Lifesaver - the game in the film that teaches you life-saving skills

Would you know what to do in an emergency?
30,000 people each year in the UK have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest where the ambulance services attempt resuscitation - and less than 10% of those people will survive. Yet, if a bystander starts CPR they could double a person's chances of survival.

Lifesaver is a cutting-edge way to learn life-saving skills anytime, anywhere, through four action-packed scenarios. It throws you into the heart of the action as you make the crucial decisions and learn the essential skills needed to save a life.

The Resuscitation Council (UK) combined forces with award-winning production company UNIT9 to develop Lifesaver. It was written and directed by BAFTA award-winner Martin Percy, and features the actress Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens).

In September 2017, it was updated to include a brand-new scenario focused on young people and Lifesaver VR, a virtual reality version, was launched to bring digital CPR into new dimensions. In 2018 Lifesaver was on display in the Wellcome Collection’s Can Graphic Design Save Your Life? Exhibition.




A study was conducted by Dr Joyce Yeung, et al. to compare the effect of Lifesaver training only, face-to-face (F2F) training only, and a combination of Lifesaver and F2F training. Read the results published in journal "Resuscitation".
