Who is Annie?  Is she OK?  Are you OK Annie?

Michael Jackson posed the question in his classic song, Smooth Criminal.  Ya, you know the song and probably remember the video.  It’s the one where he performed his famous gravity-defying gangster lean.  What does this have to do with Medicine?  If you ever took a CPR class, then you met Annie.  You just didn’t know it.

Rescue Anne or CPR Annie, is a training mannequin used for teaching cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).  Michael Jackson just wanted to make sure she was OK.

Here’s an excerpt from Spike Lee’s “Bad” Michael Jackson’s documentary explaining who Annie is.

    Annie the CPR Doll was not used for training in the US until AFTER MJ wrote the Song. SORRY. Five YEARS AFTER. He wouldn’t have been aware of it, as it wasn’t patented for Use in the US until five years after he wrote the song.
