The mannequins were designed to closely resemble an unconscious person and were fitted with airways that could be obstructed and cleared, a head that could be turned and a chest that that could move with inflation.
It was also designed carefully to make people more comfortable while learning the necessary skills. A female face was used as men would not be seen giving mouth to mouth to a male and the mannequin was dressed in a sporty tracksuit. Resusci Anne proved to be a huge success and became a popular training tool for modern CPR. Laerdal Medical now operates internationally selling a range of medical training products and equipment.
