Training of Basic Life Support (BLS) in Thailand is limited due to unavailable and costly devices for practicing. We developed a Chiang Mai Manikin to provide capable manikin for BLS training, and to determine the efficacy of training manikin compared to the actual model. Methods: This was a descriptive study of our newly developed Ching Mai Manikin. The prototype was determined by five experienced BLS instructors, including Cardiologists, Anesthesiologist, and Emergency Physicians. We used a questionnaire to evaluate the manikin’s structures, the efficacy of training, and its similarity to an actual model. Correlation among instructors was also calculated. Result: Chiang Mai Manikin trainer prototype was consisted of essential structures for BLS training and was effective for use in BLS training according to all experienced BLS instructors. The manikin was able to feedback on the duration of assisted ventilation and show the accuracy of electrode pads placement. Kappa correlation coefficient of the manikin trainer was 0.94. Evaluation of the similarity to an actual manikin with a visual analog scale resulted in a median of 37 out of 50 (IQR 34-40) accounted for 92.5%. Intraclass correlation was 0.79 (95% Confidence interval 0.19-0.98,  p = 0.01) Conclusion: Chiang Mai Manikin trainer is effective in the use of BLS training.
