Bystander CPR Saves Lives

Little Anne QCPR

Now with QCPR feedback technology, to help instructors improve CPR training quality, efficiency, and learner engagement.

Improve quality to increase survival

Research shows that quality bystander CPR is directly associated with positive cardiac arrest outcomes.1,2 Training helps prepare a bystander to deliver CPR, but it is a challenge for instructors to provide accurate and objective feedback on their performance.

Little Anne is now available with feedback technology, which has been shown to improve CPR skill acquisition and performance.3

Little Anne QCPR uses Bluetooth Smart technology, connecting with tablets and smartphones to deliver QCPR measurement and feedback. 

Fun & Engaging

With objective feedback and scoring, learners are motivated not only to compete with one another, but also to try to beat their own best score. The competition element makes training more engaging and interactive and has been demonstrated to improve motivation.3 

Measure to improve

The following options can be used with Little Anne QCPR to obtain real-time and summary feedback of CPR performance. The feedback interface is consistent with other Laerdal QCPR solutions, and has been proven to be intuitive and effective for performing and improving quality CPR.

QCPR Instructor App

With this app, the instructor gets a performance overview of up to six manikins, simultaneously. Using their own observations and the objective feedback from the app, the instructor can quickly and effectively coach the learners to improve.

QCPR Learner App

This app can be used by the learner to practice on their own. Multiple learners can also use the app to coach each other. 

  

The QCPR Instructor app and QCPR Learner app cannot both be connected to the manikin at the same time.

Little Anne QCPR works with:
  • Android version 4.4 and upwards
  • iOS version 9* and upwards

*While it is possible to update iPad 2 and iPod Touch 5th Generation to iOS 9, they do not work with Bluetooth Low Energy - so they will not work with the Little Anne QCPR apps.

SkillGuide

Small and portable, SkillGuide provides a tethered “plug and play” feedback option that can be used for standalone training, or as a supplement to the apps. While the Instructor gets feedback from the Instructor app, SkillGuide provides the learner with feedback (the Learner app cannot be connected to the manikin when the Instructor app is connected).

Already own a Little Anne?

All existing Little Anne manikins manufactured after February 8, 1999 can be upgraded quickly and easily with the Little Anne QCPR Upgrade Kit.
