nose is functional and it is connected to the lung and mouth thanks to it´s exclusive VALVE. The exclusive valve system of NON return air to the mouth after insufflation helps to avoid cross contamination during training session.

In addition, it should not be forgotten that if the nose is not pinched correctly, the lungs will not fill and the chest will not rise, a very important step to check a correct CPR training.

It should also be noted that the lung is semi-disposable and it could be used to train a group of people during a CPR session. In terms of durability, they are made so that 1 unit lasts during a full training session.

Thanks to the special and exclusive valve which includes the non-return air system, the real-like breathing system prevents cross contamination while using the same lung during the training session.

The exclusive Practi-Man system is also very ecological, since it avoids to replace the lungs for each student. Additionally Practi-Man lung is very easy and fast to replace saving time during a training ssession.

Of course, Practi-Man recommends the use of face shields, pocket mask and any other prevention tool as complement of the breathing real like system to avoid any cross contamination.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A HEART ATTACK AND A CARDIAC ARREST

By Uncategorized No Comments

What´s the difference between a heart attack and a cardiac arrest? Good question!

First of all, if at some point our heart stops pumping blood through the body, therefore  a cardiac arrest or cardiorespiratory arrest has occurred.

The cardiorespiratory arrest corresponds to an electrical problem of the heart by which it stops working and consequently the breathing and the conscience.

It is possible to survive a sudden cardiac arrest with a correct treatment: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, a defibrillator or chest compressions can save a person’s life while emergency medical personnel arrive.

On the other hand, a heart attack  is completely different. In this case the heart continues to beat, but the blood cannot reach it  because there are one or more blood vessels blocked. When this blood doesn’t reach the heart, attack occurs, which permanently damages the organ. The obstruction of the blood vessels is usually caused by the patient’s genetics, cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and/or sedentary lifestyle.
