- Upgrade Kit
- Directions for use
Designed for use with standard Little Anne training manikins, this upgrade kit allows you to convert your regular Little Anne into an AED Little Anne manikin.
Ensuring you're providing the most realistic training experience for your learners will prepare them to use their newly acquired skills in the event of an emergency, with confidence.
This upgrade kit will allow you to turn your regular Little Anne manikin into a Little Anne AED manikin, allowing you to train your students in both CPR and AED usage, so if someone around them suffered a cardiac arrest, they would know what to do and what would be required of them.
For every minute that treatment is delayed, the victim's survival chance decreases 10%. However, if treatment is delivered within 3-5 minutes of collapse, their survival chance increases from 6% to 74%. These statistics display how important it is that the victim receives the definitive treatment as quickly as possible; training with a Little Ann that has been upgraded to an AED Little Anne manikin will ensure your student are prepared.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
