AR70 – Digital Cricoid Pressure Trainer

Adam,Rouilly is delighted to announce the Digital Cricoid Pressure Trainer®.

Developed in collaboration with Dr Osman Abdelatti, Consultant Anaesthetist, the Cricoid Pressure Trainer® has been developed to help facilitate training in the application of the correct amount of cricoid pressure (or Sellick Manoeuvre) which is routinely used during emergency and obstetric anaesthesia and ventilation.

Studies have shown that 95% of clinicians were unable to identify the correct amount of force required to occlude the oesophagus and that 87% were incapable of applying the correct amount of force. The Cricoid Pressure Trainer aims to significantly enhance training utilising the device’s realistic anatomical structures and instantaneous electronic feedback.
