Cricoid Pressure Trainer for RSI

Sellick and hand v2
Posted by Helen Hanson. 23rd March 2020

sellick® is the cricoid pressure trainer that allows healthcare professionals to learn, practice, retain and reproduce the correct technique for effective cricoid pressures. sellick® gives real time feedback on cricoid pressures allowing training clinicians to repeatedly perform the ‘Sellick’s Manoeuvre’ until they develop muscle memory for the correct pressure required in this procedure.  

Repeated practice in a simulated environment allows clinicians to perform this technique with confidence when in a clinical environment. The simulator consists of an anatomically correct ‘neck section’ with thyroid cartilage, cricoid cartilage and proximal trachea, covered by a simulated skin.

The proprietary pressure transfer system, which connects the neck section to the base of the simulator, gives a real to life feel of ‘give’ as the cricoid is depressed under pressure.
