An estimated 60,000 people each year in the UK have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and, sadly, less than 10% of those people 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 which scooped four gold and one silver e-learning awards, and People's Voice Webby winner in the Education and Reference (handheld devices) category.
Lifesaver is a live-action movie you play like a game. It just happens to show you 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. It was written and directed by six-time BAFTA/Emmy nominee Martin Percy, and features the actress Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens).
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 completely FREE!
