On March 10, 2017, the Uzbekistan RCS and the Regional Office of the ICRC in Central Asia handed over 20 mannequins that are necessary for the basic training of cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
To know definitely, to act correctly - to save life! This is the formula for success, which guides first aid trainers of the RCP of Uzbekistan. After all, nothing is as valuable as life. In an extreme situation, the rescue of one’s life sometimes happens by accident, by the witness of the accident, who became the rescuer on the occasion, who may not act on certainty. Such actions cannot be implemented by professional rescuers. They need to know exactly how to act in this or that situation, focusing on real experience. Increase of professionalism is promoted by practical training on teaching simulators for rescuers - mannequins. Simulator-mannequins help in training and working out basic methods of rendering first aid in practice. The use of specialized simulator- mannequins, which accurately simulate the structure of the human body and its physiological characteristics, is the most effective technique. It helps trainers on first aid of the Uzbekistan RCS to conduct classes with the maximum effect. Equipping the new generation of auxiliary tools and materials will help to effectively use in practice the knowledge gained in the course of seminars on first aid.
