Basic Billy was developed utilizing the results of extensive studies focusing on the depth and force of compression during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The Basic Billy CPR Manikin was designed with optimal force and compression values in mind.
With cardiac failure as one of the leading causes of death, let Basic Billy show that it is not difficult to provide help and save lives through correct cardiac massage and ventilation technique. Basic Billy is both anatomically correct and hygienic to use. The head is easy to tilt in order to open the airways for mouth-to-mouth and mouth-to-nose resuscitation. Additionally, the thorax raises as the lungs are ventilated. Mask ventilation is also possible and Basic Billy comes with 10 lung bags and 1 additional face mask for hygienic reasons. Low priced disposable airways and a carrying bag ensure hygienic and easy care of the manikin.
Even better, Basic Billy is actually two manikins in one as it can be used as either an adult or a child (of approximate age 12) CPR trainer. Just use the easy-to-replace springs located in the back of the trainer to give the realistic depth feedback of either the adult (5cm) or child (4.5cm).
