Equipment Issues



I'm in the position to purchase a new high fidelity manikin and am faced with deciding between a SimMan Essential w/bleeding or a METIMan Nursing.  I need any feedback on the products and pros/cons of either, including training (onsite vs. off site), ease of use of programming, maintenance needs, warranty experience, technical support (via phone or in person), realism for student use, compatibility with pre-programed scenarios, etc. 

I'd love any feedback at all,

Thank you,
