CPR Teddy Basics

CPR TeddyTM is the latest innovation in CPR practice aids! Parents, babysitters, teachers and other child care providers can now practice their Infant or Child CPR and Choking Rescue Skills with this practical and adorable bear. Keep CPR TeddyTM visible as a gentle reminder to continually practice your CPR skills and to reassure parents that their child is safe in your care.

Here's how CPR TeddyTM works:

CPR TeddyTM uses the latest American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.

Squeeze his left paw to practice child (1-8 years) CPR and choking rescue skills or his right paw to practice infant (birth to 1 year) CPR and choking rescue skills. For both infant and child, a voice quickly reviews what to do if the infant or child is choking and then what to do if the infant or child loses consciousness. Following this quick review, the voice prompts the user through a one-minute practice session of his or her CPR skills. A metronome will help you pace compressions and a light on the bear's bow tie will indicate if you are pressing the right depth.

CPR TeddyTM comes with a breathing mask that slips over the bear's nose. This mask is connected to a small air bag that fits into a pocket in the bear's chest. When prompted to give breaths, this will allow you to see the rise and fall of the bear's chest.

CPR TeddyTM also comes with a full-length training DVD, providing instruction on Infant and Child CPR, Choking Rescue, and First Aid, as well as tips for child proofing your home and car. And as a special service, the company gives you the opportunity to register for a Quarterly Reminder Program, sending either a postcard or email reminding you to practice with your CPR TeddyTM.

CPR TeddyTM can also be used to introduce children to these life-saving skills. No home, classroom, or child care center should be without CPR TeddyTM!

Why do I care?

I was first introduced to CPR Teddy through a link in a MOPS email (Mothers of Preschoolers). As a mom, I've often wondered if I would remember what to do if my son or daughter started to choke or stopped breathing. I think this product is a wonderful idea and I wholeheartedly suggest it to everyone who has a child in his or her life.

In fact, I think it's so great that I signed up to be a distributor and offer the CPR Teddy on eBay. Click here to see my listings.

I hope you will seriously consider if this product could benefit your home. Even if it's not for you, I urge you to contact your local Red Cross, YMCA, or hospital to enroll in an infant & child CPR course. It's the one thing you never want to use, but you better know how to use it.

CPR TeddyTM recommends that all parents, babysitters, and other child care providers take a complete CPR and First Aid course for Adult, Child, and Infant rescue taught by a certified instructor. CPR TeddyTM manikins are intended to assist in practicing skills already acquired, and are not meant to be used in an actual rescue.
