What does the light on my CPR manikin mean?

CPR manikin

  • Light off: You don't press the chest deep enough, or the positioning of your hands could be better.
  • Light flashing quickly: Your compressions are too fast.
  • Light  red: Your compressions are too slow.
  • Light green: Your compressions are going well!

Baby manikin

  • Light red: 0-60 compressions per minute.
  • Light orange: 60-80 compressions per minute.
  • One light green: 80-100 compressions per minute.
  • Two lights green: 100-120 compressions per minute. This is the correct speed. 

Does one green light go out? That means you are slowing down, indicating you need to up your speed.
