The Resuscitation Council (UK) has released
Lifesaver VR, its new interactive life-saving app, to teach people what to do
when someone has a cardiac arrest. Lifesaver VR invites people into a
time-critical situation and to make decisions while learning to save a life.
This unique and useful app can be downloaded for Apple and Android or by visiting LifesaverVR.org.uk.
Lifesaver VR is a free app designed to teach
effective CPR skills and provide people with the confidence to use them in an
emergency situation. It is an engaging and immersive virtual reality
film-in-a-game that allows the viewer to step into a life or death situation
and learn crucial life-saving skills. It provides CPR instructions and
feedback, and shows the ease of using a defibrillator to boost learning and
confidence in saving lives. The app is suitable for everyone, but the
teen-based scenario will appeal to young people in particular.
Lifesaver Second Edition, an award-winning
non-virtual reality version, has also been updated with the new teen-based
scenario and is also available for download for Apple and Android, and can be played in a web browser by
Lifesaver VR and Lifesaver are written and directed
by BAFTA winner Martin Percy and brought to life by the Resuscitation Council
(UK) and award-winning production company UNIT9.
