How effective are your chest compressions and ventilations? TheAmbu SmartMan knows. Using specially developed software, the SmartMan CPR manikin connects to a computer and provides you with real-time performance feedback. Colored bars on the computer screen show you the depth and rate of the chest compressions being delivered, as well as the recommended release of pressure from the chest. The SmartMan also displays the rate, duration and volume of your ventilations. To top it all off, it stores your performance records so you can continually assess and improve your CPR skills.

Windows 98 or later

Cost: $2,250 (torso manikin)
