Video-gaming style of instructing people in how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
“An estimated 60,000 people each year in the UK have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, and, sadly, less than 10% will survive. Yet, if a bystander is able to start CPR, they could double a person’s chances of survival. The Resuscitation Council (UK) has combined forces with award-winning production company UNIT9 to develop ‘Lifesaver’—a revolutionary new way to learn CPR … Lifesaver is a live-action movie you play like a game. It just happens to show how to save someone’s life. It throws you into the heart of the action, changing what happens in movies, showing real people in real places. … You learn by doing: do it wrong, and see the consequences; do it right, and sense the thrill of saving a life. And it is free.” Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK), UK | Source no longer available
