2019 AHA Feedback Requirements
Meet the 2019 AHA Feedback Requirement with Laerdal’s Resuscitation Training Solutions
Following the scientific evidence on feedback devices highlighted in the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC, by January 31, 2019, the AHA will require the use of an instrumented directive feedback device or manikin in all AHA courses that teach the skills of adult CPR. 1
Specifically, an instrumented directive feedback device or manikin is one that, at a minimum, provides audio or visual (or both) feedback on the rate and depth of compressions during CPR training. 2
