Laerdal inflatable resusci-Anne training manikin with inflator in carrying case, 1960-1985.
The Resusci-Anne manikin is a model which accurately simulates the human respiratory system for training purposes. This example trained drivers in the London Ambulance Service to provide Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), known as ‘mouth to mouth’, in emergency situations. ‘Mouth to mouth’ ensures oxygen reaches vital organs such as the brain when natural breathing has ceased due to a medical emergency. It involves breathing into a casualty’s mouth and administering chest compressions to stimulate heart beat.
These manikins are used by emergency and non-emergency personnel on life saving courses. Anne’s face is reputedly based on a drowned woman pulled from the River Seine in Paris in the late 1880s. The mortician was apparently so moved by her serene features he had a death mask made of her face.
