Ruth Lee Full Body Ligature Airway Manikin - 55 lbs.
In high risk environments, or institutions which house vulnerable people such as Mental Health Hospitals, Learning Disability Centres, Police Stations, Prisons, Care Homes, suicide by hanging is tragically high. Staff who might face and need to manage suicides and self-harm on a regular basis, need the correct training to safely manage this. Training includes the use of a hook knife to properly release a ligature and this specialist manikin has been designed to allow teams to learn to effectively and sensitively manage this situation.
This manikin has anatomical features which allow you to practice airway management skills, with the hope of reviving someone who has been found hanging.
