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

Tool that teaches how to be aware of the symptoms of a stroke, and how to react.

“Stroke is not only the No. 4 cause of death in the United States, it’s also a leading cause of severe, long-term disability. That's why it’s important to take action immediately. Research conducted by The American Stroke Association shows that patients who take a clot-busting drug, or thrombolytic, within three hours of their first stroke symptom can reduce long-term disability from ischemic stroke – the most common type, accounting for about 87% of all cases. When you know the signs of stroke, the life you save could be your own or someone else's. Learn to spot the signs of stroke, or spot a stroke F.A.S.T. (Face drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulty, Time to call 911) with the help of our mobile app for iphone/ipad. Your life is in your hands."
