Boston receives donation of resus manikin  

Ambulance staff in Boston have been given a greater opportunity to refresh their CPR training thanks to a kind donation from a hospital charity.

The Pilgrim Hospital Charity Shop has donated a Simbody Resuscitation manikin - which is a very realistic looking doll that is meant to resemble a human casualty - to give staff further local access to the training.

They have also donated a device called a ShockLink, which is linked to a real defibrillator via Bluetooth and simulates different types of cardiac arrests and visually demonstrates when that patient’s heart is in a shockable rhythm.
