CPR manikins come in different brands with different materials. Each has its own guidelines on cleaning procedures to keep proper hygiene as well as not to damage the product. Even though there is only a slight probability of cross-contamination from CPR manikins because most trainers now require face shields/masks upon usage, it is still best to clean it before and after a training session to secure the safety of the students with or without its protective equipment. It is also recommended to use manikins with removable face skins for hygienic purposes.
What you’ll need
A mixture of 60 ml cup of non-scented liquid chlorine bleach per 5 L of water
Alternative: 70% Isopropyl Alcohol Wipes / Alcohol-based manikin wipes
Adhesive Remover Spray
Soap and water / Soap pads
Implement this regular cleaning routine every time a student finishes using a manikin.
This will prevent transmission to the next user.
After a day of training, you want to make sure that you won’t let the bacteria sit on your manikins overnight.
- Use Q-tips in cleaning the tiny details of the manikin most especially in respiratory passages to make sure these areas have no bacteria when students breathe on it.
- Use gloves when you disinfect the manikin with a bleach solution so as not to damage your skin.
