HeartCode® on SimManager™ Express

HeartCode® courses on the SimManager™ Express platform provide a cost-effective solution to deliver consistent training with simplified administration. Allowing training to be adapted to different learning styles and schedules provides flexibility for both the students’ needs and time.

Common challenges for CPR training today

Quality

CPR is inherently inefficient; it provides only 10% to 30% of normal blood flow to the heart and 30% to 40% of normal blood flow to the brain even when delivered according to guidelines. This inefficiency highlights the need for trained rescuers to deliver the highest-quality CPR possible.1

Compliance

Today, training resources are being stretched more than ever. Trainers are overwhelmed, classroom space is limited, and schedules are conflicted. This can make it difficult to ensure quality CPR training and demonstrate adherence to protocolsEvery patient deserves the best-developed workforce. 

Cost

Traditional CPR training not only has a direct cost in terms of replacement staff and fees for instructors, but there are also indirect costs, such as the loss of time on the job, which can result in reduced patient care.

HeartCode on SimManager Express helps you advance your training program

Students who had the HeartCode course and practiced CPR on VAMs had significantly more compressions with adequate depth (p < 0.0001) and ventilations with adequate volume (p < 0.0001) than did students trained by instructors.
